CARONI 17 ans


Started in 1918, the state distillery of Trinidad Caroni, had its own sugar factory to ensure its supply of local sugar cane. In particular, until 2002 she developed “heavy rums” with a remarkable and singular style. Only rarely producing bottlings under its own label, the distillery has long remained the prerogative of a few connoisseurs. Its closure, decided by the Trinidadian government in 2002, only accentuated the aura of its rums. In 2004, the discovery of hundreds of barrels stored in Trinidad gave rise to the joint purchase by the companies Velier and La Maison du Whiskey of the Caroni stock and the bottling of a few cult vintages, offered in limited editions, as well as the Caroni 12 years old, new and historical version.

In line with the 12 and 15-year-old versions, this 17-year-old Caroni is distinguished by its “petroleum” character, which is lighter and more subtle than the usual Caroni. Ample and generous, this Heavy Rum delights our nose with its exoticism and the sweetness of its woodiness. Bottled in 2015 after 17 years spent in bourbon barrels in a tropical climate, it coats our taste buds with honeyed and floral notes. Graduating 55 degrees, this Caroni, which had an angel share of more than 70%, seems to have reached perfect maturity.
