Spring Spirits is a company owned by Manuel Wouters, who is famous in Belgium as the bartender of the Sips bar in Antwerp, one of the first and still one of the leading cocktail bars of Belgium. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the bar, he approached The Whisky Jury and selected this Caroni rum, a 1998 vintage with 12 years of tropical ageing and 11 more years on the continent.

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten ( 90/100

Nose: menthol, liquorice, eucalyptus, hints of cigar leaves and humidors. Hints of juniper and metal polish. Pencil shavings. It’s certainly not the most diesel-y / phenolic Caroni, this feels more rounded and balanced, with hints of nutty biscuits and raisins in the background.

Mouth: more punchy now, with lots of (salty) liquorice, spearmint and herbal (almost medicinal) notes. Hints of tar and plastics. Rather oak-driven, but there’s also well-overripe pineapple and a hint of citrus, as well as sultanas in the background. Some camphor and mint extract too.

Finish: very long, with earthy notes, herbs and drying cedar wood.

By Caroni standards this is quite a rounded, balanced rum, with some petrol and varnish but also a series of sweeter notes. A perfect choice for a bar. I believe you can purchase a bottle at Spis or their restaurant Mill-Hill.
