Caroni 17 Year Old Trinidad rum 55%

Between Guyana, Venezuela and Barbados lies the country of Trinidad and Tobago, which as suggested consists of two islands, of which Trinidad is the absolute largest. Columbus set foot on Trinidad in the last year of the 15th century and the islands have since been under both Spanish and British rule. Today, the country is an independent republic with a strong culture - a culture that, among other things, has given the world the calypso! Along Trinidad's old main thoroughfare Southern Main Road lay the distillery Caroni from 1918 until it was closed at the beginning of the new millennium. The distillery's aged rum is powerful, dry, well - balanced with woody and spicy notes and a bit of chocolate towards the end.
