“Par où commence ? Compliqué déjà la bouteille est incroyable de détails. Ensuite paf la fumée et la tourbe (ou hydrocarbures ?) m’envahissent. Les fruits sont clairement présents même si en recul, on passe pas tous les états, et on finit avec une odeur impossible à se sortir de la tête. Dernier verre au 1802 car après ça plus rien ne peut faire face !”

“Tak na tuto lahev jsem se moc těšil, protože jsem pro ni musel přimo do Pařížského obxhodu ExcellenceRhum. a hlavně zkušenost velí, že co se vybírá probar 1802, to stojí za to. K vůni a chuti. Po prvotním přivonění je mi jasné, že to bude o kouřovosti a rašelině. Vystupuje sušené ovoce, kůže a máta. V chuti je rašelinovost cítit, vystupují taniny, sušené ovoce, kůže, máta, trocha petroleje. Je to těžší rum na který musí být vhodná chvíle, ale pak to udělá úsměv na tváři.”

“Nose gives recognizable Caroni scents, smoky with some tar and funnily it's slightly peated. There are also fruits, dark chocolate and Espresso tones. As the glass gradually empties I feel some apple and wax notes. It's a very good nose ! Palate gives many flavours already got on nose. It's dry with iodine, mint and leather. It finishes long and pretty smooth, still smoky and peated, with fruits, dark chocolate and iodine. A very good Caroni !”
