“Overall an extremely round, smooth and well balanced Caroni without losing some of the more dirty notes. Tasted this at a special tasting at Rum Cane Society (CRS) in Stockholm, which is the rum bar in Europe with most different rum bottlings. The Cane Bottling Co. is a Swedish IB founded and owned by Lars Renbjer and Niklas Blomquist, the latter co-owner of CRS. The rum is a 25yo column distilled rum from the Caroni distillery. It’s Continental aged first for 8 years in former bourbon casks and thereafter in old rum casks for the rest of the time.”

“Spicy Caroni... Alcohol could be better integrated. Red fruits, plum some mint. Leather and wood ... looks pleasing and harmonious. Finish then slightly bitter.”
