How does this rum taste?

The Heavy Trinidad Rum HTR is a well rounded yet complex rum with notes of light leather, cherry, licorice, wood, and faint tar. It is subtly sweet yet offers a hint of rubber and roasted undertones. Some users find the tasting experience somewhat weak and diluted, though generally, it offers a shorter to medium finish and leaves a light touch of dried fruit and rubber. While it's appreciated for its unique blend, it might be considered quite expensive for its overall delivery. It's better enjoyed without comparison and offers a more satisfying after-taste.

“Un sample de rhum dégusté après un Caroni 1996 21 yo et l’impression était celle d’un rhum dilué et sans goût où dominent la poire et le beurre avec quelques lointains rappels d’atelier mécanique. Regoûté tout seul et la note sera meilleure sans la comparaison, mais le côté dilué et poire beurrée sont toujours là. Avec au nez et en bouche nettement plus d’atelier mécanique et plus de profondeur. La finale est plutôt longue et laisse quand même un peu de caoutchouc/goudron en plus du fruit. Très cher pour un Caroni moyen. Le verre vide est bien plus expressif que le reste avec un côté Demerara. Merci pour le sample Thomas.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Bei den beiden 1983er Caronis fällt auf, dass die dreckigen Noten nicht sonderlich präsent sind, stattdessen kommen auch eher leichte, d.h. LTR-typische Süssenoten zum Vorschein. Für mich liegt der (angebliche) Full Proof mit 55% ein Stück vor dem 52%-High Proof dank etwas mehr Komplexität und prägnanteren Teer- und Gumminoten. Insgesamt wirkt das Profil fast wie ein LTR- & HTR-Blend.”
