How does this rum taste?

An esteemed Caroni with a robust, sweetly smoky profile, offering a balance of fruit and classic tar notes. Its tropical aging delivers a punch at 52% ABV, with a complex blend that matures gracefully in the glass. A Caroni lover's delight, though some find it less accessible than younger expressions. Limited release with a loyal following, making it a prized sipper that's both intense and surprisingly smooth.

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Slight hints of earthy notes bring in the unexpected. Apart from that, however, a solid Caroni from tropical storage with a classic profile.”

“Very nice entry level Caroni at a wonderful drinking strength. More toasty and more caramel than the 12. Falls in comparison to the outstanding 1996 vintage but clearly.”

“Compared to the 12 year old this one is fruitier and it has more complexity and smoothness to it. The nose is typical Caroni and it's rounded and intense with a bit of industrial flavour to it. The palate is very complex and fruity with smoky oak to it. The finish is very long and fruity with smoked oak to it. Price to quality is good.”
