How does this rum taste?

A smooth entry-level Caroni with a balance of fruity and typical rubbery notes. Subtle hints of red berries and cream, complemented by woody spices, yet lacks a bit of complexity. A pleasing, robust sipper with a lingering fruity finish.

“Meine Referenz bei kontinentalen Caronis. Dennoch kein Vergelich zu jeglichen tropischen Veliers. Guter Einsteiger Caroni.”

“Walks somewhat between worlds - on the nose still quite fruity, plus typical Caroni gum notes. On the palate then noticeably more intense, tar and heavy spice notes come to the wood and rubber and move the fruit notes clearly in the background. The fruits come into play again in the finish - quite independent in profile, a decent Caroni, but overall lacks a bit of finesse.”

“Also a more approachable early 98 Caroni showing distinctive notes of berries. Enjoyable but lacks some of the more dirty notes.”
