CDI Caroni Trinidad 1998 22yr 57,5%

RX7936 Very good Single Cask 287 bottles Above 250€
“Smoky Trinidad rum with deep complexity, yet high price tag.”

The Trinidad Caroni 1998 22-Year-Old rum, produced in Trinidad and bottled by the independent bottler Compagnie des Indes, is a limited release with only 287 bottles available. With an ABV of 57.5%, this rum is crafted from molasses and aged for 22 years. Users describe the nose as smoky, barrel, tar, iodine, and licorice, while the flavor is noted as candied, tar, metallic, peat, and toasted. While some users find it to be a good, typical Caroni with added wood and smoke and a medium finish, others consider it to be unbalanced with a surprising hint of whisky. Overall, the rum offers deep complexity but may not be everyone's cup of tea.

How does this rum taste?

A distinct Caroni with added smokey, woody notes, the Trinidad 22-year-old is intriguing, but not for everyone. Its whisky-like, peaty profile appears unique but divisive, with some users questioning the value for the high price. Complex, yet lacking the expected Caroni intensity.

“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.”

“Kein guter Caroni. Zuviel torfiges Durcheinander. Preis inakzeptabel für die Qualität.”
