Very interesting unique rum! He has a dominant smell of Rubber/Tar with some notes of liquorice and mint. Very cool intense mouthfeeling of Rubber/Tar and a lot more. It has a very long finish, a mouthfeel like a truck full of tar and mint unloaded in your mouth 🤪PN: you’ll love it, If you like those tastes, otherwise you‘ll hate it! Update: My favorite „Caroni“! 😎 intense, most intense, THE BEAST

There is a reason why they called this rum The Beast. A true Caroni all the way from the nose to the dry finish. A single cask that yielded only 239 bottles and the barrel leaves a nice imprint on this rum from the colour, which is almost black, to the palate and finish. A high priced rum but we'll worth it.

Zu bitter und zu viel Minze. Fehlgeschlagenes Experiment mit Zuckerkcouleur.

Intense Caroni/gasoline notes on the nose accompanied by mint and some red fruits. Dirty, smokey, bitter and intense all the way. An exceptional rum which fully lives up to its name. Not recommended as a daily sipper - a beast indeed ;)

An der Nase Gummi, rote Früchte, Menthol, Leder, Schuhcreme und sogar etwas Karamell. Am Gaumen überlagert eine eigenartige, penetrante, seifige Rosenwasser-Note alles andere. Etwas schade, weil ich ansonsten die verkohlten-fleischigen Noten wie beim Velier Guyana-Stock sehr schätze.

Sehr speziell, die Nase ist nach einiger Zeit noch vergleichsweise verhalten, auf der Zunge schlagen dann aber die Gummi- und Bitternoten ordentlich zu. Wer Caroni mag, sollte den mal probieren - für die meisten wird daraus aber wohl nicht mehr als ein interessanter Exkurs.

Puuuh, der Name ist Programm. The Beast liefert eine unglaublich spannende Nase, sehr komplex und auch eindeutig Caroni. Verbranntes Gummi, Teer und auch schon ordentlich Holz und Tannine. So viel Lust die Nase macht, so brachial kommt der Gaumen daher. Auch hier eindeutige Caroni-Noten, die ein kurzfristig tolles Geschmackserlebnis liefern, aber nach kurzer Zeit von Omas Eichenschrank erschlagen werden. So viel Holz und Tannine, dass es mir persönlich zu extrem ist. Behält man ihn zu lange im Mund, wird es immer bitter und trockener, wie Mokka oder pures Kakaopulver. Das ist mir doch zu arg…

Nur im Abgang dezent Zitrusfrüchte, sonst ganz auf der bitter-würzigen Seite mit viel Gummi. Fast wie flüssiger Grillkäse. Besonders im Mund Schwarztee und angenehme Kräuter. Etwas Menthol wie in Zahnpasta, aber die, die man essen möchte. Besonders im Abgang noch etwas Zigarre. Ein sehr interessanter Caroni der nur Leuten schmecken wird die es eher bitter mögen.

Eigentlich ohne Wertung... Wobei mir die Nase eigentlich noch recht gut gefällt, aber dann: für mich fast untrinkbar! Vielleicht vergleichbar mit extrem bitterer, kräutriger Zahnpasta mit viel Minze/Menthol, ein Erlebnis der besonderen Art😄
