Stärkster 97er Caroni, den Ich bisher im Glas hatte. Sehr ausgewogen. Einfach ein toller Rum.

Sehr schöner Caroni mit dem Flair vollständiger tropischer Reife. Sehr, sehr rund und ausgewogen. „Mittel-dreckig“. Tiefes, öliges Karamell (das erinnert sehr stark an Velier). Nicht sehr komplex. Der Genießer-Caroni.

Pas fan de Caroni mais j'ai été étonné du nez qu'il propose. Au goût il reste assez doux par rapport à d'autre Caroni, malgré tout on retrouve toujours les mêmes marqueur.

Wahou! Le nez est chouette, plein de choses variées mais équilibrées. La bouche est juste top! C'est les caroni que j'aime vraiment ou le fruit est bien présent avec tout le reste et ou le vieux boisé mentholé ne vient pas tout emporter. J'ai adoré. Alors merci Roger 😉

It’s always a pleasure tasting a Caroni..this one as all the right distinctive marks..it’s dirty, rubbery, with a fresh note of menthol and a fruity background, that later develops into more earthy flavors (I get slightly bitter licorice roots). The palate adds a spicy flavor, along with some citrus. Finish is long and warm. In comparison with some Caroni from Velier, gotta say that it is less powerful and less dirty, it doesn’t cling to your mouth like tar. Nevertheless, it’s a hell of a dram!

Für einen 97er zuerst erstaunlich rund, aber im Abgang kommen dann Bitternoten.

Schöner Caroni, der neben den bekannten Werkstattnoten auch eine Portion rote und getrocknete Früchte mitbringt. Gut eingebundener Alkohol. Etwas Standzeit tut ihm gut.

Haaa, le nez se met en place. C’est plus rond que le 98, cela sent l’amande, la vanille. Le tout englobé par les hydrocarbures typiques de la distillerie. En bouche, il y a de la prune, des raisins secs, du tabac, de la mangue. Et en finale le cuir et le chocolat .... belge ! Une vraie longueur comme on les aiment. J'ai une petite préférence pour ce 97 comparativement au 98 mais les agricoles auront eu ma préférence durant cette soirée ! Nous voilà au terme de cette dégustation exceptionnelle. On a pris du plaisir à découvrir ces rhums. Mais surtout à discuter, rigoler et partager. Encore un énorme merci à Seb et Quentin pour cette dinguerie de lineup.
