Caroni Replica 90 Proof

51.4% abv

Bottled to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Caroni distillery, La Maison du Whisky and Velier have teamed up for this limited-edition rum. Matured in Trinidad for 18 years, this is a fruity run with aromas of ripe banana, dried apricots and cloves. The palate offers notes of camphor, linden, pineapple, passion fruit, gooseberry and gentle bonfire smoke. This rum is presented in a traditional Caroni bottle, complete with a replica of the historic original label of 1940s Caroni rum.

Located in the heart of Trinidad's Caroni plains, Caroni was established in 1918 as a single estate distillery and possessed its own sugar plant. Initially equipped with a cast iron pot still, which was replaced by single and column stills over the years, Caroni became infamous for producing a very distinctive heavy style of rum.

In 2004, just a year after the distillery closed, Italian raconteur Luca Gargano visited Trinidad for a photo shoot and came across the boarded-up distillery by chance. He then learned the location of its warehouse, full of Caroni barrels – Luca couldn’t believe his luck! Over the next few years the barrels were purchased, its contents bottled and released.

As word slowly got out, 'Caronimania' began to take hold and in recent years bottlings have been frantically sought after by fans and collectors.
