Es muss nicht immer die volle Caroni-Drecksschleuder sein. Perfekt ausgewogener und harmonischer Caroni. I like!

Top-Caroni und ein exzellenter Vertreter des grossartigen 96er Jahrgangs. Ausgewogen, komplex, Caroni-typische Noten, dunkle Früchte und schöne Süsse. Ein idealer Einstiegsrum in die hochwertige Welt der tropisch gelagerten Caronis mit (mittlerweile nicht mehr ganz so einfach finanzierbarem, aber dennoch) relativ gutem Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Der Preis-Leistungsverhältnis-Killer! Für mich einer der besten tropischen Caronis, was das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis angeht.

Perfekt ausgewogene Caroni-Magie. Rund, warm, vollmundig. Eine animalische Note kompensiert die zurückhaltende dreckige Werkstatt. Ein toller Caroni, sehr gut trinkbar.

Un rhum authentique, unique et tout simplement sublime. Le nez, tantôt typique de Caroni avec des arômes d’hydrocarbures, de goudron et de caoutchouc, tantôt concentré sur les épices, le cuir et le bois, tantôt doux sur la vanille et le caramel, tantôt intense sur les fruits tropicaux et les fruits rouges, a beaucoup à offrir. On retrouve ce côté huileux et sale en bouche et qui fait la réputation de Caroni, notamment avec les hydrocarbures, mais aussi des saveurs de réglisse, de chêne, de goudron et de colle, des notes fumées et terreuses et de fruits rouges ainsi que de fruits secs. La finale, très longue, est légèrement rôtie et amère avec des arômes d’épices, du menthol, du tabac, du bois et du cuir. Un rhum gourmand, intense, aromatique et qui fait partie de l’histoire du rhum.

Un Caroni de 1996 qui ne renie pas son millésime, goudron et fruits tropicaux à égalité. Une odeur de massepain qui donne son côté pâtissier à ce rhum. On le trouve encore dans quelques boutiques mais à des prix exagérés, comme s’il devait bientôt prendre l’ascenseur, ce qui est possible vu la qualité du breuvage. Plus assagi que le Navy Rum 100th, mais tout aussi complexe et profond en arômes. Délicieux ! Regoûté et les fruits et la douceur prennent le pas sur le goudron. Un délice ! Un rhum clairement sous-évalué.

Un bon Caroni. Je lui préfère tout de même le 17 ans !

Mon premier Caroni! On m’a dit que c’était pas le plus réussi mais je me suis éclaté même si j’ai pas décelé les fameux hydrocarbures goudronnés qui sont souvent mentionnés. Par contre des épices, du cuir comme sur des vieux Bordeaux, et du bois. Prochaine fois je goute ça avec des experts Caro!

Very nice combination of Caroni notes, fruits, smoke and brunt notes as well as a mint and a certain sweetness. Very well made aged Caroni blend - very accessible and enjoyable.

Le caroni de la série classique avec le plus de complexité.
