The tasting journey this rum provides is both intricate and intense; aromas of smoky tar mingle with dried fruit and a touch of menthol. When sipped, its robust character unfolds with flavors of tar, rubber, and smoke enriched by dried fruit notes. While many from the RumX community appreciate its rich Caroni character, a few believe it might benefit from more balance. Behind this exceptional rum stands Lion’s Whisky SRL, stemming from Diego Sandrin’s passion for whisky.
A Venetian company, it’s a branch of a grand Holding, and Sandrin’s personal collection showcases over 15,000 premium bottles, a portion of which graces their online store, with others to be introduced as market demands.
