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.

Toujours une expérience sympathique de pouvoir découvrir un Caroni. Celui-ci est d'abord assez léger au nez, plutôt doux. Puis on sent que ça monte en puissance avec des notes fumees. On devine bien que le goût sera puissant. En bouche, c'est d'abord sucré et caramélisé puis ça devient plus lourd et épais. Des solvants, du goudron, du brûlé arrivent pour bien marquer le territoire Caroni. Sympathique dégustation :)

Ça, c'est bon... Pas très marqué côté goudron.
