That Boutique-y Rum Company Caroni 20 Year Old 50cl
The famed Caroni Distillery closed in 2002 and brought with it the end of ‘heavy’ rum production in Trinidad. The ever-dwindling stocks have become ever more desirable for collectors and Rum enthusiasts alike. Such heavy iconic Rum is generally left in the original casks, and released untouched, but at Boutique-y Rum HQ, they couldn’t help but wonder what Caroni would taste like if it spent a spell in a peaty whisky cask.
