When this one was poured there was no doubt where it was from. The lovely Caroni notes were there right away. Runner and tar mixed with roasted wood and light fruits. The leather note is very light and I loved the empty glass. Yum 😊

Haaa, le nez se met en place. C'est différent des Caroni traditionnels ! Cela est plus typé sur le bois et les épices. Le tout englobé par les hydrocarbures typiques de la distillerie mais en moindre mesure que d'accoutumé. C'est plus solvanté. C’est prometteur … En bouche, c'est boisé. Du boisé fumé-toasté même ! Il y a de la prune, des raisins secs, du tabac, de la mangue en arrière-plan. La finale est très longue sur le poivré avec une légère note astringente. Une sacré belle longueur, j’ai vraiment bien aimé. Cela faisait longtemps que je ne m’étais plus plongé dans un Caroni, pfiou que c’est bon ! Encore un énorme merci aux ROA pour cette dégustation incroyable. Et en plus, à ce qu’il parait j’aurai même droit à un petit sample des dernières sorties pour continuer …

Very smooth and soft vanilla. From first sight It don’t even remind Caroni. After time. Heavy charred oak. Coal. Really smoke rum. Rubber. “Used sweet chawing gum”. Not much fruits by now. Palate are strong. Cola. Liquorice. Tobacco leaves. Minty pears. Apples. Fruitiness comes out only more like 15 mins in glass… Don’t rush. Take a time. On nose it really somehow reminds me island scotch whisky. Banana… lots of bananas

Nez et l'attaque sont excellents, après j'ai trouvé que le rhum manque de longueur
