This was the final one of the batch and was getting a bit tipsy after this one. To be honest we went back and had seconds, so I was lucky I had a driver to bring me home. The nose is full os roasted oak with tar, rubber and fruit coming in second. Caramel and light vanilla are trailing along. The palate is also kind of heavy on roasted oak with tar and rubber with fruit closely behind. Caramel and a light touch of vanilla finishes off the palate. The finish is long with roasted wood, rubber and mango with a touch of vanilla.

Wunderschöne Nase, sehr ausgewogen, intensive Holzreife und Würze, etwas Kokosnuss verleiht einen spanischen Einschlag. Schöne, fette Karamellnoten. Im Mund dann sehr, sehr holzig. Megawürzig (Wacholder, Maggi, Lakritze) und bitter. Langer Abgang. Die brachiale Ladung Holz und Gewürze muss man mögen. Mir persönlich gefällt er sehr gut. Das Highlight ist sicher die Nase.

Leider nicht mein Fall. Viel Wacholder, Holz und Bitterkeit.

Hat eine überraschende Nuance von Fruchtestern, aber natürlich bleibt der Caroni-Stil unverkennbar. Hohes Niveau.

An der Nase zwar künstlicher wirkend und unauffälliger als die beiden anderen der Reihe, aber am Gaumen überzeugt mich der Rum mehr. Er erinnert mich hier wegen des Geschmacks nach einem würzigen (roten) Nadelextrakt merkwürdigerweise an den kürzlich releasten WP von RA - und der hat mir gegen den Strom sehr gefallen. Kurzum: Der Gaumen reißt die Schwäche der Nase wieder raus und deshalb bekommt der Rum von mir genauso wie die beiden anderen der Reihe 90 Punkte.

First time ever I’ve smelled and tasted Pine in a rum! Very interesting! Small sips recommended! 😉
