RumX-Adventskalender, 11.12., blind, Erster Eindruck: das ist ein Caroni! Und um 60%. So ist es und den kenne ich. Schon bei Renés Raritäten für gut befunden. Das bestätigt sich jetzt nochmals. Nase: intensiv und komplex und trotzdem rund. Als erstes Caroni-typisch Teer und Jod mit angesengtem Plastik aber gleichzeitig mit einer süßen Karamell-Note und einer gewissen Fruchtigkeit, wie Kirsche mit getrockneter, geschwefelter Aprikose. Hinten noch trockener Tabak mit Vanille und einer ganz leichten Essig-Note. Gaumen: vollmundig und intensiv und echt lecker. Zunächst überwiegen Phenol und Jod mit leichter Minze, leicht gesalzen und getoastet. Dann fruchtige Johannisbeere und Limette. Hinten nochmal Gummi und leibliches Veilchen und etwas schwarzem Tee. Überraschend gut!!!

RumX-Adventskalender, 11.12.2021, blind. Eindeutig Caroni und ein sehr dreckiger Vertreter. Blind dann sogar auf diese Abfüllung festgelegt, ich find sie klasse. Ursprüngliches Review: Zum ersten Mal probiert auf dem 10. GRF in Berlin bei René van Houven, vielen Dank! Ein toller Caroni, der mich irgendwie begeistert. Sicher nicht so spektakulär wie andere Bretter, vo allem aus den bekannten großartigen Jahrgängen, überzeugt mich dieser Caroni vor allem durch seine Vielseitigkeit. Die dezente und eher fruchtige Nase geht am Gaumen über in Holz, Kaffe und andere bittere Noten und weniger deutlich, aber definitiv da ist dann auch verbanntes Gummi und Teer, So dass hier auch klar ist: Caroni! Ein halbes Fass und nur 70 Flaschen, da meldet sich der Haben-Will-Trieb!

Das ist bislang der dreckigste Caroni, den ich probieren konnte… als wenn man auf einer Lakritz-Wurzel kauen würde ! Mir zu heftig

Sehr klassisches Caroni-Profil, liegt nicht nur dem Jahrgang nach zwischen den gängigen 98er und 2000er Profilen mit deutlichen Teer- und Gumminoten gepaart mit Menthol und etwas Karamellsüsse. Positive Überraschung, eine richtig gute Abfüllung.

Rather on the dirty side. Surprisingly good Caroni imo.

RumX Adventskalender 11.12.21: Geiler Caroni. Die Essenz des Profils total drin. Nichts für jeden Tag, aber zugänglich und komplex zugleich. Mein dreckigster Caroni bisher. Hammer Adventskalender!

vielleicht fehlt ein wenig der Tiefgang der 96er Veliers, aber für mich ein extrem gut ausbalancierter Caroni!

Now I get the "Caroni tastes dirty, like tar and plastic" comments, this one at least gives me the impression that this is what people mean, when saying that.

Hat alles was ein guter Caroni mitbringen muss!

Typical tar and fermented berries in the nose. But also something herbal/cough syrop/fresh/menthol in the nose. More licorise/bay leaf in taste than in smell. Less fruity. Thick syropy stuff. Weird but tasty and interesting. An a-typical Caroni.
