Recht trockener Caroni. Typisch Assoziationen von Teer und Gummi, eine gute Portion Rauch und herbe Gewürze gesellen sich zu den herben Noten vom Fass und dunkler Schokolade. Insgesamt gar nicht übel, ein durchaus passabler Vertreter des Jahrgangs 1999. Für die Caroni-Spitzenklasse reicht es aber deutlich nicht.

This is a very nice release and also a very limited one. The nose is wonderfully Caroni with tar, rubber and smoky wood. Once rested fruit and leather notes appear. The nose is kind of sweet and well balanced. The palate takes off where the nose ends. Tar, rubber and smoky wood trailed by tobacco, caramel and pineapple and a light touch of leather. A nicely balanced rum. The finish is long and with smoky wood and fruits. Would have loved a full bottle instead of a sample :-)

Un peu déçu, j’attendais plus.

Comme toujours avec John et Hubert, le mot équilibre est de mise… ce Caroni est très bien balancé, sur des notes plus gourmandes, pâtissières et cela tout en gardant la caractère robuste des heavy rum Caroni… Une très belle réussite… vraiment, ce caroni est comme un bon ami. Une grosse tape virile sur l’épaule suivie d’une chaleureuse compagnie !

On a droit à un nez bien complexe comme Caroni sait si bien le faire. C’est un profil du service maintenance de Shell : du cuir, de la colle, du goudron, du caoutchouc … mais mielleux à la fois ! C’est cela que l’on aime chez Caroni, c’est déroutant car on associe des arômes atypiques des autres distilleries avec du joli fruité (fruits rouges). Et que l’on aime ou pas, cela ne laisse pas indifférent. A tout cela, on peut rajouter un léger boisé, du chocolat et des épices poivrées. L’attaque en bouche est franche, c’est chaleureux voir un peu trop vigoureux. Les touche dirty se ressentent.
