How does this rum taste?

The L'Esprit Caroni 1996 offers traditional Caroni aroma fused with delightful notes of caramel and tropical fruit. It's elegantly robust with a tinge of Highland Whisky and unleashes a sweeter, softer side in the finish. Its high ABV is palpable yet well-blended.

“Les caroni trop huile de garage ou pneu de vél ou jus de vieux bois mouillé, c'est pas mon truc, donc souvent, j'aime bien mais sans plus. Mais alors celui ci me montre que ça peut être vraiment classe! Vieux bois à la cire d'abeille avec une belle fraîcheur en prime. Très élégant, très agréable, très bon. J'ai pas gouté 50 caroni, mais celui la c'est le meilleur que j'ai eu. Content de le partager pour le faire découvrir, mais si j'avais la chance d'en ravoir une, je la prends de suite!”

“Schöne Wachs- und Bienenwaben Noten, die sich zum Gebrannten Zucker und zum Gummi gesellen. Am Gaumen gibt er sich etwas alkoholisch und es fehlt die luxuriöse Cremigkeit der tropischen Cousins. Wenig Frucht.”

“The nose starts relatively light with vanilla, bourbon and cereal. Of the caronino notes I find only very remotely a little tar. The alcohol I slightly superficial. On the palate harmonious to the nose, sweet and with associations to Highland Whisky. The alcohol is also clearly noticeable here. In the aftertaste, the rum is then softer and here flashes tar, bicycle tube and "dirt" again strongly. The rum ends with barrel notes. I like the sweetness and the finish. Otherwise, this is probably more of a LTR.”
