As other reviewers have noted, this is a good Caroni for people that otherwise don't care for Caroni.

Smells and tastes of charred oak, caramel, bourbon, spice, and tar. A nice rum from Caroni! A low 8 score for me.


Dejlig rom som ikke er tilsat sukker - har en god eftersmag som holder ved


Dufter af brændt gummi og opløsningsmidler. Typisk whisky duft.
Smagen er fuldstændig som den dufter.
Jeg lærer det sku nok aldrig. Endnu en skuffelse


Tämligen lättdrucken med mycket olika smaker, lite citrustoner men ganska kort smak. Överlag god.


I just love these rums with no additives (sugar, colour etc. ).
I was very excited about tasting my first Caroni. This one didnt let me down.
Very fruity and sweet oak on the nose.
Balanced heavy and lite on the pallet, with oak, tar, caramel - a nice dry finish.

JD-test: 0-5 g/l sugar and 43,5 %ABV


If you're curious about trying rums from the Caroni distillery (closed 2002) but have been intimidated by their typical descriptions...lacquer, fresh leather, cigar box, acetone, burnt rubber...then this would be a great place to start. It's a "kinder, gentler" version of full-on, take-no-prisoners Caronis. This one has all the characteristics of real Trinidad rum (no, Angostura doesn't count) but the presentation is much smoother, less fiery, less intense. Still, it's full of flavor and very easy to enjoy straight up. Very good indeed.


My first Bristol Classic and this Caroni delivered.
Had high expectations and it certainly lived up to those.
Strong alcohol burn, but very pleasant, some ripe bananas, oak and caramel were the dominant flavors for me.
Not what you get when you order an Angostura rum nowadays!
The bottle suggested trying it over ice, so did try it with a cube too.
This removed the typical burn and watered it down too much, eventhough it did release some lighter flavors.
Would now like to try the Caroni 1974 and some of the other rums bottled by Bristol Classics.


Heavy and demanding bourbon Rum, the taste is really strong with long afterburn. A must for bourbon lovers. Really good when compering against other more neutral Rums.


excellent rhum ! Puissant, type barrel ! À allonger d'un peu d'eau pour en découvrir toutes les saveurs ! Un collector !


Caroni 1996 Trinidad Rum er en tør rom med en kraftig duft af brændt fad - ikke en rom for begyndere.


Den er dejlig maskulin med duft og smag af gummi og benzin blandet med en dejlig krydret sødme, som kommer snigende.
God smagsoplevelse.
Et genkøb.


spiced, a hint of coffee and vanilla, very long the final


Questo rum ha uno spiccato senso alcolico accompagnato da un graduale aroma di melassa, caffe' e una sottile nota di vaniglia
In bocca il sapore unico e pastoso di questo nettare avvolge le papille gustative quasi addormentandole, e si percepiscono forte i tannini della botte che saggiamente lo ha conservato ed una nota presente di tostatura di caffe' che nel finale rimane dolce tale da non disturbare.Ma la vera e strabiliante sorpresa la lascia nel finale dove in bocca il suo ricordo rimane per lunghissimo tempo!!!!!!
