Ich bin bei diesem Rum etwas zwiegespalten, erwartet hatte ich einen deutlichen Caronieinfluss! Von diesem ist aber nur flüchtig etwas wahrzunehmen..wenn überhaupt eher beim Abgang! An der der Nase überwiegen säuerliche Fruchtaromen, am Gaumen anfangs eine schwere Süße, die wiederum in eine leichte säuerliche Fruchtigkeit wechselt, später gesellen sich Lakritznoten mit einem Hauch von dreckigen Noten dazu. Der Abgang enthält zunächst Lakritznoten, Ansätze von Dörrobst und später ein Hauch von Teer! Der Alkohol ist kaum wahrnehmbar, etwas mehr Prozente hätten ihm sicherlich gut getan! Ich würde ihn schon fast als Sipper bezeichnen! Insgesamt ein guter Rum, nur anders als erwartet!

Im Vergleich zum Casimir GRF deutlich weniger fruchtig, mehr Holznoten, adstringierend, mehr Säure, wirkt älter. Caroni kann ich nicht wirklich rausschmecken. Schade, ich habe mir etwas mehr erwartet.

Ich glaube die Bewertungen spiegeln eher die Entäuschung derer, die dachten man schmeckt mehr Caroni wider, als den eigentlichen Geschmack des Rums. Er ist sehr schön mild und Cremig, hat aber sonst auch noch die Charaktereigenschaften des Sajous Clairins (ungefähr in dem Maße, wie im letzten Release). Kurz: Zum Release Preis top, schneckt aber nicht nach Caroni. Das Etikett dürfte Sammler ansprechen …

Pensavo che la botte di caroni gli ragalasse qualche aroma particolare in più invece rende solo più morbido il clairin! Una bevuta poco impegnativa da tutti i giorni che comunque contiene ancora tutti i profumi e gli aromi della canna da zucchero haitiana!

A little too dry and vegetal for me. Not really what I like to drink but the finish is rather nice.

Nase erinnert an Vanille-Milchshake, der über Nacht vergessen wurde. Etwas säuerlich-blumiges, aber eben auch Vanille (von Caroni keine Spur). Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden! Am Gaumen dann auch leichte Fruchtsäure, minimale Holznote, und... ja was eigentlich?! Caroni? Fehlanzeige! Rund ist er. Leichte Zitrusnote. Abgang relativ kurz. Schade, habe mir mehr erhofft. Wirkt irgendwie dünn, wo man einen Mix aus Schwergewichten erwartet. Da gefällt mir der Sajous aus dem Oloroso Fass um einiges besser! Von dem hier brauch ich keine Flasche...aber danke für das Sample 😘

Schöne Nase mit viel Frucht. Gaumen fällt dann ein bisschen ab. So oder so gefällt er gut.
