“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: For me, this falls somewhat short of the first employees, as Sarge & Co. are much more convincing. But mind you, we are talking about criticism at the highest level. The rating remains the same - undoubtedly a very good rum, but even that is clearly no longer enough for the top league among the Velier Caronis. The 1998 Vintage is in the extended top circle.”

“A sample tasted after the Caroni Velier 1983 52%. Totally different.Thanks Thomas for the sample.This is a "real" Caroni as expected, even stronger than expected.A powerful nose with incense, machine shop, fruit and cold ash.An intense and concentrated palate with mostly fruit and a finish dominated by a noble bitterness.A Caroni for extreme rum lovers.The empty glass tells a whole story of an old church with a tropical fruit market in front. Fascinating!”
