“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 😊”

“Jour 23 du calendrier Samples de Luxe. Caroni à plein nez ! Atelier mécanique et fruits tropicaux très mûrs, mais aussi des arômes végétaux. La bouche est marquée par l’alcool, mais aussitôt elle se remplit d’arômes complexes et profonds. La finale est marquée par le bois et une certaine amertume mais n’est pas aussi longue que certains Caronis. Le verre vide exprime toute la complexité de ce rhum qui a sans doute, comme tous les Caronis HTR, besoin de beaucoup d’oxygénation. La finale un peu déçevante m’a fait baisser ma note. Regouté et nettement moins bon que le « Tresspassers »”

“A Caroni that plays on raw strength with great intensity. The oil notes of tar and rubber are immediately perceptible, before a hint of freshness appears, followed by red fruits, then exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) that bring greediness. The woodiness is dry and intense, with lively spices, leather and empyreumatic notes that leave a lasting impression on the nostrils. A fine concentration of Caroni DNA. The attack is very powerful, marked by wood, leather, spices (pepper), tobacco and smoky, even burnt notes that take over the palate. Tar and rubber recall Caroni's typical dirty side, while a bitterness emerges on the palate with a certain astringency. A hint of fruitiness emerges with pineapple, citrus and dried fruit. The 66% is present and could be better integrated, but the rum's structure is there and well developed. A rough, even beastly Caroni. The finish is very long, taken up by bitter notes, tannins, a woodiness incensed by spices and smoky notes. Hydrocarbon notes follow, with leather, tobacco and dried fruit. A lively, provocative Caroni that needs time to be fully appreciated.”
