Caroni “Sinob” 1997 Trinidad Rum, Creative Whiskey Bottling.

Founded in 1923 Caroni was one of some 50 distilleries that were operating on the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. As the industry began to implode only 8 or so survived up into the 1950’s. A large supplier to the British Royal Navy for their rums Caroni continued Caroni-Distillery-1to operate with its native molasses as the base til 2000. By 2002 the distillery was shut down after a final sale to Angostura, the last remaining distillery in Trinidad and Tobago.

With the the exception of certain Velier, Gargano and Silver Seal bottlings it is very rare to find a Caroni rum in the market that was made from Trinidad molasses, not secondaried with additional sugar, and at its original cask strength. The higher sulfur of Trinidad soil gave the sugar cane and in turn the molasses and rum the distinctive flavor that people sought out for so many years.
