The poured glass from my freshly opened bottle smelled as if I just stepped into a workshop where someone fooled around with rubber, plastic, oil and dirt. Delicious! The rum settled down a little after 30 minutes in the glass to reveal the classic Caroni taste profile. I loved the woody licorice finish.

Porté sur le fumé, la viande épicée ! ça me rappelle le "tasting gang". Très bon mais manque un peu de profondeur peut être. Reste très bon en tout cas. Après 45min d'aération la profondeur fait son apparition 👌. les saveurs s'entremêlent très joliement et le résultat surpasse de loin la première bouche. Décidément l'aération est vraiment très importante sur ce type de rhum.

Nase: Teer, Malz und rauchige Aromen, erinnern an Whisky. Gaumen: Alkohol dominiert den Beginn rückt dann zugunsten von Gummi-, Teer- und würzigen Noten in den Hintergrund. Leichte Fruchtaromen sind auch zu vernehmen bevor mehr und mehr die rauchigen Aromen gewinnen. Der vollmundige Auftritt hinterlässt einen ordentlichen Pelz im Mund. Abgang: Das Rauchige und Verkohlte hält sich minutenlang, wird beizeiten durch Cola ergänzt. Fazit: Caronitypische Aromen sind allgegenwärtig, wenngleich die Intensität deutlich hinter anderen Caronis zurück bleibt.
