Rum Nation Caroni 1999 16yr 55%

RX3193 Very good 4,480 bottles Under 250€

The Rum Nation Caroni 1999 is a limited-release gem with only 4480 bottles available. Distilled in 1999 and aged for 16 years, this Trinidadian rum boasts a robust 55% ABV. Its unique aroma features heavy notes of tar, rubber, and oak, balanced beautifully. On the palate, expect a bold blend of smoky rubber, sweet oak, and tobacco, complemented by a hint of sherry and spices. The finish is long, warm, and smoky, with lingering tobacco and oak echoes. The rum's rich, almost empireumatique essence is rounded and accessible with a touch of vanilla and subtle acidity. Ideal for enthusiasts who appreciate complexity and depth, this Caroni is both heavy and harmonious, making it a standout in any collection.

“This is definitely a heavy Caroni, but in a totally different way than the regular one. The nose has the tupivmcsl rubber and fuel and tar to it. There is also a heavy note with alcohol and tobacco and spice with a tad of sherry if you leave it to rest. The palate has some natural sweetness to it with sherry and wine. Rubber and smoky oak and tobacco follows in the next sips. The finish is extremely long and heated from the proof, at the same time heavy and with smoke and tobacco. The following day the glass is heavy with oak and smoke.”

“Nez Caroni. Les marqueurs type caoutchouc ou goudron sont là. Le rhum semble lourd, boisé, mentholé aussi. En bouche, c'est puissant. Caoutchouc, poivre. Boisé bien présent. Puis une douceur vanillée très perceptible et très agréable. Finale chaude, fumée. Du tabac apparaît. Longueur très agréable.”
