Very good representative of the 1998 vintage, but not an exceptional release.

Dirty 1998 Caroni with classic notes of rubber, tar as well as menthol paired with light fruitiness. In addition, wood and dark chocolate, which together with the spice provide bitterness and expressiveness. Good, but not an outstanding Caroni release.

I had the unique opportunity to compare this rum with other 98s yesterday. A very special, delicate rum. The nose is wonderful, balanced, caramel, bourbon. On the palate also of these notes, very round, mild, little dirty notes, alcohol very well integrated, filigree. Not without reason, this great rum was selected as one of the best of many casks by the Tasting Gang as a single cask...

Un Caroni de style HTR mais au profil assez original. Si on ressent les notes empyreumatiques au nez, une fraîcheur florale et végétale est également présente. En bouche, l’attaque se repose sur les notes pétrolifères, boisées, fumées, florales et fruitées, mais l’ensemble se veut assez doux et réservé. On pouvait s’attendre à une explosivité en bouche, mais il n’en est rien. La finale est longue mais fine, avec pas mal d’hydrocarbures, de bois, d’épices et de fruits secs. Bien que ce Caroni soit cohérent avec son identité et plaisant, il manque de profondeur et d’impact pour marquer les esprits. Là encore, la qualité n’est pas au niveau placé par le prix.

A very nice release with lighter Caroni notes, but they're there and that's what's important. You want those chewy rubber tires 😊 Nice balance with nice smoky wood notes and light fruit. Nice and oily on the palate and it draws really nice curtains.

Like its older brother (1996 Caroni Blended, Paradise #1), the nose of the 98 is very gentle despite being a HTR, caramel and molasses. There’s lots of fresh notes in the glass too, mint, green apples, interestingly I did pick up a slight greenness, coupled with a side of malt, ripe mangoes and tropical flavours. The palate is where the HTR reveals itself, and from the start you get a blend of sweetness and tar that envelops the tongue. Strangely enough, despite being the younger of the two, the wood stands out in the glass too, spicy, oak, rather dry and grippy on the sides of the palate. The finish brings back a bit of the tar, but mostly dominated by more pleasant and softer notes of vanilla, guava, and florals.
