Degustato da un amico. Molto buono, adoro i Caroni! Non ho sentito l'invecchiamento in botte di sherry. Troppo leggero.

Pleasantly surprised by a rather nice Caroni nose despite the low ABV - somewhat bolstered by the sherry finish I guess. The rest is basically a classic disappointing watered-down-low-ABV Caroni feel. Again somewhat supported by the finish, lifting this one above other 40% Bristols.

liegt für mich auf dem Niveau des 98er Bristol Classic, und deutlich über dem Felicite. Die holzigen, röstigen Noten aus der Eiche/Sherry-Fassreifung kompensieren gut für den niedrigen ABV.

Genau das Richtige für einen entspannten Sommerabend! Morgen kann ich auch wieder mit den schweren Jungs fighten. Aber heute ist eben mal ein Leichtgewicht dran. Macht richtig Spaß! 🤗

Un caroni relativement simple mais très efficace !

Richtig gut, wenn‘s mal ein unkomplizierter Caroni sein soll. 🥃

Die Nase mit etwas Gummi, Teer und getrockneten Früchten war eigentlich ziemlich einladend, im Mund denkt man dann aber als erstes an verwässert und der Abgang ist eigentlich nur noch Tee. Der gleiche Rum wäre mit höherem Alk. Gehalt interessant.

Gerade die Rauchkomponente hebt diesen Rum aus der Masse heraus, sowohl aromatisch wie geschmacklich, sehr interessant

Etwas dünn, aber geschmacklich hat nicht schlecht! Erinnert an den 98er Jahrgang!
