“Bold, leathery Caroni with spicy, woodsy twist; surprisingly fruity undertones.”

The 1998 Caroni rum is a well-regarded limited release from the Caroni distillery, hailing from Trinidad and bottled by the independent bottler, The Auld Alliance - Corman Collins. Distilled from molasses with a Column Still and aged for 21 years, this particular expression has an ABV of 61% and is only available in 232 bottles. With a distinctive Caroni profile, users describe its aroma as a blend of rubber, leather, tropical fruit, vanilla, and tar. Its flavor features rubber, tar, tropical fruit, dryness, and menthol. While some users found the alcohol integration less polished, community members agreed that it's a noteworthy rum, showcasing unique traits such as its fruit-forward aspects and rather smooth character for a Caroni rum.

“all the typical markers are present, just not as complex or brute as other representatives from the house. I attribute this to the fact that he spent a large part of his maturity in a continental climate. Overall, quite round and rather 'fruit-driven' for a Caroni.”
