Butterscotch. Overripe tangerines. Burning tires and melting plastic. Yep, you guessed it...Caroni.

I love this rum. It's 19 yo, single-barrel, unfiltered and uncolored. Distilled in Trinidad, bottled in Scotland. First, it's been correctly offered at 116 proof (Mezan, are you listening?). The aroma is just mesmerizing: imagine a bakery kitchen full of freshly-made treacle. Now imagine that kitchen on fire due to faulty wiring. That's the smell you want when you nose a Caroni, and this monster gives you all that and more. The flavor is positively perfection. Molasses, brown sugar, sweet acetone and airplane glue. If you've never been lucky enough to enjoy a good Caroni you may think I'm kidding about the solvents, but it's not so. Top-notch Caronis, such as this one, offer a unique rum-tasting experience unlike any other. There are other rums from Trinidad, Angostura being the most popular, but there will never be anything like the rums produced in the now-defunct Caroni sugar factory. Straight up all the way.
