How does this rum taste?

The Gran Torino Demerara Rum is a robust, complex spirit with a deceiving Caroni-like profile. Dominant notes of tar, rubber, and tropical fruits, alongside a Demerara sweetness, make it a delightful surprise. Excellent integration of high ABV, but somewhat short finish.

“A rum discovered thanks to RumX and brought back from Italy by a friend at a low price. A dark color and a nose where I'd expected Caroni, but instead it was fruit that presented itself, raisins and figs but also tropical fruit. The discreet notes of a mechanic's workshop on the nose are revealed in full on the palate, Caroni in flagrante delicto. A motorcycle repair shop in full sunshine amid trees bearing all kinds of fruit, tropical and otherwise. The music is tropical and the sun is beating down. The finish is long, never-ending, with its own focus on fruit or on typical Caroni notes. A very clean Demeroni, with obvious Caroni notes, but little or nothing dirty. Like a 1995, for example the "Ancient Mariner", or even a 1996 with a little less exuberance all the same. I like it very much, and the value for money here is absolutely exceptional!”

“And that's not Caroni? Unbelievable! Incredibly successful rum. I've never had anything like it in my glass. Nice and bacony on the nose, nice and dirty on the palate. With the emphasis on "nice" in each case. Round and perfectly balanced, the streaks in the glass are so oily that they don't want to run down. A dream. Please forgive me, but I am so blown away by this gem that I have to give this rum its highest rating yet.”

“What a positive surprise.....So a Diamond I had not yet in the glass! I can only agree with the previous tasters... it comes along like a dirty Caroni... delicate dark fruit notes and burnt demerara sugar is also perceptible!A great rum, especially if you consider the PLV thereby!Today in the RumX calendar, Day20:And again fully fallen into the trap...was sure to have a Caroni in the glass”
