Mezan Rum Trinidad Caroni 2007 70cl
All the way from Trinidad comes this 2007 vintage rum, distilled by Caroni and bottled by Mezan. Caroni has a fascinating history: originally operating a cast iron still and then in 1945 a caopper still was introduced, which then followed a single column in 1957 and a four column Gerb Herman in 1980. The distillery closed in 2002 soon after this was produced, leaving only one distillery on the island, and this would have been produced in their column still.
The nose consists widely of fresh zingy coconut and tobacco leaf notes with toasted oak and citrus undertones. On the palate, notes of lemongrass,capsicum and fresh black pepper. These roll into a light spicy flavour with honey and oak on the finish.Read more...
