This is a solid, strong flavoured Caroni. Vanilla, fruits, and the famous Caroni oils. Thank God not spoiled by sweeteners, it is a true Rum with a capital R. Solidly great!

Lækker tør rom med masser at brændt gummi lakrids og røg....

Enjoyed a glass of Bristol Spirits Caroni 1996 Trinidad edition in Key West FL. Very dry and mildly woody to the nose, much dryer and more woody to the throat. Strong afterburn. There's no sugar at all on this rum, so its very hard to even classify this one as rum.

As other reviewers have noted, this is a good Caroni for people that otherwise don't care for Caroni.

Smells and tastes of charred oak, caramel, bourbon, spice, and tar. A nice rum from Caroni!

Dejlig rom som ikke er tilsat sukker - har en god eftersmag som holder ved

Dufter af brændt gummi og opløsningsmidler. Typisk whisky duft.
Smagen er fuldstændig som den dufter.
Jeg lærer det sku nok aldrig. Endnu en skuffelse

Tämligen lättdrucken med mycket olika smaker, lite citrustoner men ganska kort smak. Överlag god.

I just love these rums with no additives (sugar, colour etc. ).
I was very excited about tasting my first Caroni. This one didnt let me down.
Very fruity and sweet oak on the nose.
Balanced heavy and lite on the pallet, with oak, tar, caramel - a nice dry finish.

JD-test: 0-5 g/l sugar and 43,5 %ABV

If you're curious about trying rums from the Caroni distillery (closed 2002) but have been intimidated by their typical descriptions...lacquer, fresh leather, cigar box, acetone, burnt rubber...then this would be a great place to start. It's a "kinder, gentler" version of full-on, take-no-prisoners Caronis. This one has all the characteristics of real Trinidad rum (no, Angostura doesn't count) but the presentation is much smoother, less fiery, less intense. Still, it's full of flavor and very easy to enjoy straight up. Very good indeed.

My first Bristol Classic and this Caroni delivered.
Had high expectations and it certainly lived up to those.
Strong alcohol burn, but very pleasant, some ripe bananas, oak and caramel were the dominant flavors for me.
Not what you get when you order an Angostura rum nowadays!
The bottle suggested trying it over ice, so did try it with a cube too.
This removed the typical burn and watered it down too much, eventhough it did release some lighter flavors.
Would now like to try the Caroni 1974 and some of the other rums bottled by Bristol Classics.
