Exquisiter 94er Caroni. Klassisches Profil mit ordentlich Dreck, dazu aber eine austarierte Süsse, Holz, Gewürze, Kaffee, Lakritz und mineralische Noten. Die Hangar-Serie ist definitiv Caroni-Spitzenklasse.

This one is like a hammer if you don't let it rest. I found it to be best after 45 minuts of rest after which the ABV stops biting into the flavours. The nose is alcoholic of not rested, light wood with rubber, tar, apple, licorice and light floral notes. The palate is also alcoholic if not rested with wood, rubber, tar trailed by vanilla, leather, licorice and light caramel and earthy notes. The finish is long is woody with spice, caramel and light leather. As I mentioned, this rum really needs to rest in order to release all flavours and settle on the ABV.

Für mich der Gewinner der 94er. Kräftig, etwas runder, viel Caroni-DNA!

Greatest 1994 so far. Nose is very complex and, therefore, amazing. Mouth is slightly less complex but still great with more 1996 notes. 👏 Velier

Richtig klasse! Dem Yellow Caroni natürlich erst mal sehr ähnlich, allerdings nicht so deep und intensiv. Ich finde den Yellow Caroni richtig gut, allerdings braucht man bei solch einer intensiven Fassreifung definitiv den richtigen Tag. Dieses "Problem" hat man mit diesem hier nicht, was ihn wesentlich "alltagstauglicher" macht. Auch mit 5 Jahre weniger tropischer Reifung, hat man hier trotzdem hochintensive, tiefe, reife und komplexe Aromen, sowohl in der Nase als auch im Gaumen. Was sich der Caroni Nerd wünscht, bekommt er hier definitiv
