Tutto quello che adoro in un rum! Non posso immaginare un mondo senza Caroni! Non oso pensare come devono essere buone le annate degli anni 80! So che Velier sta tentando di ricostruire l'alambicco intervistando tutti quelli che avevano lavorato nella distilleria.

Ein klassischer Caroni mit viel Orangenschale. Nicht so reif und vollmundig wie manch anderer Velier, der Körper ist etwas schlanker und erinnert mich an einen guten Agricole. Mit Caroni-Vibe wohlgemerkt. Ein Rum der richtig Spaß macht, Glas für Glas.

Toller Caroni!

Le meilleur de la série Extra Strong pour moi, des belles notes empyreumatiques typiques de Caroni, mais aussi les fruits à coques torréfiés, le tabac et le chocolat noir. Une parfaite intégration de l’alcool et une magnifique longueur.

This one beats both the 12 and 15 year versions by far. A true Caroni from the nose to the finish. The alcohol is almost too dominant so I added a few drops of water which also released a lot of extra flavours after resting for 15 minutes. The nose is typical Caroni with rubber, polish and fruits mixed with vanilla. The palate continues with the rubber and clearly charred barrel as well as fruit and spices. The finish is long and also has the rubber and burnt/charred barrel to it.

Angenehm würzig und ledrig in der Nase. Säuerliche, geschwefelte Frucht, wie getrockneter Aprikose. Tabak und Vanille und auch rauchig. Liebstöckel und eine leichte Honig-Süße. Kräftig würzig-süß am Gaumen. Die Süße erinnert mich an Marzipan. Jetzt kommen auch die leicht dreckigen Aromen durch. Gummi und Plastik, aber umgeben von Liebstöckel und Vanille. Säuerliche Frucht vlt. Johannisbeere. Deutlich mehr Körper und Menge Caroni als der 12 jährige Bruder.

Toujours un plaisir de le retrouver. Un bel équilibre, des marqueurs Caroni bien présents et une agréable gourmandise.

J'ai trouvé ce caroni top lors d'une dégustation comparative de la série classique velier caroni. Avec le 21 ils sont d'une complexité admirable !

Nez très fruité ! Enivrant ! Premier verre de la bouteille donc à voir par la suite. Caoutchouc marqué orange et fruits rouges. Délicieux !! Caoutchouc bien présent au réveil 😛

Super im Abgang, die ersten Schlucke eine Überraschung. Je länger im Mund umso Angenehmer.
