Nose has a (comparably) sweet and vanilla forward character to it. A little unexcepted on the palate. Some sweet notes again paired with raisins and dried fruits. Little bit to light on zur Dirty notes for my liking. Not bad after all.

Ein guter durchschnittlicher Caroni mit den erforderlichen Aromen, aber nicht ganz ausgewogen! Der Alkohol ist relativ präsent und für meinen Geschmack zu wenig Teer und Frucht, dafür aber etwas zu viel Holz!

An der Nase Gummi, Eiche, Karamell und Fruchtbonbon. Am Gaumen Fahrradschlauch, Teer, Tannine, Espresso. Der Alkohol ist sowohl an der Nase als auch am Gaumen etwas zu präsent. Kein schlechter Caroni, aber vor einem Jahr gab es für den aufgerufenen Preis auch noch den Velier 21 zu haben 🥲

Relativ hart beim ersten Sip. Guter Geschmack und schönes Caroni Profil. Alkohol ein wenig zu präsent.

Nach dem Einfüllen kam erst nichts außer etwas Holz und gebranntem Zucker aus dem Glas. Nachdem er ein paar Minuten Luft bekommen hat geht’s aber richtig los: Pfirsich und Banane begleitet von etwas Gummi. Das Holz bleibt, wird aber etwas weicher, fast wie Bourbon. Der Geruch ist süß und fruchtig, wie ein Bonbon oder Sirup. Gummi, Bitterkeit und Holz dominieren den Geschmack, begleitet von zu fein gemahlenem Espresso und Apfel. Insgesamt aber anders als in der Nase hier kaum Frucht. Nach kurzer Zeit kommt frisch geteerte Straße dazu, bevor der Espresso im Abgang in würzigen Mokka kippt. Nachdem der Geschmack größtenteils verflogen ist bleibt noch etwas mineralisches auf der Zunge, als hätte man einem Stein geleckt. Sehr lecker, nur über das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis lässt sich streiten.

Teer in Nase, aber eher an einem heißen Sommertag auf der Route 66 denn frisch geteert. Das Gummi der Motorradreifen verdunstet auch nur noch und es ist schon einige Zeit her das hier jemand gebremst hat. Für 62,3% fehlt hier einfach die Power.
