The Duchess Caroni Trinidad HTR 1998 20yr 64,6%

RX882 Very good Single Cask 288 bottles Above 250€

The "Trinidad HTR" by The Duchess is a premium Caroni rum, distilled in 1998 and aged for 20 years. Characterized by an ABV of 64.6%, this limited release impresses with just 288 bottles available. On the nose, it reveals complex notes of rubber, wood, vanilla, medicinal hints, and tar. The palate offers an intriguing combination of rubber, earthy undertones, peppery and spicy notes, and dried fruits. Users appreciate its light nose, warmth, and crisp sweetness. While the alcohol presence is notable, the rum opens up beautifully with time, revealing more fruity and less technical profiles. This rum is perfect for enthusiasts looking for a robust yet refined Caroni experience.

“Solid Caroni. After 30 minutes of breathing it opens, but the alcohol remains present. Relatively sweet and "crisp" on the palate. Fun.”

“Not a bad release and the price at release is not too bad in my mind. Light on the nose and warm on the palate. Some may say spicy on the palate but I like it. The dried fruit and vanilla becomes the overall profile very well in my mind.”

“Ve vůni mi přijde jemnější než předchozí Duchess Caroni, s menší porcí techničnosti, ale i tak voní moc pěkně. Chuťově nápodobně. Více ovoce, méně techničnosti. V závěru se ale na povrch dere gumovost. Dobré a zajímavé.”
