“A Kill Devil single cask from 1998 to be tasted absolutely, drunk in comparison with the magnificent Caroni 21 from Velier and it surpasses it in character and originality, but not in terms of diversity and depth of flavors.To the nose the tar and the rubber are well present with tropical fruits.On the palate the integration of the alcohol is perfect, no burn but a palette of flavors immediately present.The finish is infinite with a hint of esters in addition.A demanding rum, it must be given a lot of time in the glass, but it combines these two things: extremity and balance.The empty glass reveals yet more aromas of fruit and machine shop.”
