The Whisky Jury TDL 2003

19 yo / 62.7%

Region: Trinidad & Tobago
Cask: Refill barrel

Scoring: 90/100

Nose: starts seemingly easy and rounded, with a big dose of maple syrup, ripe bananas and hints of caramel. Then after five minutes it gets increasingly juicy, with beautiful hints of red vineyard peaches, mangoes and pink grapefruits. Hints of lychee, floral honey and cane sugar juice as well.

Mouth: a similar tropical fruitiness, with bergamot, mango and (tinned) peaches again. This time some oak spice is added. A salty touch and maybe a hint of petrol, but this is certainly not as funky and estery as Caroni. Later also hints of liquorice, aniseed and clove.

Finish: long, half sweet, half spicy, on caramel and drops of medicinal potions, as well as flashes of maracuya.

Less industrial than Caroni, but pretty great nonetheless. Good complexity, lovely tropical fruits and high drinkability. As Caroni became too expensive, TDL now deserves our attention. Excellent selection
