Get ready for an epic journey, packed into a bottle with the Tasting Gang Caroni, straight from the respected house of Velier. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill rum. It’s the Caroni Tasting Gang 23 yo, a one-of-a-kind blend hailing from the iconic Caroni distillery, right at the heart of Trinidad.
This unique rum tells a special story of the last barrels of light and heavy rums, chosen with care by Luca Gargano and the Tasting Gang, a group of 23 Caroni lovers with a passion for rum. Distilled in 1996 and aged until 2008 under Trinidad’s tropical climate, the barrels then traveled to Guyana at DDL for further maturation until they were bottled in 2019. As the 38th release, with only 5083 bottles in existence, this is a rare gem in the world of rum.
As soon as you open the bottle, you’re greeted by a beautiful aroma of vanilla, barrel, coconut, pastries, and tar. Take a sip and your palate will be flooded with a complex array of flavours – woody, vanilla, orange, smoky, and toasted notes. A harmonious blend of Caroni and Barbade rums, this rum will appeal to beginners and seasoned rum drinkers alike.
Its impressive quality is affirmed by an 8.7/10 rating on the RumX platform, which reflects its fantastic reputation among rum lovers.
