Un Caroni atipico e in questo caso il prezzo è giustificato solo per la sua rarità perché il rum in se è un interessante esperimento, ma di certo non siamo davanti ad un classico Caroni. È un esperimento che fa incontrare il rum col whisky perché se al naso mantiene l'impronta Caroni al palato invece pare un whisky torbato. Se uno vuole acquistare il suo primo Caroni statene alla larga perché la delusione e la spesa sarebbero inevitabili. Se invece volete provare un grande rum invecchiato in occidente in botti di whisky allora può essere una valida scelta. Chiaramente il prezzo non aiuta affatto.

Retasting 21.05.2021 and it got a few more points :-) This is a great Caroni and there is no doubt as soon as you nose the glass. Typical Caroni notes from the start. If you rest it for a hole those flavours just keep coming and it continues on to the palate with a nicely complex taste and a dry spice finish. A great bottle that I recommend people to try if they like Caroni as well as Trinidadian rum.
