We did it. This one is to celebrate our baroque feast, our community which never closed up into itself, the team always playing forward.  Our orchestra which is always open to new talent has identified a new great soloist. It reaches us from 1997 and it is a Caroni rum - one of the last. You all know the story of course. Or actually, you will have heard of it: the madness of a government dismantling its own distillery, the lost barrels found full of a rum like very few others in the world, able to speak to a niche of chosen few. We say: we prefer legends when they become concrete reality. And therefore, in our Caroni we detect a powerful and slightly disquieting opening of hydrocarbons, but immediately after a more delicate dose of rubber and black fruit. Then coffee, forest wood and a good length of black pepper. A lively mouth, one much more alive than what the nose had given prelude to. There is milk chocolate, coconut, dates, menthol.
