Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier were we tasted 9 different rums. This was the eighth rum of the night, that we tasted side-by-side with the 39th release of the same series "The Last". I have a big place in my heart for Caroni, so to be able to taste this one was fantastic. It shares similar characteristics with it´s brother, but is a bit more well-rounded.
Nose: Diesel, figs, mango, tarmac, cane sugar and some camphor
Taste: Straw, peach pit, figs, dark chocolate and tobacco
Overall: This is just a fantastic rum. It has the classic Caroni feel to it and as soon as it enters the glass, you just know, that you are drinking something special. It is maybe a bit to smooth for my liking, but I have nothing bad to say about this rum. Fantastic!
