Caroni 1998/2015 17yo 110 Proof 55%. This rum was bottled in 2015 from 1998 casks, showcasing Trinidad’s rich rum tradition. With a larger batch release compared to other Velier Caroni versions, it offers a glimpse into the past with a label echoing the original 1940s Caroni bottles.
This 17-year-old Caroni stands out as a highlight of the range, impressing enthusiasts and earning the title of the best release. The renowned Caroni Distillery, famous for its heavy rums, closed in 2002 due to Trinidad’s changing industry landscape.
Rum expert Luca Gargano, CEO of Velier, rediscovered Caroni’s vintage rum barrels during a research trip, preserving its legacy. Velier now holds most of Caroni’s remaining stock, occasionally treating aficionados to sought-after bottlings, keeping the heritage alive.
