Not your typical Caroni, but it does have the typical Caroni notes though they are dialed down. The nose is kind of mild with wood, tar, light rubber and varnish trailed by spice, leather and light raisin. The palate is woody with tar, light rubber and tannins trailed by spice, leather and mango and the empty glass has chocolate and caramel after a while. The finish is medium long with wood, spices and dried fruit.

Gut dreckig und bleibt lange im Gaumen und Abgang plus verändert sich unterwegs. Einige würden sagen, dass der Rum Schwächen hat, oder aber es ist das was einen Caroni auch ausmacht. Die Nase verspricht ein runderes Erlebnis als es dann im Mund ist. Erinnert mich ein wenig an den 100th Anniversary

Sehr, sehr ähnlich zum Bristol 97er 20y/o. oder die anderen aus der Reihe. Sehr angenehm zu trinken durch die 55%. Sehr langer Abgang.

Very well balanced and complex rum. Almost to elegant for a HTR Caroni 😅
