How does this rum taste?

An intense Caroni with tar and herbal notes, matured in Oloroso casks, offers a complex, oaky palate. Requires airing. Some find it unbalanced, with medicinal and metallic hints - a divisive, rare gem for enthusiasts of robust flavors. (6.3-9.1/10)

“A real Caroni from the first nose, mechanical workshop and tropical fruits. Much better after a few months of opening the bottle, as Caronis like oxidation. The mouth is not left out with a long finish. Very nice rum ! Tasted again and even better.”

“In terms of olfactory aromas, I primarily perceive the typical dirty Caroni markers. Something fresh joins in... and that's it. The palate is almost identical, with spicy aromas in addition to the dirty ones. The fruit (dark berries) is completely absent! In my opinion, the sherry finish is barely noticeable. There is also a slight bitter note in the finish. Overall, I find this Caroni to be quite one-dimensional. It clearly lacks the complexity to be at the very top.”

“I really like this well balanced 22 year old caroni, which was finished for 3 years in used Oloroso casks. The nose is intense and stats with tannins and tar, but then descends into and oaky, herbal and medicinal bliss. The palate is dark and intense with a load of flavours. The medicinal note is still there with coffee, orange peel and the sherry cask notes. The finish is long with oak, sherry and a touch of licorice. The medicinal touch is also there. Very well balanced Caroni and I'm going to enjoy having this one on my shelf. A bit expensive but also rare with less than 1000 bottles.”
