1998 Caroni 22 Year Old "Golden Devil" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Barrel Trinidad Rum (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1499789

The now defunct Caroni distillery was once one of the world's most important heavy rum producers. After the British Naval rum industry disappeared the distillery struggled to stay relevant. In 2001, the Trinidad government sold the estate to the Angostura rum company, who promptly shut the site. Even before the current rum renaissance, the Caroni distillery was prized by bottlers in Scotland like Duncan Taylor, Berry Bros, Murray McDavid and more. They've also always commanded a significant premium over similar heavy rums from the region, because the stocks are ultra-rare. But they also have a proven track record of consistently delivering an altogether unique experience, which rivals the great spirits in other categories in terms of complexity. In Europe and Japan, where these same stocks are sold under the "Kill Devil" brand, it would not be unusually to see this same rum on sale for nearly 2 times our price. So when we were offered a barrel of Caroni, from what is arguably their best modern vintage at an absolutely incredible price, we could not say no. This gorgeous heavy rum was distilled from local cane, filled into ex-bourbon barrels and aged for 22 years. Expect the classic Caroni interplay between pungent fruit and idiosyncratic savory character. The rich oily texture and never ending layers of flavor are in place just as expected. It's not funky in the same way that the Jamaican's are, but a monster nonetheless. This is a 750ml bottle, not the half size.
