Danke für die 2. Möglichkeit diesen Rum im Glas zu haben. Sicher sind die tropischen Veliers noch einen Tacken geiler, aber nichtsdestotrotz hat man hier flüssige Geschichte im Glas. Geiles Zeug.

Extrem spannend einen Caroni aus 1974 trinken zu können. Habe das Sample vor einigen Monaten erhalten und auf den richtigen Moment gewartet. Natürlich würde ihm etwas mehr ABV gut zu Gesicht stehen, aber ich denke das kann man bei dieser Rarität verschmerzen. Danke Rik für das Sample 🙏🏼

Ein Caroni, destilliert im Jahr meiner Geburt. Die Erwartungen sind hoch... Eine tolle Nase wie aus einem Guss. Sehr dreckig, sehr, sehr geiler Lack!! Dann Früchte und schöne Holzreife mit viel Gewürzen. Im 1920s Blenders Glas auch genug Power. Er braucht auch keine Zeit zum Atmen. Im Mund ist er dann doch etwas zu schwach. Langer, holziger Abgang. 34 Jahre in den Tropen sind dann doch lange. Pure Caroni-Magie, das Bouquet.😊 Der Rest ist solala.

This is a great rum that can hurt your wallet if you find one. They're still in a few stores actually from 700 euro and up.

Sehr guter Caroni in perfekter Trinkstärke!

At first very dominant on wood and petroleum on the nose, but after letting it air for 30 minutes more subtle flowery and spicy notes appeared. The taste is sugary sweet, with again petrol, wood and spices. An unmistakeable top note of fleur d’oranger and geranium that ends in menthol. It punches above its ABV because of the menthol, making it more full-bodied than you would expect.
