Velier Caroni Heavy Trinidad Rum HTR 1985 20yr 62%

RX5905 Very good Single Cask 924 bottles Above 250€
“Well-balanced, fruity, with hints of caramel and mild medicinal note.”

The Heavy Trinidad Rum HTR from Caroni, bottled by Velier, offers a unique experience. Distilled in 1985 and aged for 20 years, this limited-edition rum (only 924 bottles) balances rich notes of dried fruit, tar, vanilla, caramel, and woody aromas. On the palate, the flavors of roasted elements, tar, and dried fruit are complemented by vanilla and caramel. This rum is praised for its well-balanced profile and medium fruity sweetness with a hint of chocolate. Though it lacks some typical Caroni intensity and complexity, it stands out with its sweetness and touches of rye-like character. Ideal for collectors and aficionados who appreciate nuanced and mature rums, this HTR rum is both an intriguing and enjoyable choice.

“#4220 19.08.2023 we had our yearly meeting among old friends. When we do this once a year its without partners, cellphones and other gadgets. Just some nice rums, a piece of paper and a pen and most fun of all, a blind tasting. The theme of 2023 was Caroni and we had a great time and spend no less then 10 hours talking and tasting. Now this is a nice rum. It doesn't have all the Caroni notes but it's really well balanced. Medium fruity with a nice touch of caramel. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has some chocolate and a light medicinal note.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: An der Nase zunächst etwas unspektakulär - zwar sind herbe und durchaus auch ein paar dreckige HTR-typische Noten zu erkennen, insbesondere ist hier aber die schwere Süsse von Paxarette in Kombination mit dem Fass präsent. Am Gaumen erneut schöne Eichenholz-Einflüsse mit vanilliger Karamellsüsse, herben Würzaromen von Pfeffer, dunkler Schokolade und etwas Kaffee, ehe sich im Hintergrund auch wieder die Teerassoziationen zeigen. Ein interessanter HTR, der definitiv nicht zur Spitzenklasse des Marques gehört, aber dennoch eine interessante Abfüllung hervorbringt. Insgesamt wirkt das 1985er Batch etwas trockener als das aus 1982.”

“Dégustation des Caronis Velier 1985. Un nez où le goudron léger se marie avec des notes de blé torréfié. Des pommes suries et du cèdre. La bouche manque un peu d’intensité en premier, puis de beaux arômes arrivent qui redescendent assez vite. La finale n’est clairement pas assez longue pour un Caroni. Il y a des notes d’atelier mécanique mais plutôt faibles. Le verre vide laisse apparaître des fruits dont un étonnant fruit du cacaoyer qu’on ne sentait pas en bouche et l’atelier mécanique y est plus prononcé.”
