For this release, twenty three Caroni experts gathered in Cognac on 12th April 2019 to sample the final barrels of stock imported from Trinidad and Guyana. They selected 22 casks to be blended, all embodying the range of styles from the lost distillery including heavy and lighter column still rums.
This is a very special bottling and the penultimate to be released, concluding Velier's stock acquired shortly after the distillery closed.
All the rums for this blend were distilled in 1996 and aged on the Trinidad archipelago until 2008, before being moved to Distillers Ltd in Guyana for the final maturation. During that time, the angel’s share claimed 85% of the liquid, concentrating and creating an exuberant spirit.
