“On a un nez avec moins de notes empyreumatiques que d’accoutumé avec Caroni, c’est dense, c’est fruité (banane) mais on retrouve par la suite les marqueurs typiques de Caroni avec la ligne de départ d’une course de Karting. En bouche, c’est puissant et lourd, on retrouve la banane du nez, du vernis et on retourne dans les pots d’échappements de notre course de karting. Mais ce qui m’interpelle le plus sur ce Caroni, ce sont ses notes végétales et florales (rose-violette). La finale est chaude et c’est bon. Un vrai rum de pirate comme nous l’annonçait l’étiquette !”
