Ma dernière découverte.
Une puissance à la première sensation qui persiste jusqu'à la fin.
Donne envie d'aller tester les millésimes plus anciens.

"One Piece"! Like the comics of Eiichiro Oda.
I'm talking about a comics of incredible, phantasmagorical and flaky pirates. The first time I've drunk this RVM, I've had indeed the sensation that the pirates' RVM was exaclty like Caroni.
Maybe the 50° that don't dominate the flavor, maybe the big structure or the striking copper colored or the salty taste with scent of earth, perhaps the simplicity of the bottle, but these are alls factors that make Caroni an amazing, evocative RVM.

I know it should not be done, but if it's possible, late in the evening, close your eyes and try to drink it directly to the bottle...

With its 50%, 100proof profile, this thing will kick you in the nuts ever so gently. No sugar, no color, just a punch in the mouth. This is just lovely!

This heavy rum was distilled in 2000 from the last Trinidad molasses and bottled in 2012. Golden to light brown colour. Nosing reveals smell of sweet alcohol and a oaked profile which borders on slightly musty. Palate has a very dry profile. It is quite hot, oily and spicy (white pepper with a little ginger and nutmeg) and it has a very long oaked finish with very little sweetness.

Oily, smoky, and full of fruity notes. This one is a pretty heavy rum that is tasty. Of course no additives. The spirit of Trinidad in a gorgeous bottle.

... yes indeed! If someone asks me how a good rum should taste - here it is! It is rough and pleasant at the same time.

Anderledes Rom end jeg er vant til - er meget positivt overrasket - smager af gummi/fad noter brænder lidt på tungen uden at være for meget

Not a rhum for anyone. I had my bottle in the cabinet for 6 months, just sipping one drop form time to time. Not my usual agricole. At all.

Strong and direct.
You need to get used with the tar, naphta, rubble and licorice aromas. If you can do that, you'll find a little treasure. These nose notes aren't predominant... nevertheless they are present and give this rum personality.

Give it more than a chance.
