This rum Caroni Giuseppe Begnoni 1996 Single Cask R3719 is one of the very special value aged rums. The last bottles in circulation are sought after by collectors and connoisseurs around the world.
Today we can talk about the myth of "Caroni", a state distillery on the Island of Trinidad founded in 1923 and closed in 2002 due to the decline of the sugar industry in Trinidad. With its closure, the world is deprived of its heavy rums, with high ester content and the petroleum flavors so characteristic of Caroni rums.
Luca Gargano, president of the Italian trader Velier, fortunately discovered two years after the closure of the distillery, large stocks of the legendary Caroni rum, thus offering us exceptional releases.
That's what you will discover with this Caroni 1996 Single Cask R3719 rum, bottled by Velier in 260 numbered copies, exclusively for the legendary Italian whiskey collector, Giuseppe Begnoni. Distilled in 1996, this heavy rum was aged for 20 years on the island of Trinidad before being bottled at 70.7%, without reduction or additives, from Single Cask #R3719.
This Caroni Giuseppe Begnoni Single Cask n°R3719 is therefore a real treasure, which offers lovers of vintage rums an unforgettable taste experience and a rare opportunity to discover the history and heritage of the Caroni distillery.
