“#1st dec RumXCalendar Blind tasting: Nose: Rubber, Bicylce tube, woody, toasted, varnish, leather Palate: rubber, caramel, dried fruits, roasted, woody, barrel notes, oily, licorice Finish: long, rubber, licoric, woody, barrel notes, espresso. The alcohol is integrated very well. This one is crazy, on one side it has a bit of a caroni like rubber/bicyle tube taste, but the full body is missing here, it’s … softer. This doesn’t mean it’s bad, but more accessible😏 My Prediction: T.D.L but an old one without those lovely minty notes Approx. 55% Approx. 25 years of aging”

“Blind, Tag 1 24DaysOfRum 2022 Ich hatte mich auf Caroni festgelegt und war mir auch recht sicher - so kann man sich irren! Die Nase ist recht verschlossen. Ich nehme Trockenfrüchte und Vanille wahr. Am Gaumen dann sehr wuchtig mit vielen Noten, die ich Caroni zuordnen würde. Schwer und ölig. Der Nachklang ist lang und spiegelt schön die Eindrücke vom Gaumen. Ein sehr guter Rum.Wenn der Alkohol besser integriert wäre, würde ich mit 90+ bewerten.”
