How does this rum taste?

An exceptional Caroni, with a powerful balance of oily, tar-like notes, and surprising bursts of tropical fruit freshness. Some find it fiery and a tad bitter, yet with water it sings—a long, lingering finish evoking a sun-soaked mechanic's workshop.

“When tasting this Caroni, I immediately feel transported to the disused locomotive depot of an often visited Caribbean sugar factory, where the typical smell of various oily, tarry substances is in the air (the steam locomotives parked there were fired with heavy oils, the old wooden sleepers could still have been impregnated with tar creosote).Rums that remind me of beloved places, I like especially. So this one is definitely one of them. Big thanks to Distilia for the great sample at the 11th GRF in Berlin!”

“A rather good Caroni that is round and fruity in addition to the typical Caroni notes. I would have liked it to be a touch more dirty.”
