Bristol Classic Rum
Finest Caroni Trinidad 1998
15 Years Old
“Quorhum 15 Anos Solera” the first thing that should jump out at you is the word “Solera.” This means that the casks are never fully emptied — rather a portion of the Rum from the previous batch is left in the cask and new spirit is added.
This means that the age statement — in this case fifteen years — is the youngest Rum in the bottle and there are undoubtedly some very old portions of Rum in there as well.
So even though this Rum is listed as a very respectable fifteen years old, it tastes even older than that.
