This is almost word for word the same review as the 17-year Caroni, but these two are like a couple of perfect pseudo twins:

There is really nothing to say about Caroni, that hasn´t already been said. It is the best of the best of rum in my book and this 15-year from Velier is the cream of the crop.

Nose: Candied apricot, wood and turpentine
Taste: Apricot, vanilla, wood, cocoa beans, petrol, leather and turpentine
Overall: WOW! This is a limited experience as the Caroni-destillery is closed. If it is possible for you to get a taste, or even better a bottle, of this, then don´t hesitate for a second. This is simply, perfection!

No better available. I thought it's better than 17 years.

Une bouteille parfaire pour entrer dans le monde caroni ! Douceur et puissance, note pétrolifère caractéristique, bois brûlé...vraiment excellent !

Clear and Medium Amber color. .
Clean Pronounced and aromas of Burnt Sugar, Smoke, Vanilla, Tobacco and Leather.
Medium sweetness, with a Mouth-filling and Warming texture, Pronounced with flavors of Smoke, Tobacco and Meaty which lasts for a Long length and Very complex on the finish.
Very unique rum, which will only last till it last till it ends, since Caroni bought from the Trinidad government the stocks of a closed distillery left abandoned. Btw, today a bottle is worth more than a barrel back then.. a true pirate treasure found by Caroni.

Fort, beaucoup d’Esther. Une grande complexité comme pour tous les caroni

Aaahhh..... Caroni....eine delikate Leckerei !
Klares Bernstein im Glas, etwas dunkler als der 12er.
Die Nase erkennt den Caroni typischen Duft sofort.
Diese schweren gehaltvollen holzigen Erdtöne, kombiniert mit alten gewachsten Tannenmöbel die in einer verlassenen Autowerkstatt stehen. Späne von frisch gesägtem Holz liegen auf dem öligen Werkstattboden.
Im Gaumen, eine Explosion von Aromen die deine Geschmacksknospen durchdrehen lassen.
Die 52% Vol. fallen bei dieser Aroma Vielfalt nicht ins Gewicht. Gebrannter Karamell klebt an einer rauchig salzigen Fassdaube, hart, ehrlich ohne Kompromisse ! In Petroleum eingetauchte Lakritzenstangen die mit dunkler Schokolade überzogen sind. Reiner Kakao den du von einem alten modrigem Holz leckst. Könnte noch hunderte weiter aufzählen....
Der Abgang zieht sich fast über Stunden hin. Herrlich, so wie man sich das wünscht, dunkle Schokolade, dunkle Früchte, dunkles Holz und vieles mehr.
Ein absolut genialer Rum (9+) für alle die, die die alte, ehrliche Machart von Rum schätzen.
Caroni Rum, die Perlen in meiner Rumsammlung.

Aaahhh ..... Caroni .... a delicious delicacy!
Clear amber in the glass, a bit darker than the 12 yo.
The nose recognizes the Caroni typical scent immediately.
These heavy rich woody earth tones, combined with old waxed fir furniture standing in an abandoned car repair shop. Chips of freshly sawn wood lie on the oily workshop floor.
On the palate, an explosion of flavors that make your taste buds goes mad.
The 52% Vol. Are not significant for this flavor variety. Burnt caramel sticks to a smoky salty stave, hard, honest without compromise! Licorice rods dipped in petroleum and covered with dark chocolate. Pure cocoa that you lick from an old moldy wood. Could list hundreds more ....
The finish goes on for hours. Wonderful, as you would expect, dark chocolate, dark fruits, dark wood and much more.
An absolutely brilliant rum (9+) for all those who appreciate the old, honest style of rum.
Caroni Rum, the pearls in my rum collection.

My first Caroni experience. Strong, powerful. Explosion of aromas in your mouth... Quite impossible to compare with another rum styles. Not easy but really interesting. At first try I was not able to say I liked it or not but the complex, ever lasting finish gave me a pleasant feeling. More liquorice than asphalt. After some other attempts I feel like the 52% alc. is maybe a bit too much for me but the flavours and aromas are great. To be tested with a drop of water maybe ? I am very curious to taste some other Caroni's.
Edit : eventually after the sample I bought a bottle...

C'est quelque chose ces rhums Caroni ! Une vraie explosions de parfums et d'arômes dans la bouche, et ça n'en finit plus. On parle beaucoup de goudron, ce qui ne me faisait pas franchement rêver mais en fait ça me fait plus penser à la réglisse. Ce n'est vraiment pas un rhum "facile" mais il y a un goût de reviens-y assez terrible. C'est un peu trop fort pour moi quand même, il faut que je réessaye avec un tout petit peu d'eau pour calmer le degré d'alcool mais cette première expérience Caroni m'a donné envie d'en essayer d'autres.
Finalement j'en ai acheté une bouteille complète...

The strong petroleum of caroni is well recognised in this expression.

Terrific rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a super rare Caroni 15y. Very nice old school bottle and label design. Golden color. Extremely strong Trinidad influence with very solid flavor profile. Super smooth ending. Man, this was good stuff!
