Bringt das ganze Paket - elegante Süsse, dreckige Noten, Würze, Holz…sensationelle Tiefe. Für mich einer der besten Vertreter überhaupt aus der legendären Destille - Caroni-Olymp.

Tolle Nase! Am Gaumen komplex, etwas typische dreckige Caroninoten, die sehr gut eingebunden sind! Laaanger Abgang! Phantastisch!

More on the dirty and woody side of things on the nose. Nicely balanced on the palate and the finish. Very nice bottling - outstanding stuff even compared to other priced Caronis. Cheers to Jakob for the sample 🙂

This is a great Caroni and you know as soon as you open the bottle. The flavours just come at you right away. The nose is elegant and typical Caroni with tar and rubber trailed by flowers, fruit, caramel and a hint of mocha and cinnamon. The palate is spicy and complex and very well balanced, again with the typical Caroni tar and rubber trailed by fruit, wood and a slight hint of menthol. The finish is forever and lightly dry with fruit, tar and wood spices. I recommend leaving the empty glass and then nose it after a few hours.

Für mich der bis Dato beste Caroni und absoluter Nr 1 Rum. Hier bekommt man Caroni Essenz.... Hoch konzentrierte, intensive, tiefe und komplexe Nase. Viel Möbelpolitur wie bei 96, aber auch dreckige Aromen, die man aus 98 und 2000 kennt. Viel süße, Honig, Vanille, Karamell. Im Gaumen eine Geschmacksexplosion, unglaublich mundfüllend, ölig und süß. Selten hatte ich einen Rum, der mich geschmacklich so zu überzeugen wusste. Besser geht's mMn kaum!
