Experience an unmatched voyage of flavors with a set of three artisanal magnums, each encasing single cask rums from the fabled Caroni distillery of Trinidad. In honor of the septuagenarian milestone of the famed Italian importer, Velier, these exquisite rums bring forward a synthesis of unrivaled quality and distinct taste profiles. With their limited availability, these rums are a symbol of opulence and rarity.
An unparalleled gem with merely 109 bottles in circulation, this 23-year-old rum entices with hints of rubber, tar, and caramel. Crafted by Velier, its flavor profile reveals a potent blend of rubber and tar, enlivened by nuances of vanilla and mint.
Distilled in 1996, this blend has matured into a rich tapestry of vanilla, coconut, and pastry aromas. With its cask strength and a release of only 104 bottles, its palate offers creamy notes of vanilla, complemented by the warmth of milk chocolate and the tropical touch of coconut.
Another masterpiece from 1996, this heavy rum, bottled at a robust 64,3% ABV, boasts of only 119 bottles. Its bouquet offers a delicate mix of vanilla, leather, and caramel, with the palate showcasing a dance of vanilla, aged oak, and a whisper of fruity undertones.
The allure of this trilogy goes beyond their refined taste. As whispers of these bottles spread among enthusiasts, they have swiftly become the Holy Grail for rum collectors worldwide. Their limited circulation, combined with the illustrious history of the Caroni distillery and Velier’s reputation, has made them objects of intense desire. The hunt for these bottles is fierce, as collectors vie to own a piece of rum history, ensuring their place not only in distinguished bars but also in the annals of rum legacy.
