“This is a very nice Caroni though the rubber note is very light the tar on the other hand is throughout the profile. I like the smoky wood and spices as well as the light fruits. I picked up some chocolate in the empty glass. Overall a well balanced rum with an oily palate. Draws really nice curtains in the glass.”

“Visite chez Ricci ! Fruité avec les notes d'hydrocarbures en retrait. Étonnamment accessible pour un Caroni !”

“Pas expert des caroni, mais j ai vraiment bien aimé ! Par rapport aux autres que j ai pu goûter, c est moins sale et plus fruité avec un côté très crémeux en douche. Franchement l alcool y est très bien intégré…. C est très bon, mais pour les puriste caroni que je ne suis pas je ne saurais pas faire un comparatif.”
