Absoluter Wahnsinn! Unheimlich komplex und trotzdem easy sipping. Meine neue Caroni-Referenz!

Schier endloses Bouquet. Die klassischen Caroni-Noten gehen ein grossartiges Wechselspiel ein mit Früchten, Holz und einer exquisiten Süsse, woraus sich eine fantastische Komplexität ergibt. Nicht nur im Vergleich mit anderen Abfüllungen des bemerkenswerten Jahrgangs 1996 ein herausragender Vertreter des Caroni-Stils. Oder anders formuliert: Einen besseren gilt es noch zu finden.

Was für ein Caroni ! Rund, trotzdem komplex, wenig dreckig, einfach perfekt! Benchmark Caroni! Immer wieder - the Last!

Still absolute top notch out of 96. Leaning a bit more towards the dirty notes vs. 30th and 34th, yet still incredibly balanced, delivering everything you would expect (and more).

Toller Caroni mit allen Aromen die man von einem Caroni erwartet. Die dreckigen Aromen sind sehr angenehm präsent, verdrängen aber nicht die fruchtigen Aromen. Eine schöne süße begleitet das Ganze.

Nez : Caroni bien comme on aime. Des notes plus profondes/mûres, c'est gourmand ça donne vraiment envie !! En bouche : Oh bordel ! Intense et délicieux !!! Une puissance bien maitrisé et rafraîchie par un côté mentholé .C'est excellent. Caoutchouc encore présent au réveil. Vraiment délicieux ❤

Un très beau Caroni, très équilibré, très fruité, très typé...

Mit einem Wort: KOMPLETT Nicht nur als Caroni, sondern auch als Rum allgemein. Selten hat man sowas rundes und komplexes in der Nase, wahnsinn! Früchte aller Art, Möbelpolitur, Gummi, Vanille Kräuter, Milchschokolade und eine unglaubliche Honigsüße. Das Fass ist präsent, aber für 23 Jahre nicht mal annähernd over the Top. Der Rum nimmt den Mund unfassbar schnell mit einer sensationellen und cremigen Honigsüße ein und ist hier nicht weniger komplex. "Keine Bitterkeit" lässt grüßen. Nicht umsonst eine Legende und ein hochverdient geschätzter Rum

Nein, über diesen Rum muss man eigentlich nichts schreiben. Auch wenn ich vorher nicht gewusst hätte, was ich im Glas habe, hätte ich diesem Rum meine bisherige Höchstwertung gegeben. Unbedingt atmen lassen vor dem Trinken! Aber dann passt einfach alles. Was für ein Geniestreich von einem Blend! Die komplett tropische Reifung schmeckt man aus jeder Pore. RUND, SCHWER, KOMPLEX. THE LAST.

Beim Last Caroni treten die typischen Werkstattgerüche eher in den Hintergrund. Ich rieche leckere Backwaren, Gewürze, Vanille. Aber auch Trockenfrüchte und Dörrpflaume. Im Mund kommen dann wieder Gummi und Teer zum Vorschein. Auch Röstnoten, Oliven, leichte Grasnoten. Ein sehr langer und schöner Abgang. Toller Rum. Einer der besten Caronis!

die volle Punktzahl bleibt ihm nur verwehrt, weil Luca Gargano vielleicht ja doch noch ein streng gehütetes Fass aus dem Hut zaubern könnte 😉
