La fameuse dégustation du coffret des single cask S.B.S. Le fût # 190. Le nez le plus fruité des quatre mais quand même avec des notes typiques de Caroni. La bouche elle aussi est très fruitée, les arômes Caroni viennent ensuite. La seule finale fruitée de la série. Verre vide : les arômes sont un peu trop discrets. Trois points au-dessus du fût # 193 car plus équilibré et l’alcool est bien intégré.

Ich mag das SBS Caroni Set sehr gerne. Unglaubliches PLV und eher un-süß und un-fruchtig. Die Rums sind nicht über-dreckig aber weil nicht so süß und fruchtig kommt die Werkstatt-Seite schön zur Geltung. Mag alle 4 sehr gerne.

Eine schöne, ausgewogene Caroni-Nase, schön fruchtig und eine tolle Kakaopulver (100%)-Note. 63% und trotzdem süffig. Im Mund dann holziger, knusprig und der Alkohol sticht etwas. Für Caroni etwas kurz im Abgang. Ja, es gibt aufregendere Caronis, aber wenn man sich eine Flasche zum entspannt trinken kaufen will, ist man bei 1997 sehr gut aufgehoben. 4/10 auf der Caroni-Madness-Skala.

Das Fass 190 ist wohl der rundeste und gefälligste Caroni dieses S.B.S Sets. Am Anfang kurz Rauch/Teer, dann am meisten Frucht und Karamell an der Nase, dazu eher typische Agricole-Noten. Im Mund zwar trocken, aber dennoch mild genug. Im Abgang leckere Früchte und Kakao. Guter Rum, aber Preis zu hoch und dem Caroni-Name geschuldet.

This rum is part of a four cask selection set. Cask 53, cask 190, cask 193 and cask 216. This particular cask burns less in the alcohol than cask 193 and also more dry. A very balanced and pleasant experience that for some may need a few drops of water.

A little beast is the best way to describe it. It's not great, but worth a try.The tasting feel is not bad among caroni(especial that not HTR).

Zur Perfektion fehlt noch das gewisse Etwas. 1/4

Für mich ein nicht ganz idealer Caroni, da er auf der einen Seite zu brav ist und das dreckige fehlt, auf der anderen Seite unangenehm verbrannt und zu sehr nach Zucker schmeckt.
