Very young. Smooth with a subtle bite that is really enjoyable. No depth. No complexity. Light finish. This is indeed a good young rum. I just don’t like young rum. Not do I understand it fully. “Leave this in the damn barrel”. It is good enough to produce a real beauty in a few years!
Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/14/20. My first Austrian rum. This makes for a good mixing rum, but likely not to be consumed neat. Vanilla aroma, soft caramel. The pepper burn clings on your tongue.
Never saw this one in actual Trinidad.
Good for sipping and mixers!
Strong natural cinnamon and vanilla notes make it taste like the 1790s! 🏴☠️
Like a softer old santa teresa before they made the formula sweet. At 59%abv its surprisingly smooth
Made for mixing, but this rum is fantastic on its own! A little peppery zing to accompany the dark, rich loveliness. At $22 usd it’s incredible.
Bought this to use in a craft cocktail, but ended up enjoying as a sipper as well. Works neat or with a large ice cube. Will definitely purchase again.
I finally got my hands on a bottle of this blend of 3-5 year old rums from Trinidad. And yes, it has enough Caroni in it to be able to detect this. At only $27 US per bottle, this can be called the poor man's Caroni. For those who ever wanted to know what Caroni tasted like and can't find or afford any, this one is your chance. It is bottled dry at 49% ABV and was commissioned about 4 years after Caroni went out of business by a famous cocktail lounge in NYC known as Death & Co. Some of these bottles remain for sale, but are extremely hard to find. Hopefully, the dirty notes of the Caroni portion will not reveal their ugly head as the rum slowly disappears in my bottle.
This rum from Trinidad is slightly sweet golden rum, very dry and floral similar to an agricole. Enjoyable easy to drink, not my normal drink but worth trying. Taste young 3-4 years but good.
Not to be had alone, it’s ok in cocktails but all the promise of interesting aromas leads to disappointment when actually drinking it. Color is nice, aromas are complex with vanilla as the lead, but it never comes through on the palate. Unwanted grassiness and imbalance are the primary attributes. I really wanted to like it.

The nose is quite light. .
"It is quite dry. The sweetness doesn’t last long on the tongue before being taken over by the more latin notes."
