Decadent Drinks 1997 Caroni Trinidad Sponge Edition 25yo 60% 700ml information

Introducing the Decadent Drinks 1997 Caroni Trinidad Sponge Edition, a 25-year-old rum blend that is a true rarity with only 95 bottles released. This exceptional rum is the result of blending two casks from 1997, one from Jamaica's Clarendon distillery and the other from the legendary Caroni distillery in Trinidad. Each rum was aged for at least 20 years in the tropics before being transferred to Scotland and aged for an additional 5 years.

The final blend was then reduced to 60% ABV and bottled in a stunning hand-blown glass bottle, exclusive to Decadent Drinks' special cuvées. The enigmatic name "Clarendoni" represents the perfect union of two distinct distilleries, Clarendon and Caroni, resulting in a powerful palate that combines exotic fruit pulp, tar, iodine, and high esters.

This one-of-a-kind rum offers a unique balance of Jamaican funk and the tarry leather character of Caroni, creating a complex and highly distinctive flavor profile that is both intense and deeply satisfying. With only 95 bottles produced, this special edition is not to be missed by serious rum connoisseurs. Decadent Drinks has masterfully bottled a rare gem with this blend, demonstrating the brand's commitment to uniqueness and quality. Don't miss the opportunity to experience the harmony and depth of this rare blend.
