1998 Caroni 23 Year Old "Golden Devil" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Barrel Trinidad Rum (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1524620

The Beast of Trinidad is back. Caroni has remained essentially a secret outside of the rum community for some time now, but with the collective interest in the world's great spirits reaching a fever pitch, the broader booze hounding community is realizing the majesty and intensity that the old heavy rum from Trinidad can exhibit. It seems that the 98s are of particular importance, and our good friends at Golden Devil have managed to acquire a significant lot. This is the second barrel we've had in as many years, but there simply isn't any way to fully understand the prowess of this special rum without experiencing it first hand. Exactly how the pungent character of the heavy Caroni was achieved is not completely clear. The old distillery, founded in the early 1910s, had multiple stills. The heaviest rums seem to have come off one of their column stills, and that's likely the case here. The Caroni story is long and complicated, but the closure and subsequent explosion in interest has created a huge demand from collectors and connoisseurs worldwide. Expect the classic Caroni heavy flavor profile offering diesel fumes, pungent spice, redolent of overripe fruit and mineral oils. Powerful, smoky, and idiosyncratic. Unfortunately, stocks are low and prices are high. These casks represent the very finest value on the market, and while some might say Caroni is "an acquired taste," it's impossible to acquire without tasting it. Now is your chance!
