“Once this rum is rested the Caroni notes just come crawling across the table. I rested it for 15+ minutes before giving it a go. The nose has smoky wood, tar and rubber trailed by caramel, orange and a light earthy note. The palate is kind of in your face with roasted/smoky wood, tar, rubber, mango, caramel and light tobacco and iodine. What I like is the warm pepperyness on the palate. The finish is long and warm with wood and some earthy notes.”

“Großartige Abfüllung und sehr verschieden im Vergleich zum Kolonne Still Caroni von Cadenheads, den ich kurz davor im Glass hatte. Beide toll, aber doch grundverschieden im Profil🇹🇹.”
