This rum is very well balanced and complex. At full ABV it comes in very well, but when adding a few drops of water it releases a lot of flavours not present at full ABV. Oak and fruits from nose to finish and it wanders between vegetal and herbal notes. I like it and the price tag at release is very good.

Au nez nous sommes sur le pont d'un bateau avec le bois ciré, puis la gourmandis arrive avec le caramel et le café entremêlés à l'orange (bien avancée). Quelques notes "piquantes" de tannins viennent nous réveiller également. Après une longue aération les fruits tropicaux s'invitent à la fête. En bouche, c'est complexe, piquant en 1er lieu. Les notes dominantes sont torréfiées avec le café, le cuir, le pain bien grillé. En fond les fruits tropicaux et l'anis viennent apporter de la fraîcheur à l'ensemble. La finale est assez longue sur les épices et l'anis. Un caroni agréable mais je les préfère plus fruités.

quoi de mieux que d’aller au Trinité-et-Tobago dans la mythique distillerie fermée qui produisait le Caroni 😋. Et oui l’état a fermé la sucrerie en 2003 car pas assez rentable. Plus de sucre, plus de mélasse ==> plus de rhum ! Certains ont senti le vent tourné et ont raflé le stock dont un certain Lucas. Mais pas que car ici on va goûter un embouteillage de Duncan Taylor ! Laissons le verre s’aérer ainsi que notre nez car après le Long Pond, il faut descendre d’un étage en terme de nez. Haaa, le nez se met en place. C’est plus rond, cela sent l’amande, la vanille. Le tout englobé par les hydrocarbures typiques de la distillerie. En bouche, il y a de la prune, des raisins secs, du tabac, de la mangue. Et en finale le cuir et menthol. Une vraie longueur comme on les aiment 🤩. Qu’est ce qui fait l’intérêt des Caroni ? ben c’est bon tout simplement. En voie d’extinction donc cela fait le buzzzz et l’intérêt de certains spéculateurs. Acheté il y a 2 ans chez un particulier à moins de 100€, bonne chance pour le retrouver à ce prix 🤞. Vu ce jour au Luxembourg à 220€ 😱.
