Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

Enjoyed a bottle of Caroni 23y 1994-2017 while in London. Very nice packaging, bottle and label design. Deep amber color. Oak and cherries to your nose and palate. Typical whisky like burn at the end. If you are a whisky lover, you can easily add 3 points to the score.


Amazing taste. Like no other.
Between whisky and rum but it is rum !

N- A dark velvet, elegantly sweet with fine seasoned leather, bisquity yeasty milky note. Rounded up with rip mashed maraschino cherry. Savoury double boiled chicken essence, unusual in a very tasty way. (23/25)

P- Savoury, firm and solid bites of oak that unleashed the wild herb bitterness. Glad the big oak steal the shows in this one with the boiling sweet distillate echoing at the back. (23/25)

F- Long, raw mushroom, authentic and aggressive. Heavy phenol and spicy oak linger with velvet dark sweetness. (22/25)

Balanced:- An unusual oak beast. (23/25)

Weighted Rate:- 91pt

Smakar som ingen annan typ av rom. Fudge och diesel. Mandel/marsipan i eftersmaken.

On est en plein dans les senteurs empyreumatique (réglisse, grillé) mais pas que…c’est aussi gourmand grâce à des notes de beurre et caramel, mais aussi un petit quelque chose de fruité (banane ?). Vraiment un super nez qui fait saliver.
La bouche attaque sur du vernis et énormément de bois, puis s’installent des fruits (cerise, myrtille) mais il y a une amertume boisée qui gâche un peu le plaisir.
La finale reste dominée par le boisé et les hydrocarbures.
Quel dommage que les saveurs en bouche ne soient pas à la hauteur de celles du nez…
