“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Develops amazing aromatic complexity with a little patience and time spent in the bottle. Rather dry Caroni with only discreet, but very charming residual sweetness and a lot of barrel influence, which is undoubtedly intense, but does not tip into the too bitter. One of the bottlings where the long availability is qualitatively inexplicable. Exceptionally good.”

“Neatly dirty, very little fruit, lots of wood/spice tones and mint. Makes me very much fun. Unfolds after years in the open bottle a higher Kompexität.”

“A very dark rum in appearance. 23 years of tropical aging. It takes time, a lot of time to reveal itself, but then it becomes an exceptional rum. Still marked by the wood, but with a complexity and depth of flavors never tasted before. The finish is endless and the empty glass the next morning tells a story of its own.In a word: the more oxidized it is, the better it is.The bottom of the bottle is my best rum experience to date.”
