“Demeroni ! Je rêvais de goûter la bête ! Merci Rodolphe pour le sample. Au nez de l’atelier mécanique typique de Caroni, pas d’erreur, mais ensuite des fruits tropicaux et de l’orange qui font plutôt penser à la Jamaïque. En bouche l’orange ressort, mais le côté Caroni vient tout de suite après. En finale un peu d’amertume, des fruits et un côté fumé/boîte de cigares. Pas grand chose de Demerara dans ce rhum à part en finale. Goûté avec un gâteau d’anniversaire aux marrons et… accord parfait ! Que s’est-il passé ? Sans doute un fût de Caroni/Monymusk égaré chez DDL. Passionnant ! Le verre vide du lendemain offre des arômes de Demerara, à ne plus rien y comprendre…”

“C'est un très beau profil. Autant le nez est un peu sombre, autant on trouve de beaux fruits gourmands pour contrebalancer les notes plus charpantées. Parfait mélange entre Caroni et Demerara”
