Default The Rum Quest

I have a friend who is on a quest to find out more about two old bottles of Caroni Rum he has. He has just started his website, so any help, info, photos, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Please ask Dean Reeve to post his progress on this site. I for one, tend to discount third party information and website promotion on this site.

Caroni Rum has always been one of my desires, but has managed to elude me so far. I know a couple of small companies that have bought stocks of their rum for resale and that the Caroni website still offers rum for sale in bulk. Maybe I should buy some for resale too!!

Caroni was a fascinating place to see and it was sad to see it close. The rums were flavorful and well blended. I've still got a couple of bottles of their Old Cask rum that I bought the last year that the distillery was operating. White Magic was a great white rum and at about $3.50 a bottle was hard to beat for a rum costing several times that in the islands.

Another rum relegated to the archives.
