From the legendary closed distillery in Trinidad, these bottles are very rare and sought after by collectors worldwide! Caroni rums are notable for their distinctive heavy profile with aromas of oil and tar, this bottling is no exception to the rule!
Nose: 100% Caroni with notes of hot tar, slightly peated and malted, and liquorice (ZAN), but also easier notes of patchouli, rose and geranium.
Mouth: Sweet and fruity like a mirabelle clafouti then quickly evolving to BBQ aromas, peat, and toast.
Finish: It feels like having licked the asphalt after an American muscle car. It?s long, very long lasting and heavy, the bitterness and the spices are also very present.
Compagnie des Indes rums are produced with great care and elegance. The idea was brought to life in memory of the former East India Company from the seventeenth and eighteenth century that selected rare commodities from distant continents and imported them to their countries. Like them, we select only the best qualities of rum from all over the world and import these to Europe. No matter if we speak about single casks or carefully selected blends we always focus on bringing out the character and qualities of each local origin. Florent from Compagnie des Indes roams the world constantly and amazes us with his Rum discoveries. One feels he does it for his own pleasure because his selections have in common, elegance, lightness, naturalness, and authenticity. What rum always should have been, but rarely is nowadays, inflated by suspicious aromas and colours.
