Caroni Kill Devil (The Whisky Barrel) HTR 1998 23yr 62,1%

RX9709 Very good Single Cask 247 bottles Above 250€
“Smoky, well-balanced, slightly dry, with subtle wood and spice.”

The Kill Devil (The Whisky Barrel) HTR from the Caroni distillery in Trinidad offers a unique tasting experience with its 23 years of aging and 62.1% ABV. Users frequently highlight its distinctive smoky and tar notes, with undertones of rubber and bitter orange on the nose. On the palate, the flavors of tar, tobacco, and dark vanilla dominate, creating a dry and complex profile. The smoky character is particularly pronounced, an element that sets it apart from other Caroni rums. While some find it less complex, its unique smoke and continental aging make it enjoyable. Ideal for those who appreciate a strong, smoky rum with hints of traditional Caroni elements. Limited release with only 247 bottles available.

“Ein etwas ungewöhnlicher Caroni. Am Anfang viel Alkohol, der nicht so gut eingebunden ist, dann leichte Holznoten, Rauch, wenig typische Caroni-Noten, etwas Vanille. Abgang erstaunlich kurz.”
