Beim Degustieren dieses Caronis fühle ich mich sofort in das stillgelegte Lokdepot einer oft besuchten karibischen Zuckerfabrik versetzt, in welcher der typische Geruch von diversen öligen, teerigen Substanzen in der Luft liegt (die dort abgestellten Dampflokomotiven wurden mit Schwerölen befeuert, die alten Holzschwellen könnten noch mit Teerkreosot imprägniert worden sein). Rums, die mich an geliebte Orte erinnern, mag ich besonders. Dieser gehört also definitiv dazu. Fantastisch! Großen Dank an Distilia für das tolle Sample auf dem 11. GRF in Berlin!

Toller Caroni aus 1999! Eher fruchtig mit viel Gummi. I like!

1er SC caroni pour moi et je n'ai pas du tout été déçu. Les notes de goudrons, colle, pétrole sont la mais très bien équilibré et des notes fruités apparaissent avec aération. La finale est longue et magique 😍

Schöner komplexer Caroni mit deutlichen dreckig-fruchtigen Noten und viel Power!

Nice nose, but finish is way too bitter and unbalanced to my taste. I had to dilute to about 48% to make it drinkable. Otherwise it was too hot, pungent and bitter. Apart from these downsides, it’s quite nice.
