Adoro i Caroni, li adoro così tanto che mi risulta difficile essere imparziale. Non mi dilungherò perché tanto sarebbero solo parole da tifoseria! Bel Caroni, ma sicuramente ci sarà di meglio. Purtroppo per motivi economici non posso permettermi rum altamente costosi come i Caroni degli anni 80.

This is a slightly different Caroni and I love it. The nose is dark, musty and woody with rubber, tar, leather and berries trailed by licorice, tobacco, cocoa and caramel. A very nice nose once rested. With water the flavours are even clearer. The palate complex well balanced and elegant at the same time. I get tropical fruits, tar, rubber and a lot of wood and smoke/roasted notes trailed by leather, vanilla and a light salty note. The finish is long and has smoky wood, tar and slightly more salty than the palate.

Au nez, côté orange confite / caramel beurre salé, fumé. C’est moins pétrole/lourd que les 2 autres que j’ai goûté mais plus fruité. En bouche, côté aqueux, moins riche en arôme que les 2 autres.

Caroni 1997 Bristol Classic Rum Trinidad HTR Heavy Type Rum Distilled: 1997 Bottled: 31.05.2017 Aged 20 Years 61.5% Farbe: Umbra Geruch: Zu Beginn süß und fruchtig. Riecht nach leckerem Toffee, heissen Maroni, aber auch Hustensaft, Maschinen- und Altöl. Geschmack: im Mund vor allem Lakritze. Beim Schlucken dann sehr kräftig, intensiv und würzig. Schmeckt nach Hustensaft und Baumrinde. Abgang: Sehr lang, wärmt von tief innen. Würzig nach Pfeffer, Ingwer und Lakritze. Leicht bitter im Nachgeschmack. Sehr trocken im Abgang. Fazit: Sehr leckerer Caroni vom HTR-Typ. Die sonst bei Caroni häufigen Noten von Teer und Asche fehlen für mich weitgehend ... vielleicht im Abgang etwas. Gummi und Fahrradschlauch, wie ebenfalls häufig geschrieben wird, kann ich mit meinen Tasting Notes schon eher vereinbaren. 88 Punkte

Ein sehr extremer Rum, der einem die Socken auszieht. Entweder man liebt ihn oder man hasst ihn. Genial!
