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.

Caroni 1998 HTR Cadenhead's Cask Strength Dated Distillation Cadenhead's 175th Anniversary Distilled: 12.1998 Bottled: Summer 2017 Aged 18 Years 65.8% One of 228 Bottles Pot Still Farbe: Kastanie Geruch: Vollmundig, süßlich mit Röstaromen - Toffee, Leder, Maroni und Kautabak wechseln sich mit dem Caroni-typischen Gummi ab. Hmmm da ist doch auch knusprige Schweinshaxe!? (nein ich habe gerade weder gegessen noch habe ich Hunger-Halluzinationen) Holzig, riecht genauere gesagt nach nassem Holz. Aber da sind auch Fruchtaromen: Steinobst und Pflaume in Madeira. Wird beim Stehen mit der Zeit immer süßer und leckerer. Teer und Petroleum sind da zwar auch irgendwo, stehen für mich aber nicht im Vordergrund. Geschmack: Extrem Powerful! Zunächst noch süß und ölig im Mund, mit Marmelade, Kokos und dabei erstaunlich rund. Beim Schlucken kommt dann die volle Power, hauptsächlich in Form von Gewürzen (Pfeffer) und Gummi-Geschmack. Saftig lecker mit viel Lebkuchen, flüssigem Toffeekonzentrat, Leder, Kakao, Kautabak und Holz. Abgang: Wirklich sehr lang, dabei kräftig und intensiv, würzig und ölig zugleich. Wärmt massiv und ohne Ende von ganz tief innen. Süßlich öliger Nachgeschmack. Etwas Kräuter und leicht bitter im Abgang. Fazit: Ein wirklich großartiger Rum - empfehlenswert.
