“Un très beau nez qui laisse présager des merveilles. Caoutchouc, fruits secs un côté rôti et du bois noble. La bouche est un peu déçevante, diluée mais avec un menthol/eucalyptus frais très intéressant. La finale est un combat entre le menthol et l’atelier mécanique. Un beau rhum de chez Bristol, sa trop forte dilution, à mon goût, lui fait perdre des points. Par contre on le boit facilement et il est très agréable. Merci Rodolphe pour le sample.”

“Despite a significant reduction, we have a quite complex and expressive Caroni. Profile is very well balanced both dirty and round. Biggest drawback is the finish which is not very long and less complex. A very good surprise though 👌”
