Ein wirklich toller Caroni! Klassische Caroni-Noten mit einem leichtem Rotweincharakter. Von den Schwächen des 1997-Batches ist hier absolut nichts zu bemerken. Eine ernsthafte Alternative zu den schwarzen Flaschen. Mittlerweile aber auch schon schwierig zu bekommen. Dieser Rum ist meine Empfehlung neben dem 17 und 21 Extra Strong, um in die Caroni-Welt einzutauchen.

Fin d’une bouteille, une excellente chose pour apprécier un Caroni. Le verre embaume la pièce avant même de mettre le nez dessus. Un nez fort et doux à la fois avec de l’orange amère, du chocolat noir et un parfum de vin rouge et bien sûr les parfums typiques de la distillerie. Une attaque vive mais aussitôt après débarquent les fruits et les arômes d’atelier mécanique. Une finale longue et savoureuse où revient orange amère et chocolat. Un rhum dur et fermé à l’ouverture de la bouteille mais savoureux avec de l’oxydation.

die typischen, dreckigen Caroni-Marker sind deutlich vorhanden, aber was mir hier besonders gefällt, sind die Noten von dunkler Schokolade, sowohl an der Nase als auch am Gaumen.

Probiert als 5cl Sample. Wieder ähnlich dessen was ich zu Caroni bisher so gelesen habe. Geruchlich Teer, Gummi, Rosine, Trockenfrüchte und ne Spur Orange. Geschmacklich ebenfalls etwas dreckig, Teer, Gummi, modrig, Getrocknete Früchte und feuchtes Holz. Rauchrig, rüstig im Abgang und eine ölige Konsistenz. Gefällt mir ziemlich gut, jedoch nicht so sehr wie der Cadenheads/The Nectar. Den aktuellen Preis von 300€/0,7l finde ich jedoch nicht gerechtfertigt. Der kommt vermutlich nur daher weil Caroni drauf steht.

Hier wurde der Fehler Caronis auf 40% zu verwässern (Bristol VSOC und 1998) behoben und das wird extrem belohnt. So richtig intensiv dreckig als würde man eine geteerte Zigarre zerkauen, so wie ich mir einen Caroni vorgestellt habe. Nicht nur die Nase ist hier einladend auch der Geschmack ist geradezu hypnotisierend intensiv. Kleines Manko: Mir als Nichtraucher gehen hier die Fruchtaromen etwas ab.
