Caroni Music! Series 3 x 70cl / Wealth Solutions

A rare collection of Caroni rum, bottled by Wealth Solutions and titled the Music! Series. The three bottles have been named after three different genres of music popular around the Caribbean.

Established in 1923 on the site of the sugar factory for which it was named, Caroni was a key ingredient of British Navy rations, where it's famous high ester 'Heavy' rums help to make up the signature flavour. Sadly, with the decline of the Trinidadian sugar industry, the Islands distillers became more and more dependent upon imported molasses, making distilling less and less economical. The writing then, was already on the wall when in 2001 the Trinidadian government sold a 49% share in the holding company to Angostura. Caroni was shuttered in 2002 and a Behemoth of flavour was lost to the world.

  • Caroni 1996 Parang 20 Year Old 63.5% 70cl - one of 242 bottles
  • Caroni 1998 Soca 20 Years Old 69.3% 70cl - one of 215 bottles.
  • Caroni 1998 Calypso 20 Years Old 63.8% 70cl - one of 220 bottles.
