When nosed, you immediately know its a tarry, punchy rum that hits you hard; you wouldn’t be mistaking this for anything else other than a Caroni with the notes of burnt plastic and the fumes that come with it. But aside from the heat, there are signs of gentleness in the glass, warm chesnuts, vanilla, ripe fruits, mangoes, toasted tea biscuits. On the palate, a tiny bit of sweetness peeks through at first before the sourness and wood starts creeping in. The middle is remarkably pleasant, more toasted tea biscuits, cola, toffee apples and just the slightest hint of leather and iodine. The finish is long and elegant, the wood is there, but not overpowering, and melds together nicely with caramel and vanilla, raisins, toasted marshmallows, and a side of dark cocoa.

I let it in the glass, regularly shaking and smelling, for about 45 minutes before starting to drink. Such a lot of smells in the nose. Gasoline station and mechanic smells with diesel, tar, smoke and also rubber that turned to candle wax. Along, a lot of fruits, vanilla, chocolate, biscuits, cocoa and some honey. After some time, many of the smells mixing themselves with alcohol gave the nose a pastry and gourmand side by reminding me of a tiramisu. A very complex and delicious nose. The mouth starts pretty powerful then turns sweeter thanks to a very good integrated alcohol. More wood than in the nose. Many of the flavours found in the nose are there, but cherries, tobacco, leather, iodine and earth are also showing themselves flooding the whole mouth and palate with a perfectly balanced rum. The finish is long, the tarry and rubber/candle wax notes especially, which mix themselves very good with wood, iodine, caramel and cocoa. In the empty glass remain particularly noticeable the tar and the rubber, along with chocolate an iodine. And, though it is very subjective according to everybody having a different nose, but I also feel some notes of coffee and spice. This rum is a real gem, complex, balanced with very good integrated caroni notes and alcohol. The way smells and flavours evolve makes it incredibly delicious.
