Tasting Notes by Roger Caroni

Colour: Superb mahogany ...

Nose: We quickly find the markers of the famous distillery, namely a garage oil side, dirty and burnt with aromas of rubber, leather, hyrdocarbon and chocolate.

The caramel is creamy and slightly salty, to which will be added cadied citrus fruits, apricot in a compote, blood orange, pineapple.

The 22 years in cask have calmed down the rum, this one is limited creamy on the nose... well I don't know if it is said ais that's what I feel.

Really the kind of elegance that I only find on the Caroni of some Bristol, the 1989 coming directly to my mind. And with me, that means a lot.

I think I had already fallen in love with this rum before I even soaked my lips in it.

Palate: The palate is marked by fine oak, powdered chocolate, slight bitterness due to long aging and also a fruity freshness.

It;s liverly, without loosening your back teeth, it's creamy, greedy and dirty, just right.

If I had to describe this mouth I would say balanced because nothing seems to take up more space than expected. Everyone is in their place, without wanting to pass in front of the other for the final photo.

We find the delicay of marzipan, the fruity limit tropical with a hint of mango and pineapple coupled with citrus and apricots.

The oak is represented by milk chocolate, rubber, tobacco and more leather.

The long and elegant finish is sour and chocolatey ...

Conclusion: What do you want me to tell you … pwa that’s fucking good! 

So yes, it is not a « true » Caroni following the thougths of Luca … But for me, clearly it is a real Caroni, just worked differently.

The rum was distilled at Caroni, aged at Caroni as well as in English coldness for a double mastered aging. The word mastered has all its importance in this case.

Clearly, we feel that the years spent in the tropics have allowed the juice to assert itself, the years in Europe to calm down and become more complex in calm.

This rum is a true testament to what Caroni is, it is accessible in terms of tasting, complex without being wild … A daily dram with balls, shall we say.
