“Klassischer, sehr guter 98er Caroni, einzig der etwas präsente Alkohol bedingt Abzüge in der B-Note. Davon abgesehen eine absolut überzeugende Abfüllung, auch wenn es nicht zu den allerhöchsten Weihen reicht.”

“Tasted in a restaurant. A surprisingly sweet nose with tar, walnut and old leather in which one has sweated.The palate is also quite sweet once the bite of the alcohol has disappeared. Still that old leather and a little tar. It's like being in a tanner's workshop in the Middle Ages, with tar boiling in the corner. The finish is long on wood and licorice-like notes, and there's a hint of tropical fruit, especially banana and pineapple.A rum that takes you back in time, I really like it. Perhaps not Caroni's best, but a rum where the workshop is not mechanical but a tanner's.”
