Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Not sure if it is the same bottle, I think Duncan Taylor produced several differents Caronis in the 16-17y. I have got the same bottle pictured by mistercoughly (cask 883).
Not much more to say, a very good Caroni with all the typical features of this kind of rum. A good alternative to the more known (and expensive- say hype ?) bottlings...
Duncan Taylor a produit plusieurs bouteilles de Caroni dans les 16-17 ans il me semble. J'ai la même que celle en photo (fût 883)
Pas grand chose de plus à ajouter que la description précédente, c'est un très bon Caroni assez typique de cette distillerie. Une bonne alternative aux bouteilles plus chères et plus à la mode du moment...
As soon as you crack open a bottle of excellent Caroni (such as this one) you are assaulted with the unmistakable aromas of lacquer, varnish, tar and tangerines. Heaven! This batch is from 1997, aged 17 years and bottled at a respectable 104 proof. More familiar flavors...old wood, new wood, pepper, bananas, licorice...tasty as all get-up. A nice long finish of menthol and smoke. Trinidad's finest.
