Gentle aroma. First taste is nice fruity sweet, but after approx. 3 second starts burning (stronger than you would expect from 43%) aftertaste is not pleasant, short with salt tones.

Mein erster Caroni Rum.
Und er hat mich sofort überzeugt.
So viel Geschmack in einem Glas.

Caroni classic heavy style, almost at points like an older sherry whisky: Big, bold, fruity, oily...Truly a big Caroni.

Rum tasting with my buddy in Tampere continued with Bristol Caroni 19y 1997-2016. Very nice bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Strong floral notes mixed with traditional Trinidad flavors to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry burn at the end being bottled at 123 Proof.

Dark amber color towards mahogany. On the nose, there are candied fruits, it is very pastry. Crème brûlée, toast. Subtle notes of smoke and solvent. It is not yet the classic big artillery Caroni.
On the palate, it stays on the same aroma, it is powerful and after a very long aeration, the Caroni classic markers arrive, smoked, bitumen but it does not kill the palate. It's long and beautiful, but it's still accessible for neophytes. Beautiful rum.

Ekkarraktär. Eldig och diesel som en Caroni ska vara. Smooth och söt övermorgon frukt.

Ein Geheimtip,ein super Caroni und aus einem der besten Jahrgänge bei Caroni
Würde Velier draufstehen würde die Flasche gleich 3x soviel kosten.
Schwer stark und wunderschön ölig im Glas,eine wunderbare Nase,schöner langer Nachhall.
Der hohe Alkoholgehalt ist schön eingebunden,man sollte ihn jedoch grosszügig im Glas atmen lassen
Die Flaschen sind (Stand 1/2018) noch gut zwischen 120-140 Euro im Handel zu bekommen.
Das ist ein fairer Preis und in Anbetracht dass Caroni schon jetzt Geschichte ist und bald aus sein wird ist der Preis geradezu einer der letzten Aufrufe sich einzudecken.

A difficult rum, with some smokiness and absolutely no sweetness. However extremely rich in flavour

Definitely worth to have something special like this in the cabinet.

If you are into Caroni, this is a very fairly priced bottle. The high alcohol percentage is felt and it feels like the rum is powerbombing your tastebuds. To me the only downside is that the rum has matured partly in Europe. So the 18 years don't give the rum the same heavy body as it would, had it stayed the full 18 years in the Caribbean.
