Caroni 12 yo 100% Trinidad

 

caroni 12

The Rum: Caroni 12 yo

Origin: Trinidad

Distilled: 2000

Bottled : 2012 at 50 abv

 

Nose: starting rather alcoholic with some notes reminding of cognac. Heavy molasses with a hint of tar (asphalt) and vanilla. Dusty notes slowly making room for fresher fruity notes (dry raisins)

 

Taste: again rather alcoholic. Not too sweet, but with a lot of wood influence.  Smoky notes that are so typical for Caroni.

 

Finish: Nice wood influences, refined bitter taste. The medium long to long finish slowly gets sweeter on the lips; but always with a bit of a strange metallic taste playing in the background.

 

 

Our Score: 15/20

Remarks: This is actually a piece of history in the glass, since this is the very last Caroni that was actually made with Trinidad molasses
