Mal etwas Anderes an der Caroni-Front! In der Nase zuerst sehr nussig. Danach Früchte, am Ende sehr floral (Lavendel!). Die typische dirtyness ist sehr, sehr zurückhaltend. Alles auf höchsten Niveau. Im Mund dann sehr holzig, trotzdem warm, voll und gut. Gewohntes Niveau, fällt im Mund etwas ab. Edit: Neben der extremen Fruchtigkeit Werkstättengerüche, welche ich in dieser Form von keinem anderen Caroni kenne.

Was für eine Nase! Leider hält das, was anschliessend in Mund und Rachen passiert, nicht ganz Schritt. Vor allem die beerigen Noten sind weg, stattdessen kommen v.a. bittere Eiche und Würze durch. Kein absoluter Spitzen-Caroni - wobei die Nase sich aber ziemlich weit vorne einreihen darf.

Nicht so dreckig, mehr Menthol, nicht typisch caroni, trotzdem sehr gut!

Un Caroni de haute facture au profil olfactif très élaboré. Le goudron et le caoutchouc se mêlent au bois et au chêne, viennent ensuite des notes épicées, puis du caramel, du toffee et de la noisette pour arrondir les angles. Les fruits, notamment exotiques et la cerise, viennent après aération. On retrouve en bouche un rhum typique de la distillerie, puissant, intense et huileux, avec des notes épicées perceptibles (réglisse, anis) un côté boisé très élégant et des arômes de goudron et de caoutchouc brulé. Le chocolat noir, le toffee et le caramel complètent le palais, avec une pointe fruitée très légère. La finale est très longue et se poursuit sur le profil sombre, brûlé et et épicé. Une pointe de menthol se fait ressentir. Un très bon représentant de la distillerie défunte.

Yesterday we had a great evening in my friends man-cave. Lots of laughter and wonderful rums. This one released a lot of flavours with a drop of water added.

Thiner than usuel, but so classy, so oily, so fresh and fruits, lighly herbal and precious wood
