RX2560 Very good 1,164 bottles Above 250€

Indulge in the intricate flavors of the Light Trinidad Rum, a 23-year-old gem from the iconic Caroni distillery and expertly bottled by Velier. Relish its delightful aroma, a harmonious blend of molasses, rich dark chocolate, soothing cinnamon, striking tar notes, and a touch of raisins. Taste the unique blend of licorice complemented with a syrupy essence, interesting mineral notes, creamy caramel, and timeless oak. This limited-edition rum, distilled in 1982 and boasting an ABV of 59.2%, marries the sherry-like sweetness of dried fruits, vanilla, and caramel with the spicy-herbaceous notes of allspice, coffee, and chocolate. Even though it embodies a light Caroni DNA, it maintains an exquisite balance and sophistication that sets it apart. Handle a drop of water carefully - it works wonders in releasing more of the rum's intriguing flavors. Only 1164 bottles are available - experience this unparalleled rum now.

“Sehr geile Nase mit viel Sherry-Assoziationen. Ziemlich speziell, gefällt mir aber hervorragend.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Sehr süss, viel Sherry- bzw. Paxarette-Einfluss. Schwere, fast schon ölige Süsse von Trockenfrüchten, Eichenholz, Vanille und Karamell, dazu leichte Mineralik, leicht würzig-herbe Noten von Piment, Kaffee, Schokolade und etwas Mineralik - die Caroni-DNA ist nahezu inexistent. Da es sich um einen LTR-Caroni handelt, überrascht das alles nicht. Ein sehr guter Rum, aber mit Caroni im klassischen bzw. HTR-Sinne hat das wenig zu tun.”
