Caroni 1999 21yo Blackbeard from The Golden Age of Piracy by Distilia got 90/100 points from WhiskyNotes.be
Nose: quite industrial, with engine oil, diesel and greasy notes. Also rubbery notes and tobacco. Then it evolves on peppermint and herbal potions, as well as overripe plums and dark honey. Smoked vegetal notes and earthy wood.
Mouth: again not an easy one, but quite an explosion. Lots of herbal extracts, charred wood, mint and eucalyptus, ginger and chilli heat. More oily notes, camphor and medicinal hints. Dutch liquorice and enough tar to renew a random highway. More than a dash of Fernet Branca. Very dry, very herbal.
“This is a real pirate rum, totally unscrupulous. The intensity, the tarry notes and herbal extracts blow your socks off. A great statement and a great find.” WhiskyNotes.be
