“Da hat das Caroni-Fass aber ganze Arbeit geleistet! Könnte mir fast vorstellen, dass da noch eine gute Restfeuchte enthalten war. Die frischen T.D.L-Aromen (Minze,Menthol,Eukalyptus) sind zwar noch wahrnehmbar, ebenso eine gebrannte Karamell -Süsse … aber das war es dann auch. Der Rest ist ein schönes kräftiges dreckiges Caroniaroma. Mir gefällt es gut… Blind hätte ich auf einen reinen, aber schwächeren Caroni getippt”

“Uiuiui ... The Caroni finish is clearly noticeable... lots of dirty notes in the nose ... Dried fruit, chocolate, tar, rubber, some leather polish and a pleasant sweetness. The rum needs easily a 3/4h time rather more ... On the palate there is first an oily sweetness ... immediately comes a brutal smoky note that I don't like at all (I don't like smoky at all) ... this remains almost alone on the tongue for a long time ... A little later there is some fruit and bitterness (rubber, leather), very light mint and some barrel. For me, however, the smokiness predominates, which personally pushes the points down. Without this smoky influence it would certainly have been an 85+. Alcohol perfectly integrated.”

“First of all, I looked up what I had noted in the other two 2005 TDLs I had tasted so far (Rhum Attitude, Swell PG #4). There were yellow fruits, floral, subtle menthol and buttery cookies. This one is clearly different, much more on dirty notes (bicycle inner tube, tar, engine room). The Caroni cask has clearly left its mark. Also dried fruit and caramel. I would be blind here without any problems with Caroni. Charred barrel on the palate and the torched remains of the old tire dealer, almost like the 94 Velier Guyana Stock. But I think it's good 😁One minus point for the finish, which is too salty for me...”
