Exquisiter und stilechter HTR-Vertreter aus 1996. Mein persönlicher Favorit in der Employees-Serie.

Had a very nice Caroni tasting yesterday and what a tasting :-) This one had all the typical Caroni flavours in it while also being heavy, intense and complex. When it was released the bottle wasn't too expensive but the prices have already skyrocketed.

Eines meiner Lieblingscaroni. Obwohl es Caronis gibt, die schon länger im Fass waren, hat die tropische Reifung hier schon ordentlich zugeschlagen, sowohl im Geruch als auch im Geschmack. Ich persönlich mag das. In der Nase typisch 96, Möbelpolitur, Fahrradschlauch, getrocknete Früchte, Cocos, Pflaume. Außerdem viel Honig und Karamell. Im Mund sehr kräftig, schwer, trocken und mundfüllend. Eine leichte Süße mit etwas Honig und gebranntem Zucker. Viel Fass, Röstaromen, Kerosin, Politur und Würzigkeit, kaum noch Fruchtigkeit. Vielen könnte der schon über dem Zenit sein, ich persönlich liebe ihn

Caroni 1996 Employees First Release John “D” Eversley Heavy Rum (HTR) - Full Proof Distilled: 1996 Bottled: 2018 Aged 22 Years 66.5% One of 1192 bottles from 5 casks Farbe: Leuchtend Kirsch-Mahagoni, ölig Geruch: Cremig süß und aromatisch mit Fruchtaromen von Ananas, Pflaume und Mon Cherie Kirschen. Aromen von Lebkuchen, heißen Maroni, Kakao, Pralinen, Tabak, Nelken, Leder, Sandelholz und Bohnerwachs durchmischen sich zu einem intensiven, kräftigen Geruch. Superb! Geschmack: im Mund zunächst süß und cremig, dann würzig. Beim Schlucken dann sehr würzig. Kräftig und intensiv im Geschmack mit sehr viel Lakritze. Das sind beinahe zu viele Eindrücke auf einmal: Zunächst süß, dann Kautabak und Lakritze, dann Tee-Extrakt, dann Ananas, dann bitteres altes Holz mit Baumrindensud. Abgang: Sehr lang, wärmt von tief innen. Lakritze, Schwarztee- und Holz-Extrakt. Im Nachgeschmack trocken und dabei leicht bitter. Fazit: Ein fantastischer tropisch gereifter Caroni, der allerdings nach meinem Geschmack nicht ganz an die allerbesten heran reicht. 91 Punkte
