How does this rum taste?

Robust Caroni with a dirty, oily nose that blooms into a fruity, complex palette with smoky undertones and hints of red berries. While bold and full-bodied, some may find the finish shorter than desired. Best enjoyed with a drop of water or rested.

“This is yet another release of the 1997 Caroni and it has just gotten better with even more aging. A nice Trinidad and Tobago blend that shines beside the other 1997 releases. You may want to add a drop or two of water if you think it bites too much or you just leave it to rest for 15-30 minutes. A wonderful nose transferring into a full bodied complex rum with a long warm finish.”

“My dry January lasted four and a half days but I just couldn’t refuse to sample this Caroni 😂 Lovely dirty nose, more fruity taste wise. A very good Caroni!”

“On the nose solvents and cherry, some vanilla. In taste more woody and citrusy than the Replica, only other Caroni I had. Somehow less interesting than the other one, less complex, although I do enjoy a more bitter profile.”
