“Well-balanced, fruity Caroni with mild smokiness and a pleasant sweetness.”

The Trinidad HTR by The Rum Cask, distilled at Caroni, is a 25-year-old gem that captivates with its unique profile. Aromas of oak, rubber, and dark chocolate blend seamlessly with fruity and nutty notes. The flavor offers a delightful balance of caramelized sweetness, dark chocolate, tar, oak, and rubber, making each sip an experience. Users admire its fruity undertones and mild complexity, with some suggesting a splash of water to enhance the fruity sweetness while mellowing the rubbery edge. This Caroni release stands out with its subtle, less aggressive dirty notes, rounded by a pleasant smokiness. Ideal for those venturing into Caroni rums, it achieves a harmonious balance without overwhelming intensity. Perfect for enthusiasts searching for a refined yet characteristic Trinidadian rum.

“First impression: Unfortunately, I didn't really get around to analyzing this one in peace due to all the bottling of samples. But the first one is already very good. I think it will be corrected. Edit: Tasted again in peace after the bottle had quite a lot of air. Developed very well. But still made a small downward adjustment.”

“Intensely fruity affair. Great nose, heavy sweetness, compote-like fruit combo. In comparison, less workshop aromas than other bottlings. Good overall picture and very tasty. Blind, I don't think I would taste any difference here to a <20-year-old Caroni.”
