Whisky Doris Caroni Doris 20th Anniversary Rum 1997 23yr 51,1%

RX16123 Good Single Cask 60 bottles Above 250€
“Distinctly Caroni despite its light palate, best for easy sipping.”

The Doris 20th Anniversary Rum is a distinctive Caroni rum with expressive aromas. Users highlight its: aromatic profile, closely reminiscent of molasses and burnt rubber, with notes of wood, dark chocolate, and mocha. It's identified as a round, complex rum showing hints of fruit while offering a unique twist on the typical Caroni profile. The attractive labeling gives a nod to its 23-year maturation process. Its ABV of 51,1% is seamlessly integrated, making it a smooth sipper. However, some users feel it could benefit from more intensity in the palate. Limited to only 60 bottles, this bottle is a must for Caroni enthusiasts and rum collectors alike. Relevant Keywords: Caroni Rum, molasses, dark chocolate, mocha, burnt rubber, whisky doris, 23-year aged rum, strong ABV rum, limited edition rum, rum collectors.

How does this rum taste?

The Doris 20th Anniversary Rum provides a solid yet not remarkable Caroni experience. While it boasts expressive, fruity notes on the nose and hints of menthol and chocolate taste, it falls short in complexity and intensity, creating a rather thin palate.

“Alkohol sehr gut eingebunden, geschmacklich ein runder, komplexer 97er, der eher in Richtung 98er Jahrgang geht. Gefällt mir sehr gut!”

“While I like the nose and do get some dirty Caroni notes there, the palate is more of a let down unfortunately. I do get Mokka, dark chocolate, wood and the slightest hints of dirt and menthol, delivery is very soft and feels very much watered down. Intensity and complexity are very much missing. It is not a horrible Rum per se, but definitely no got to Caroni for me. Cheers to zabo for digging this one up and sharing some samples! 💪”

“die typischen dirty Caroni notes fehlen hier, an der Nase eher fruchtig, ein wenig wie der Le blog à Roger, aber bei weitem nicht so intensiv und komplex…aber jetzt auch nicht so schlecht wie der Felicite Gold etc. Für den aufgerufenen Preis gibt es allerdings deutlich bessere Rums. Besten Dank an Zabo für den Split!”
