“Everything I love in a rum! I can't imagine a world without Caroni!I dread to think how good the vintages from the 80s must be! I know Velier is trying to reconstruct the still by interviewing everyone who had worked at the distillery.”

“This one beats both the 12 and 15 year versions by far. A true Caroni from the nose to the finish. The alcohol is almost too dominant so I added a few drops of water which also released a lot of extra flavours after resting for 15 minutes. The nose is typical Caroni with rubber, polish and fruits mixed with vanilla. The palate continues with the rubber and clearly charred barrel as well as fruit and spices. The finish is long and also has the rubber and burnt/charred barrel to it.”
