How does this rum taste?

A harmonious blend with hints of chocolate, creamy cappuccino, and subtle dirt. Its smooth, oily texture complements a refined Caroni profile of tar, leather, and light fruitiness. The finish is long but craves a bit more power.

“one of the few typical caronis that I actually like, metallic, spicy, heavy and dirty. not as exaggerated only after rust and metal as other today's bottlings but really still nicely balanced and oily.”

“14.08.2015 A nice evening out with friends from Copenhagen and Malmö. Notes Dark in colour. Nose Intense, wood, light smoke, caramel, light tar, orange, rubber. Palate Oily, wood, tannins, light mint, faint smoke, dried fruit, tar, rubber, faint caramel. Finish Very long, wood, tannins, roasted, raisin, citrus, light tar and rubber.”

“A Caroni with a full but discreet profile on the nose, rather greedy and turned towards tar, oak, leather and menthol before red fruits and citrus fruits appear. The typical Caroni taste is repeated on the palate, but much sweeter and chocolatier. The whole is oily and round, but lacks the aroma and power of other Caroni. The finish is moderately long, falling short of expectations in terms of taste. Aromas of leather, licorice and menthol mingle with spicy, caramelized, tobacco and chocolate notes, but the whole struggles to stay on the palate and convince. A subtle Caroni that needs a few more degrees to be more expressive.”
