TRINIDAD 2005


Vintage series 2019

Description


This vintage was distilled in 2005 in a four column still at Trinidad Distillers, and has been aged 11 years in Trinidad, then matured 2-3 years in Ferrand casks.

Rising fruit notes create a citrus explosion of lemon and pear, followed by grilled almond, popcorn and paprika. It is a fresh and floral rum, perfect as an after diner drink.

The label depicts a plantation where oxen pull a plow through the earth to remember that Trinidad was an important land for sugar cane cultivation before rum was introduced. The Frieze highlights a red ibis, symbol of the island of Trinite also present on the coat of arms of Trinidad and Tobago.
