Finde ihn sehr gut. Süffig. Nicht dreckig, eher rund. In der nicht beißenden Nase eindeutig rote Früchte. Brombeere!!! 😋 Im geleerten Glas rieche ich Schuhcreme. Am Gaumen einfach nur ein gefälliger, nicht sehr typischer Caroni, der nicht weh tun will. Empfehlung! Update 19.06.2022: Kann im Direktvergleich mit den Velier Caroni Employees 6th natürlich nicht mithalten, einfach blasser, deshalb 3 Punkte Abwertung auf immer noch sehr gute 87 Punkte. Update 09.07.2022: Letzte Tropfen aus der Flasche. Entdecke im Abgang eine feine erdige, wurzelige Note. 😋 Es wäre ungerecht, nicht aufzuwerten - also finalmente 88 points! 👏

Ich hatte gestern die einmalige Gelegenheit diesen Rum mit anderen 98er, unter anderem den Paradise #2 zu vergleichen. Im Vergleich zu den tropisch gereiften Caroni fallen die kontinental gereiften doch etwas ab. Alkohol ist trotz der gar nicht so hohen Prozentzahl sehr präsent, dreckige Noten, Nuss, Bourbon, Holz, Tabak.

Mal wieder: Caroni ist einfach genial. Hier einer der Fruchtigeren. Nase: lieblich-fruchtig-würzig-rauchig. Als erstes kommt so ein schöner tropischer Fruchtmix aus Papaya, Passionsfrucht und Kiwi/Stachelbeere mit Limette und Mandarine. Dazu eine Süße von Honig und Sirup. Dahinter gleich eine dezente aber deutliche Rauch-Note, leicht verbrannt mit Gummi oder Plastik. Ich finde weiter etwas Essig und eine leicht seifige Komponente. Schöne Vanille mischt sich mit etwas Pfeffer, Tabak und zartem Anis. Gefällt mir sehr gut. Gaumen: lecker, rauchig-salzig-süß. Da ist es dann wieder, dieses liebliche Plastik-Teer-Politur-Gemisch. Dazu Zitronenschale und eine angenehme Nougat-Süße. Grüner Apfel und Papaya, dazu Leder und Tabak. Im Abgang bleibt er ledrig, leicht verbrannt mit grünem Apfel. 👍👍

Konnte den in einem Shop in einer kleinen Probe versuchen. Fand das da geschmacklich, wenig bis kein Caroni rauskam. War relativ rund und mehr bei einem Whisky. Viellicht war die Probe aber einfach zu klein (+-1cl)

Ein angenehmer guter und leicht trinkbarer Caroni!

Il est bon celui-ci ! Mais ça cogne là dedans et ça pete dans tous les sens. Un melange de caoutchouc goudron tabac et fruits tropicaux très mûrs. Superbe

Schöner Einsteiger Caroni Denke mit ein paar mehr % wäre da noch mehr drin gewesen. Für einen Caroni wirklich ein Easy Sipper nach ca. 30 Minuten im Glas.

Sehr guter Rum, aber kein sehr guter Caroni. Zu Rund und gewöhnlich wenn auch der Alkohol gut eingebunden und der Tropfen allgemein recht komplex ist.
