How does this rum taste?

The 1991 Caroni Rum boasts a robust full flavor of dark chocolate and burned caramel, with a surprisingly lesser woodiness, despite its 30-year age. Though not a typical Caroni and carrying a potent first hit, it's an intriguing overproof rum for those appreciative of subtler garage notes.

“This Caroni is probably a bottling with a very high Light/LTR content. The typical dirty notes are missing almost completely and the remaining profile remains very flat. Has strong Spanish echoes, but there is then eg from Belize in more exciting form.”

“Definitely a very, very tasty Trinidad Overproof but caroni?! I feel here only to 5-10% maximum. But outstanding that the part has really 30 years on the hump and still tastes so little woody! Really tasty!”
