Mein erster Caroni. Ich mag die fruchtige rauchige Mischung. Sehr genial im Abgang. Teer und Schokolade sticht heraus. Macht Lust auf mehr :)

My favorite out of the 1998s I tasted. Provides most punch, combining dirty with some fruity notes.

Un single cask de Kill Devil de 1998 à goûter absolument, bu en comparaison avec le magnifique Caroni 21 de Velier et il le surpasse en caractère et en originalité, mais pas en terme de diversité et de profondeur d’arômes. Au nez le goudron et le caoutchouc sont bien présents avec des fruits tropicaux. En bouche l’intégration de l’alcool est parfaite, pas de brûlure mais une palette d’arômes immédiatement présente. La finale est infinie avec un soupçon d’esthers en plus. Un rhum exigeant, il faut lui laisser beaucoup de temps dans le verre, mais qui conjugue extrémisme et équilibre. Le verre vide révèle encore d’autres arômes de fruits et d’atelier mécanique.

In der Nase viel Teer, verbranntes Öl, dann Politur und schöne Holzreife. Mit etwas Wasser wird er chremiger, mehr Schokolade und Kaffee. Der Alkohol ist gut eingebunden. Keine Frucht. Im Mund dann schärfer und etwas dünn, langer, schöner Abgang. Ein sehr dreckiger Caroni mit Ecken und Kanten. Sehr gut.

In der Nase noch relativ verhalten kommt am Gaumen die volle Wucht!! Dreckig… irgendwie Rennstrecke… Tankstelle und dreckig! Der Alkohol Ist spürbar, aber nicht unangenehm! Ein klasse Rum, jedoch nicht für jeden Abend

Ein toller Rum. Eindeutig verortbar als Caroni. Typische dreckige Noten von Gummi, Lösungsmittel und etwas Teer kommen in der Nase und am Gaumen zum Vorschein. Es gibt natürlich intensivere Caroni, aber ein toller 98er Vertreter zu einem fairen Preis.
