Die Farbe ist schon mal ein Traum… Erwartungsgemäß eine dichte, volle, ausgewogene Caroni-Nase. Lack, viel verkohlte Eiche, Teer und Gummi. Dahinter volles Karamell und schöne Kakaonoten. Toll! Im Mund die volle Ladung, viel Holz und Gewürze. Langer Abgang, wieder viel Holz. Wieder hohes Niveau, wie erwähnt tolle Nase, im Mund etwas eindimensional. Trotzdem ein Erlebnis.

I'm in heaven I can remember thinking while sampling these wonderful rums :-) The nose on this one has the roasted oak, tar and rubber trailed by fruit and caramel and a hint of vanilla. The palate continues where the nose left off. A heavy well balanced rum with roasted oak, tar, rubber and fruit closely trailed by vanilla, chocolate and light leather. The finish is long with roasted oak and a nice mix of spices and caramel and a hunt of rubber.

The best Caroni for me (so far!). 😄

Das Alter ist erkennbar, aber ohne dem Rum eine zu dominante Bitternote aufzudrücken. Schöne Süsse, Holz, Würze - einzig die dreckigen Caroninoten könnten noch etwas präsenter sein. Reiht sich aber nahtlos in die Serie exzellenter Caronis von Velier ein und bestätigt deren Ausnahmestellung unter der Flut an Releases aus der Destille.

Schmeckt wie eine dreckige Autowerkstatt. Sehr intensiv bitter metallisch und eine leichte Menthol Note
