Über die Nähe zwischen TDL und Caroni wurde ja durch Steffens Buch schon detailliert berichtet. Aromatisch finde ich auch hier HTR-typische Noten vor und halte deshalb einen Blend aus TDL und Caroni für wahrscheinlich. Gefällt mir sehr gut, angesichts der Rahmendaten (Alterung, Geschmacksprofil) durchaus ein Highlight für mich. Im Direktvergleich zu anderen Caronis der gehobenen Kategorie natürlich etwas im Hintertreffen.

This is not a cheap rum but we'll worth the present price tag. A nicely balanced rum with a light dry touch to the palate. I may have to add a bottle to my collection. A very old lady indeed and a good one.

Interessante „Mischung“ aus Caroni und Foursquare. Nase sehr gut. Am Gaumen kann er nicht ganz mithalten. Eine tolle Erfahrung.

Erstaunlich! Die 91er TDL, die ich kenne, waren bisher eher langweilig und gingen in Richtung Foursquare. Dieser ist eine Mischung aus einem Caroni und einem Foursquare. Auf jeden Fall spannend!
