“I had the unique opportunity yesterday to compare this rum with other 98s, including Paradise #2. Compared to the tropically aged Caroni, the continental aged ones do fall off a bit. Alcohol is very present, dirty notes, bourbon, wood, tobacco.”

“I just secured my VIP ticket for the German Rum Festival 2022 in Berlin so I opened this sample. Pretty good and at release the price matched the quality. Slightly lighter on the Caroni notes than the heavy ones, but still pretty good. The nose has dried fruit, rubber and tar right off the bat followed by roasted wood, leather and a nice tobacco note. The palate is intense and complex yet well balanced with dried fruit, rubber and tar trailed by robacco and light caramel. The finish is long, intense and warm with tobacco and light nuttyness.”

“Wird hintenraus wirklich gut. Der Geruch und Anfang sehr zurückhaltend für die 65%. Haben ihn mit dem Bristol Haromex 1998 verglichen und diesen schlägt er trotz der deutlich mehr % nur knapp. Aber trotz alledem ein schöner kontinentaler Caroni, der alles bietet an dreckigen Tönen was man erwartet.”
