“15/12/22: still like it. Not a very heavy Caroni, more fruity/dirty, but very nice. The bottle is almost finished now and that has made the rum more mellow.I have rather limited experience with Caroni rums so far. The characteristic factors are certainly there, but more subtle and less "dirty." In the nose I find it more fruity and medicinal, on the tongue very intense/complex with a serious kick from the alcohol with afterwards rather some mineral and earthy characteristics exactly.I do find it incredibly good and appropriate to taste on World Rum Day.Cheers 🌎🥃🧡”
