Velier Caroni Blended Trinidad Rum 1985 15yr 49,5%

RX6545 Very good 2,262 bottles Above 250€

The Blended Trinidad Rum from Caroni, selected by Velier, is a distinct limited release. Distilled in 1985 and aged for 15 years, this rum offers a complex profile with a unique nutty, vegetal, and menthol aroma. The palate is rich with notes of caramel, milk chocolate, and oak, complemented by fruity undertones and green pepper. Descriptions highlight a silky mouthfeel and a blend of both sweet and earthy flavors, with hints of freshly unpacked tire tubing and mechanics workshop adding intrigue. The warm, long finish features roasted wood and toffee. Though atypical for Caroni, this Caroni rum is praised for its quality and depth, despite its slightly lower ABV. Ideal for collectors and connoisseurs alike.

“Dégustation des Caronis Velier 1985. Un nez sombre, doux, amer et frais tout à la fois. Du caramel brûlé et du végétal (de la menthe en particulier) viennent compléter ce nez. L’attaque est soyeuse en bouche tout en apportant une explosion d’arômes. Tout est dit : profondeur, complexité, fraîcheur et bois parfaitement intégré. Des fruits cuits en fin de bouche avec de la pomme au four et de la banane. Une finale sur le caramel et le végétal, les fruits sont perceptibles jusqu’à l’extrême fin. L’atelier mécanique domine le verre vide. Un rhum splendide malgré son ABV un peu faible.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Sehr gefälliges Profil, das einerseits LTR-typische, angenehme Holznoten und Süsse aufweist, andererseits aber auch dem HTR-Stil Referenz erweist mit Teer- und herb-adstringierenden Fass- und Würzanklängen am Gaumen und im Abgang. Süffiger Caroni, dem aber die letzte Komplexität fehlt.”

“11.05.2008 Sanya in China is what Mallorca and Ibiza is to the Europeans. A beautiful place with long sandy beaches and mostly 5 star hotels. Notes. Very light in colour with a strong nutty precense. Oily palate with caramel and chocolate as well as light roasted wood. Oily palate with a long and warm finish. Caroni notes missing and only very light fruit in the profile.”
