CARONI EMPLOYEES 4th Release 2000 Basdeo “Dicky” Ramsarran 64,3%
Dedicated to Basdeo “Dicky” Ramsarran, who worked at the distillery for 20 years, this small batch of six casks aged entirely in Trinidad & Tobago is one of the youngest vintages of this legendary distillery which closed in 2002. With an angels’ share almost as high as 80%, in every way, in terms of both aromas and flavours, this version takes pains to express the empyreumatic style so characteristic of Caroni. Nonetheless, avoiding caricature at all costs, it is also very exotic (mango), chocolate, spicy, floral and fruity (raspberry). A fan of long-haul travel, it takes us to the banks of the Ciron to admire the botrysized vineyards of Sauternes.
