“Tasted at the WLP in 2023 and a sample from Jakob (thanks!). A classic 1996 nose with lots of depth, the machine shop notes balanced with very expressive fruit. Slightly less pleasant aromas of smoky oak and overripe mango. Wow! A super-expressive palate. Everything is in place and the evolution on the palate is smooth, complex and satisfying. A loooong finish! With woody and slightly smoky notes, discreet until now. A very fine, assertive rum, elegant and harmonious. The woodiness/smokiness is very present when the glass is empty, but all the aromas are equally present.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023 / Whisky Live 2023 / Bottle Opening 2024: Absolutely impressive cask from the Trinidad stock from 1996. Exquisite blend of sweetness, the typical dirty Caroni markers and spice. The consistently high level of the 1996 Velier Caronis is almost unbelievable!”
