Bristol Classic Rum Caroni Trinidad 1996
Bristol // Trinidad & Tobago
Distilled by Caroni in Trinidad in 1996 this rum was aged in used oak casks until 2011. It was then transferred into port casks for an additional two years, before being bottled in the United Kingdom. Agitating the liquid creates a thick band around the glass with equally thick legs that descent slowly down the glass. As the ring evaporates is leaves thick pebbles around the side.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

"The aroma reveals smokey oak, dark chocolate with strawberry, dried orange peel, and black tea. The first sip of the rum enters with the charred oak tannins front and center. Sweet vanilla whispers around the edges while strawberry and cranberry forms the mid-line. The char forms the baseline where the dark chocolate and black tea notes from the aroma manifest. A nip of tar hits the tongue as the flavors culminates into a lightly acidic and dry finish."
