“An incredibly sweet nose, with rubber and lots of fruit. Kumquat, almond and a pleasant vanilla woodiness. The alcohol is a little more present on the palate with a slight spiciness at first, then this rum fills the mouth with fruit, nuts, spices, varnish and a tar base that enhances all the flavors. A tropical roadside garden. The finish is very long, with noble bitter flavors and a slightly more pronounced woodiness than on the palate. A citrus note (kumquat) reappears at the very end. A real surprise, a delicious rum even if it is fruitier and more floral than the more powerful Caronis. Everything is in balance.”

“Dans la veine des Caroni 1998, Cadenhead’s présente une jolie cuvée sans véritables fausses notes. Le nez s’ouvre sur un fruité exotique porté par l’ananas, puis diverge avec des notes plus rondes sur la pâte à biscuit avant de retomber sur un profil plus classique : atelier mécanique, boisé fumé et épices chaudes sont là pour éveiller les sens. L’attaque en bouche est vive, lourde et intense, mais aussi huileuse et d’une belle rondeur. On retrouve le caoutchouc et le goudron encore chaud, suivis par les fruits tropicaux, des épices (vanille, piment), du chêne, du cuir et du caramel chaud qui apporte un peu de douceur. Bien que le profil soit bien maîtrisé, il lui manque ce petit brin de folie qui lui permettrait de se distinguer des autres Caronis de ce Millésime assez répandu. Le constat est similaire en finale. Celle-ci est longue, chaude, pétrolifère, fumée, avec des touches fruitées et du caramel presque brûlé. Le boisé fumé, les épices chaudes et le cuir sont également présents. C’est un beau Caroni, mais qui a du mal à s’extirper de l’archétype du genre (ou mon palais devient exigeant peut-être).”

“#4527 14.12.2023 The second Caroni of the evening and it's also a very nice and well balanced one. The Caroni profile is medium strong and there is a nice fruity touch to it. The palate is oily, well rounded and fresh with some cherry. The finish os medium to long with a light minty touch.”
