  • Intro:

    This is a bottling of Caroni distillate by Velier. It was aged for 17 years in the Caribbean - both pre and post acquisition by Velier when Caronis stocks were bought up.

  • Nose:

    Rich fruits, funky, rotten banana and papaya. Brown sugar, burning rubber, floral, loaded with honey. Some effervescent lemon.

  • Taste:

    Medium to thick mouth feel. Sweet honey, vanilla icing, brown sugar. Hot. Good bit of heat. Rich burning rubber, astringent pepper and oak. Some plastic-y character. Faint rotting fruits.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium mouthfeel. Really nice brown sugar, mango and banana and oak. A little astringent on the finish, though.

  • Overall:

    I liked this, but couldnt help but be disappointed by the overarching astringency and bitter plastic note. It wasnt plastic like a super funky Hampden or even some Islays, but a bitter artificial plastic note, which doesnt sit particularly well with me. I may be over emphasizing that specific flaw, but I still thought this was well done, and enjoyable to, well....enjoy.
