About the Caroni 1998 Special Edition 4th Release Balas ‘Brigade’ Bhaggan

The Caroni Distillery on the Caribbean island of Trinidad was a famous producer of heavy rums in the 20th century, but the island’s sugar-growing industry collapsed and the distillery was shut down in 2002. Luckily, while on a research trip in Trinidad, Luca Gargano discovered a large stock of vintage rum barrels in the distillery’s old warehouses. His bottling company Velier started releasing the famous rum. This high-proof rum is part of the Caroni Employees series, which is dedicated to the employees who spent many years at the distillery before it closed. It was distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2020 at 68.4%. Caroni 1998 Special Edition 4th Release features Balas “Brigade” Bhaggan, who worked at the Caroni Distillery for 14 years. Only 1158 bottles of Caroni 1998 Special Edition 4th Release Balas ‘Brigade’ Bhaggan have been released.
