“Aged complexity, balanced fruity notes, well-integrated alcohol, subtle Caroni identity.”

Nautilus, a 31-year-old rum from Caroni distillery, selected by The Duchess, is a cask strength gem aged to perfection.

A light yet flavorful profile, Nautilus offers a blend of traditional Caroni characteristics with fruity undertones and subtle smokiness. It's well-balanced and easy to drink, despite its higher ABV.

How does this rum taste?

The Nautilus Caroni 1991 balances fruity notes of pear, apricot, and red apple with hints of rubber and smoke. While complex and intriguing, its mouthfeel suffers from imbalance. Well-aged but not as expressive as some Caronis.

“Very fruity with the recognizable Caroni notes present but not overpowering. Very well balanced and easy to drink, the 54,1% hits the perfect spot.. Glad to have a couple cl left after the split on the forum. Happy to give my father a taste of it today.”

“A rather interesting nose with lots of fruit (pear and apricot among others), bitter herbs, minerality and rubber. On the palate, there's a very bumpy start, followed by a dip and the reappearance of a few aromas. Red apple and apricot, bitter herbs, rubber. The finish is short, but some aromas persist, including butterscotch. The empty glass is more balanced, with a woody/smoky edge. Far from uninteresting, but not the Caroni you'd dream of owning. The imbalance on the palate is what disappointed me here. Thanks Tom for the split.”

“Thanks to Tom for this beautiful split. Well, we're in Caroni territory on the nose, no doubt about it. The oily, rubbery notes are there. But the nose is a little closed, next to it is essentially wood. Then, with time, rather pleasant yellow fruit aromas develop, even if the nose remains relatively closed. On the palate, spices, yellow fruit and more "garage" notes. In the end, it's pretty good, the oil/rubber flavors not being my favorite. But on such an old rum and at such a price, one might expect a stronger, more expressive profile.”
