“Danke für die 2. Möglichkeit diesen Rum im Glas zu haben. Sicher sind die tropischen Veliers noch einen Tacken geiler, aber nichtsdestotrotz hat man hier flüssige Geschichte im Glas. Geiles Zeug.”

“Extremely exciting to be able to drink a Caroni from 1974. Got the sample a few months ago and waited for the right moment. Of course, a little more ABV would be good for him, but I think you can get over that with this rarity. Thanks Rik for the sample 🙏🏼”

“A Caroni distilled in the year of my birth. Expectations are high...A great nose as if from a single mold. Very dirty, very, very awesome varnish!!! Then fruits and nice wood maturity with lots of spices. Enough power in the 1920s Blenders glass as well. It doesn't need time to breathe either.In the mouth it's a bit too weak then. Long, woody finish. 34 years in the tropics are then but long.Pure Caroni magic, the bouquet.😊 The rest is solala.”
