  • Colour: amber. Nose: a notch fruitier, more stewed and jammy, but once again the nuances are tiny at 60% vol. Flower jams? With water: a tad tighter than the previous one. Brinier yet? Some carbon dust perhaps… Mouth (neat): salted caramel, seawater, and the largest bag of liquorice there ever was. With water: very salty, almost smoky at times. I remember some ultra-young Ardbegs at the SMWS, a good 15 years ago… Finish: very long. A wee sourness in the aftertaste. Pomelos. Comments: very very good…

     

    SGP:463 - 89 points.

  • Nose: this one has more fruitiness again, but also a sour edge that holds the middle between olive brine and model glue. This fades though. Miso. Candied ginger. Whiffs of new plastics. Light pencil shavings and mentholated notes. Deep toffee as well. A bit of a slow performer, but it does convince.

    Mouth: slightly fruitier again after the Thompson Bros, with less obvious wood but really heavy tarry notes again. Bitumen. Cedar wood and dried herbs. Nice sooty notes and petrol as well. A lovely combination of industrial notes with rounder, fruity hints.

    Finish: long, dry, on pepper, cigar leaves and molasses.

    This didn’t make the best first impression, but unfolded nicely and became one of the most complex Caroni rums in this session. Still available in certain shops, like Whiskysite.nl or Whisky.lu


    Score: 91/100
