Summary

The Trinidad rum is a limited release from the Caroni distillery in Trinidad, bottled by Compagnie des Indes. It was distilled in 1998 and aged for 22 years before being bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 57.5%. It has a smoky, peaty flavor due to its time spent in whisky barrels and is generally well-liked but some find it too bitter and unbalanced.

A pretty good Caroni but the price does not match the quality. I know the Caroni barrels are running out, but still the price is too high in my mind. Typical Caroni with added wood and smoke and a medium finish.

Nose feels tied up and while it is quite intensive, there is not too much expression to it. Same holds true overall. There are just not as many layers as you are used to in a (good) Caroni.

Gutes, typisches 98er Profil.

Zu Beginn wirkte der Rum auf mich sehr unausgewogen: die Nase ist verheißungsvoll mit kräftigem Caroniprofil und Süße aber im Mund dominieren Bitterstoffe und Holz. Blind könnte man meinen einen Islay Whisky vor sich zu haben (Ardbeg lässt grüßen!). Der Abgang ist ewig lang und wird auch von Eiche und Bitterstoffen dominiert. Hat man sich daran gewöhnt, wirkt der Rum harmonischer und weitere Aromen blitzen auf.

Große Überraschung, Caroni meets Whisky? Neben eindeutigen Caroni-Noten eine enorm rauchige, torfige Note, die im Abgang ein röstig-malziges Aroma hinterlässt. Braucht man das, bei einem Caroni für >300€? Meine klare Meinung: Nein! Unabhängig des großen Namens und des Preises trotzdem ein mehr als ordentlicher Rum, der mit tollen Aromen und tiefer Komplexität aufwartet.

ich bin einfach kein Caroni Fan, dieser ist keine Ausnahme, mir persönlich zu dreckig und metallisch. desweiteren hätte ich mir gewünscht vorher zu wissen dass der Rum die Hälfte der Zeit in Whisky Fässern lag, was natürlich das torfig rauchige erheblich verstärkt. für Fans klassischer dreckiger caronis aber dennoch eine Bereicherung.
