Though heavy qnd intense this one was a bit lighter on the rubber and tar notes than the others. On the other hand it's very well balanced. Again light fruit and I love the caramel in the back. What a lovely tasting and I look forward to our next planned Caroni tasting.

Caroni Velier Caroni Employees Special Edition 2nd Release David “Sarge” Charran Heavy Rum - Full Proof Distilled: 1996 Bottled: 2019 Aged 23 Years 66.5% Blend of 4 Casks One of 953 Bottles Fully matured in Trinidad Farbe: Leuchtendes Mahagoni, dunkle Kirsch-Marmelade Geruch: Schwere fruchtige Süße. Fängt wirklich sehr intensiv an, dann wird der Geruch etwas schwächer. Riecht sehr fruchtig nach Rosinen, Früchtebrot, überreifer Ananas, Orange, Brombeeren, Mon Cherie und Rum-Trauben-Nuss Schokolade. Zudem Toffee und Lebkuchen. Mit Wasser wird er schokoladiger. Einfach superb im Geruch! Geschmack: Wow - lecker! Im Mund cremig-süß nach Fudge. Beim Schlucken süß, vollmundig und schwer, eine Explosion von Gewürzen, Lakritze und Toffee. Zudem Sandelholz. Mit Wasser wird er weicher mit mehr Toffee und Schokolade. Abgang: Würzig mit etwas Menthol. Wärmt von tief innen. Sehr lang und befriedigend, dabei würzig-scharf. Trocken und holzig im Nachgeschmack ... die 23 Jahre im Holz zeigen ihre Wirkung. Mit Wasser wird er holziger und trockener. Fazit: Der Hammer! Unglaublich komplex und umglaublich lecker. Besser als der John “D” Eversley. Einer der besten Rums, die ich bisher probieren durfte. Schmeckt mit und ohne Wasser, wobei ich ihn pur etwas besser finde. 93 Punkte
