Trinidad 1991/2012 – DT cask #2467
The Rum: Trinidad Single Cask 2467 20 yo – 54,8 abv
Origin: Trinidad – The Trinidad Rum Distillery
Distilled: 1991 – column still
Bottled: 2012, by Duncan Taylor. 298 bottles only
Nose: soft and pleasant nose with vanilla – nice influence of the American oak. Soft spices, bananabread, toasted bread and soft brown sugar
Taste: rather sweet and alcoholic with dried fruits and fruit candy. Also some almonds and bitter chocolate
Finish: more bitter now, with more oak. Dry and peppery; medium long.
Our score : *** excellent start with the nose, typical quality rum; but the finish has let me down a bit. The wood becomes to overpowering and camouflages the sweetness of the rum.
