Ein unglaublich guter Caroni, der auch von ein paar Tropfen Wasser profitiert. Dann bietet er alles was ein Caroni bieten kann.

Im Glas braucht er mal eine Ewigkeit, zwei Stunden Beatmung sind da nicht falsch. Eine wunderbare Nase, schöne getrocknete Früchte. Der klassische Caroni-Vibe (verbrannter Teer, Gummi) ist nicht ganz so ausgeprägt und unvermutet (70%) ist die Nase etwas zurückhaltend. Im Mund dann brutal die Faust, aber sehr, sehr gut. Im Abgang verwöhnt dann noch die volle Ladung Gewürze. Schöner Caroni zum Genießen und dann zum Frischmachen.

This is a very, very good Caroni. As soon as the bottle is opened you know this is a Caroni. Heavy on wood and fruity at the same time and the of course the rubber and tar with spices. Mouthwatering just nosing it. The palate is complex and well balanced. The ABV is very well integrated on top of that. Again heavy on the wood with fruit, spice and again the lovely rubber and tar with light burnt sugar and a hint of leather. The finish is VERY long with wood, rubber, tar, spices and raisins. The cost of this bottle tody is just out of bounds, none the less a super good Caroni.

Ein echtes Brett! Aber der Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein.

Un caroni étonnant de gourmandise, surtout vu le degré d'alcool. La finale est longue et colle aux dents. Une grande réussite.

20 jahre tropisch, 70%, 96er Velier Caroni... Tja. Sehr, sehr gut. Keine Weltklasse. Aber dennoch auf höchstem Level. Abgang ist vergleichsweise kurz für so viele %.

mmmh…somehow a well balanced rum but the abv level doesn’t help, To much alcohol that’s suppressing the flavors. Despite it appears well balanced it is not a very complex rum. Finish is very long but again it’s the adstringent feeling as a result of the alcohol but no flavors dominate the finish. Is there too much hype around Caroni? And we start tasting things that we believe we have to taste?
