“Rich, complex Caroni with fruity, menthol notes and a spicy kick.”

The 4th Employees Basdeo „Dicky“ Ramsarran HTR is a 20-year-old rum by Velier, originating from the Caroni distillery in Trinidad. Produced with molasses and bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 64.3%, this limited release boasts only 1,251 bottles. With a remarkable nose of menthol, oak, rubber, elegance, and mildness, it transitions to a flavorful palate characterized by menthol, wood, alcohol, tar, and caramel.

With a lingering finish, the 4th employees could be your perfect match for a cigar pairing.

“On the nose, freshness and menthol. Nice dirty caroni notes, nougat and then very fruity, mango and passion fruit. The long time in the barrel shows mainly through various spices.In the mouth a lot of nougat and wood. The finish is surprisingly short.Despite the pronounced Caroni notes and the 64% rather tame. Nougat, lots of menthol and lots of fruit.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: In der Nase erwartet uns eine auffällige Fruchtigkeit, die sich zunehmend mit Caroni-typischen Noten von Gummi, Teer und etwas Karamell vereint. Am Gaumen paaren sich die vorgenannten Aromen mit einer reichhaltigen Mentholnote, auch der hohe Alkoholgehalt kommt zum Tragen, etwas Oxidation ist zu empfehlen. Insgesamt auf sehr hohem Caroni-Niveau, was exquisite Qualität verspricht (die tropisch gelagerten Abfüllungen stellen nunmal eine Liga für sich dar). Wer mit derlei Abfüllungen den Weg zu Caroni findet, ist auf einem beneidenswert hochqualitativem Pfad unterwegs.”

“Uhh, this is an exciting Caroni. On the nose I smell menthol, spruce, essential oils. In the mouth, the aroma is omnipresent. I feel reminded of a cold candy. When inhaled, the mouth is downright chilled. At first, I found the rum too one-sided, because not much was happening except menthol. But after half an hour in the glass, I taste again - and discover a completely different rum. Much more complex, the spruce is barely present. If I didn't know better, I could swear I had an unusual Uitvlugt in the glass.”
