“A rum tasted at the WLP. Fruit, lots of fruit on the first nose, with a slight diesel and metallic edge. The palate attacks quite strongly, then quickly fruits, diesel and the same metallic side as on the nose. The finish is on wood and a light menthol that refreshes, it's long and the notes of machine shop arrive in force with wintergreen. A Caroni of fruit and freshness.”

“Accessible Caroni with a nice sweetness and fruitiness. Creamy and rather on the not so dirty Caroni side.”
