How does this rum taste?

The Heavy Trinidad Rum HTR is a robust, complex rum with noticeable cola notes, hinting towards a refreshing 'Fritz Cola' punch. Characteristic Caroni traits of tropical fruits, caramel-vanilla sweetness, and dirty notes reward the palate, surprising with a slightly frosty, fruity aftertaste.

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: In der Nase auffällig ausgeprägte Noten von Cola, davon abgesehen trifft hier HTR auf dezente Gebäcknoten und frische Zitrusaromen tropischer Früchte. Am Gaumen treten die typischen Teer- und auch Gumminoten voll in den Vordergrund, wobei auch hier die tropischen Früchte neben den karamellig-vanilligen Süssenoten im Abgang erkennbar bleiben. Ein toller Caroni, der geschmacklich einige neue Aromenkombinationen aufzubieten hat (Cola!) und damit eigenständig unterwegs ist.”

“Un nez d’atelier mécanique et de fruits tropicaux terriblement équilibré (si on peut dire ça). Un nez qui donne envie d’aller plus loin aussitôt. Les fruits tropicaux sont aussi à égalité avec les fruits jaunes. L’entrée de bouche propose un peu menthol. Puis fruits, notes herbacées, atelier mécanique, tout arrive en même temps. Un arrière goût comme sucré, intrigant… de cola. Oui comme dans Coca-Cola ! La finale est fraîche, sur les fruits avec un petit côté givré. Le verre vide offre des marqueurs Caroni assez marqués et toujours un léger Cola.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting: das Cola-Monster! Sowohl an der Nase als auch am Gaumen deutliche Cola-Noten. Dazu noch die typische Caroni-DNA. Gefällt mir ausgezeichnet!”
