Harsh for a 12 year old rum
21 Aug '17
Ron Carupano Oro 12 year old rum was sampled last year while vacation in Caracas, and this rum was quite a disappointment. Strong alcohol smell, no flavors clearly identifiable and very strong burn at the end. There are easily 50 better aged 12 year old rums out there for you to explore than Carupano.

Color entre ámbar y oro. Delicado en nariz, con entornos yodados y extraordinarios aromas a caramelo y almendras. mejor es disfrutarlo en las rocas o realizar un cóctel como el old fashioned. insuperable en sabor y olor. 100% ron de Venezuela.
I compare this with a lot 12 years old rums... this, is the strongest of all, very heavy body and strong entrance... in 2016 was the best 12 year rum in world in 12 years aged category, highly recommended
My first try was almost my last. A lot of alcohol in the aftertaste and nothing deep. However, having saved half a bottle for some time really helped the rum. It had gotten darker and the flavours opened up nicely
