“My first Caroni. It's woody, fruity and sweet. It's hard to believe it's over 62°. The profile changes completely on tasting. Now I understand what makes these rums so special. It's woody and heavy. On retro-olfaction, there are hints of tar in the mouth and the whole thing ends in a strange bitterness. It's disconcerting.2nd tasting, it's even richer. It seems sweeter. I can't find the 62° at all, it just slips away. I finish on an almost salty, metallic note. I kind of understand the interest in Caronis. It makes you want to go for even more typical bottles.Edit: 👍Edit2: oxidation has taken its toll on the power of this sample, but it's still very pleasant and typical of what I now know of Caroni. Very good.”
