Il migliore della serie a mio gusto! Intenso complesso una parte vegetale, una parte agrumata mischiata a frutti tropicali e una un po’ più amara fornita dalla botte! Karukera con le sue botti si conferma sempre uno dei migliori!

Un rhum de Guadeloupe de haut niveau, qui débute avec superbe bouquet de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes au nez, suivi de notes plus végétales, épicées et terreuses qui offrent un profil olfactif complet, harmonieux et très agréable. L’attaque en bouche est intense, avec des notes végétales et épicées marquées, mais les arômes de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes viennent se glisser sur le palais pour adoucir et donner de la profondeur à ce produit, auquel s’ajoutent le cacao, les amandes grillées et la cannelle. L’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale est longue, tantôt terreuse et végétale, tantôt épicée, tantôt fruitée, rappelant fidèlement le profil au nez et en bouche. Un très bon rhum, certes honéreux mais qui se veut aromatique, complexe et intense comme un bon rhum agricole.

Der gefällt mir gut! Eine frische fruchtige Nase mit leichtem Zuckerrohr! Am Gaumen anfangs eine schwere Zuckerrohrsüße bevor er sich cremig im Mund verteilt! Jetzt kommen die würzigen Anteile durch! Je länger er im Mund verweilt kommen die kräftigeren Aromen durch, gepaart mit etwas Mandarinenschale! Sehr lecker! Der Abgang ist mittellang mit den typischen grasigen Noten! Ein gut zu trinkender Agricole

In den Karukera habe ich aus der 3er Serie die größten Hoffnungen gesteckt und tatsächlich: er liefert das beste Gesamtpaket. Schöne Nase und insgesamt ein leckerer Rum, wenn auch etwas teuer und außerdem furztrocken am Gaumen. Die (für mich persönlich) sehr schöne Flasche macht das aber in Teilen wieder wett.

Dunkle Schokolade, verbranntes Holz, dazu aber einen spannender Gegenpol von Zucker, Nougat und Gewürzen. Durchaus komplexes Profil, das aber hintenraus etwas zu sehr in den würzig-bitteren Bereich abkippt. Für Rum-Liebhaber mit grösserem Agricole-Faible als ich es habe aber sicher ein spannender Rum.

Sehr geile Nase mit viel Frucht, Geschmacklich dann erstmal sehr bitter und adstringierend. Erinnert stark an Grapefruit Schale, Bitterorange und zu stark verbrannte/karamellisierte Creme brulée. Muss man aber schon Bock drauf haben, die Bitterkeit ist schon sehr präsent aber im Abgang belohnt er einen mit Frucht und Karamell.

Ein leckeres Fruchtjoghurt in das man die Nase aber nicht zu tief stecken darf. Ich werde leider eine alkoholische Note trotz des leckeren Geschmack nicht los, was zur Abwertung führt.
