This rum is the bad boy of all rums. Dirty, strong, strange. It lasts almost forever, you have the aftertaste still 1h later.
It's so intensive, it kicked my palet out of my mouth.
I had to add some water before tasting.
I like the 17y caroni from bristol but it could be a little bit stronger.
This cask strength rum could be more fruity and more balanced. But it's still a Caroni.

After the third tasting I could enjoy this one. If you try this for the first time your palet get overhelmed. You have to add some water to it, to make it drinkable.

When you drink it for the first time, you think wtf is that, this is the worst rum ever.
But when you drink it some days later you will think, which rum could taste like this? And the answer is no one. And that is the point, the taste is very special. No other rum can offer you this aromas.
Love it or hate it, but you have to taste it.

Nice gentle aroma. First few second is sweet and woody. After is everything covered by burning. Aftertaste shorter and dry. Much better consumable with few drops of water.

A rare bottle of rum. Non chill filtered rum which has a very sharp taste. This is not for "kids"! 64% volume!! For some it might be better with a little bit of water.
