Caroni kan man smage men ikke så gennemtrængende..

This is a good way to find out, if you are into the much hyped Caroni rums. It does have a little of the gasoline notes, but is a lot easier to drink than some of the stronger Caroni. And it won't bust your wallet either.

The nose is a mixture of sweet, fresh tropical fruits, oak and smokey, tarlike notes. I like it alot. The palette offers a bit of heat but is sweeter then most caroni's. My tounge pick up notes of light, but distinct oak, smoke, molasse and perhaps banana. I dont find it to be heavy bodied, compared to other caronis and it could perhaps be considered as a good starter into the wonderfull world of caroni, at an affordable price.

Not very complex caroni, but one that I like.
Pefect dilution to 55%, good choice and because of that tasty. I'm a leather junkie. This is the perfect Caroni for me. I love the dark fruit with this dirty leather notes.
Sometimes I just wanna jump into this bottle and sit there for the eternaty.

The nose is dominated by leather, it's not very fruity, this caroni has more dirty notes like all 1998 Caronis. But there is also some currant (dark fruit) in the background. I like the leather with dark fruit.
The taste represents almost the nose, no surprises there. But the aftertaste is genious, leather with peppermint. Therefore 88 points.

Nose: Gum, wild leather, currant, barrel, wood, tanins, tar
Taste: tar, wild leather, gum, dark fruit (currant)
Finish: leather, wood (tanins)
Very tasty aftertaste. Peppermint leather with a light sweetness (some currant).
Oh my gosh, the aftertaste is so tasty.

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 2/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Mildness: 2.5/5
Complexity: 3/5
Value (135€): 4/5
Experience level: expert

Being farly newer in the rum world i picked this up looking for a bit different rum. I read that the Caroni style is not for everybody and that this is a "light" version.

Well - when introducing it for friends i prepare them that it will give them a slap on the chin and then the taste rollercoaster will take them further away. Most agree on that and actually enjoy it quite a lot. I personally cant drink more than one glass at at time of this, but overall an interesting rum.

Lighter than many of the Velier releases this one is often underrated, but the lower abv allows the rum to showcase some deep and fruity flavours alongside the more usual petrol/tarmac notes that Caroni is known for. A Caroni for everyday sipping!

Il manque quelque chose à ce Caroni. le blend est moins bien fait que chez Velier cela dis pour commencer dans les Caroni c'est très bien.

Setter er min første Caroni.
Den er god. Starter sødt og går over en kraftig fadsmag

Meget fin duft - eller så afbalanceret - smagen er lidt gummiagtige dog uden at blive for meget
