Gemeinsam mit Leo Tomczak auf dem 11. GRF verkostet. Klare Angelegenheiten, ein sehr guter Rum mit allem, was einen Caroni ausmacht, fand ihn super ausgewogen. Der parallel verkostete Rum Nation Caroni 1998 23y (RX11047) hatte keine Chance.

This was the lowest scoring one of the evening, though still a very good rum! All the Caroni notes are there with added roasted notes, light fruit and vanilla. In the back i find coffee and leather.

Un sample dégusté après le Caroni Velier 1983 52%. Totalement différent. Merci Thomas pour le sample. Voilà un “vrai” Caroni tel qu’on l’attend, même plus fort que prévu. Un nez puissant avec de l’encens, de l’atelier mécanique, des fruits et de la cendre froide. Une bouche intense et concentrée avec surtout des fruits et une finale dominée par une amertume noble. Un Caroni pour amateurs de rhums extrêmes. Le verre vide raconte toute une histoire de vieille église avec un marché de fruits tropicaux devant. Passionnant.

Nosing and taste are very inconsistent, too dull for a tropical-aging caroni. pungent, alcoholic. Fortunately, there is still some complexity

Farbe: Kastanie Geruch: Riecht fruchtig nach Pflaume in Madeira, Rosinen und Schokolade. Dabei alkoholisch und cremig. Geschmack: Süß im Mund, dabei fruchtig und alkoholisch scharf mit Aromen von Kümmel und Anis. Beim Schlucken extrem kräftig, intensiv und vollmundig. Super lecker, komplex, würzig, Rum-Trauben-Nuss Schokolade, Fudge und Toffee. Abgang: Lang Wärmt von tief innen. Dabei leicht bitter, trocken, holzig mit Ingwer. 90 Punkte

I was a bit disappointed when I first tried it... I made a mistake. I've to admit it. This rum needs time, a lot of time to breath and open up and also to make you travel through different place Caroni is known for, dirty oil, gaz, but also fruity, with sweet tropical stewed fruits, generous cake... Take this Caroni as a trip in the distillery, take your time don't rush, smell it and drink slow, you will be highly rewarded. Now my bottle is half empty, opened for months and the rum became really stellar !!!
