Caroni 11 yo Murray McDavid

caroni mmd

The Rum: Caroni 11 yo – 46 abv

Origin: Trinidad and Tobago

Distilled: not indicated

Bottled: by Murray McDavid

Nose: Very fine molasses and gummy bears, evolving towards slightly more acid notes

Taste: The rather sweet rum is having a desperate fight with the more acid-fruity notes of the cask. There is verry little consistency; the taste is really jumping to all directions.

Finish: Gets rather bitter in an unpleasant way. And just when you think the finish is finally gone, it gets back…with a vengeance. The finish is rather long – and that’s definutely no good point here.

Our Score: 13/20

Remarks: This Caroni – normally one of my favourite rums, was Bourboncask matured + Madeiracask matured; and Malmsey cask finished. And that seems to have been a rather bad idea.
