I think I’ve had maybe 4-5 rums ever—-none of which I liked except for a Caroni. I found them overly sweet, an almost artificial sweetener taste. The Caroni, on the other hand, I absolutely loved. It was viscous, oily, and whisky-like complex. This comes in second. It’s very “unlike rum”...not sweet at all. Herbal , engine oil nose, followed by walnut skins, cocoa, and a bit of a spicy cinnamon after taste. Really well made...it’s not a Caroni level, but damn close (and much more affordable). Thanks to @jonwilkinson7309 for the sample!
