Al naso non da il meglio di se, anzi pare meno forte del previsto. Al palato invece arriva con tutta la sua tipica forza di catrame e barile. Un gran Caroni!

Un Caroni sympas ! C'est pas une folie mais ça reste un très bon rhum ! Épicé et musqué. Un léger caoutchoucs qu'on sent revenir en finale, du caramel chaud.

Un bon Caroni, sans prétention mais sans défaut. Pas très typique mais c'est pas grave.

sehr entspannter caroni! schöne Mischung aus getrockneten Früchten wie Dattel und Rosine, Früchtebrot und dunkle Schokolade, sowie den typisch rauchigen und medizinischen Gummi und Jod Noten, dazu etwas Mokka, Honig und Leder.
