Caroni-Essenz und flüssige Geschichte! Es fehlt aber an Tiefe und Komplexität. Ist das wirklich ein HTR? 😏

Eine Art Quintessenz des Caroni-Profils - Teer, Gummi, Holz. An der Nase noch Dreck pur, am Gaumen kommt eine dezente Süsse dazu. Das spielt in Nase und Mund auf hohem Niveau, aber im Vergleich zu anderen Caronis der absoluten Topliga geht mir das etwas zu stark zu Lasten der Komplexität.

This one is heavy and I took down a note on it besides the fact that I loved the tannins in the finish and the Caroni flavours. I should have bought a few extra bottles when release because the cost has increased more than tenfold.

34 anni ai tropici si sentono tutti! Un rum iconico dove ci sono tutte le note distintive di caroni! Ha bisogno di molto tempo per aprirsi ma si rivela sublime!

Ein Brett! Dreckige Caroni Noten gepaart mit einer leichten fruchtigen Süße. Langer Abgang!
