Duft af frugt og sødme, som bliver lidt kvalmende efter lidt tid i glasset. Smag af fermenteret frugt, blandt andet fersken og abrikos. Lidt varm i svælget, men ellers ikke sprittet. Ikke en dårlig rom, men jeg er ikke fan af fermenteret frugt. (1. December 2018 MacY)

On paper, this rum is very interessting. It’s a trinidad mix from angostura and the now legendary and unfortunately closed caroni destillery. The ratio is unknown but my geuss is that there’s very little caroni in there as neither the price or taste suggest a whole lot of caroni. Aside from bourbon ageing, it’s also finished in french sauternes casks (sweet wine). The age itself is not available.
The nose is sweet and fruity with apricot, peach, orange, vanilla and honney. Perhaps a bit of lavender as well. The sauternes finish is very apparent. The taste is sweet as well, again with the fruity notes alongside canesugar, banana and vanilla. There’s perhaps a hint of some deeper character imparted by the caroni, kinda like a subtle shade of tar, but it’s very underplayed.
This rum is on to something but it’s no where near it’s full potential. I know that at this pricepoint, there’s limit’s, but a smidge more caroni and less added sugar could perhaps have made this rum exceptional.

Eine Mischung aus Caroni und Angostura Destillaten.
Schönes honiggelbes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase sehr fruchtig und süss, kandierte Zitrusfrüchte auf getoastetem, karamellisiertem Holz mit Schokostreusel obendrauf.
Im Gaumen sehr süss und elegant, Schokolade mit karamellisierte Orangen Stückchen sind die dominanten Aromen die den Anderen Nuancen kaum Platz lassen.
Im Abgang lange nach Orangen und Kakao, schon fast klebrig.
Ein Rum der mich mit seinen Orangenaromen stark an den Pyrat erinnert. Das Caroni Profil habe ich leider noch Nirgends erkannt. Ein süsser leckerer Rum für Alle zum Nichtstun. 7+
Die Flaschen sind Nummeriert keine Ahnung wie viele, ich habe die Flasche Nr. 240.

A mixture of caroni and Angostura distillates.
Beautiful honey-yellow amber in the glass.
In the nose very fruity and sweet, candied citrus fruits on toasted, caramelized wood with chocolate sprinkles on top.
In the palate very sweet and elegant, chocolate with caramelized orange pieces are the dominant aromas that leave little room for the other nuances.
In the finish long after oranges and cocoa, almost sticky.
A rum that reminds me with its orange aromas strongly of the Pyrat. Unfortunately I didn't recognize the Caroni profile anywhere. A sweet tasty rum for all to do nothing. 7+
The bottles are numbered no idea how many, I have bottle number 240.
