Distilled in 2000 from the last Trinidad molasses and bottled in 2012. This rum from the famous Caroni Distillery has been bottled by Italian company Velier.
As my rum journey has progressed (I hope with my assistance some of you have a smoother journey than me!) I have read a great deal about the now defunct Caroni Distillery. Caroni is famous for “Heavy Rum” and rums from the distillery can now fetch quite mind boggling prices. I have been fortunate enough to pick up both this and a 16-year-old Caroni (The Ancient Mariner) for under £50 per bottle.
