Dirty and strong Caroni. It lasts almost forever, you have the aftertaste still 1h later.
I had to add some water before tasting.

The nose is dirty. I get wild leather, acetone, gum, a litte bit sweetness (burnt sugar and dry fruits) and salt. It's already spicy in the nose. The alcohol is not well integrated.

In the taste it's as dirty as in the nose. I get the gum, salt, acetone, citrus.
If you are new to Caroni, don't start with this one. Then some dry fruits, tar, tannins (it turns bitter) and bicycle inner tube.

This Caroni should be more fruity and more balanced.
The spice intensifies the dirt notes. It's also a little bit too medical. I would rate it with 83 points.

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.
