alle typischen Marker sind vorhanden, nur nicht so komplex oder brachial wie bei anderen Vertretern aus dem Hause. Ich schreibe das dem Umstand zu, dass er einen großen Teil seiner Reife in kontinentalem Klima verbracht hat. Insgesamt durchaus rund und für einen Caroni eher ‚fruchtbetont‘.

Ein durchschnittlicher Caroni, der seinen Schwerpunkt auf den Werkstattnoten hat. Er kommt recht mild bis wässrig rüber. Insgrsamt fehlt etwas an Komplexität.

Gefälliger Caroni, dem leider etwas die Komplexität abgeht. Interessant sind die fruchtig-säuerlichen Noten, die sich zum klassischen Caroni-Profil gesellen. Leider kommt darüberhinaus aber nicht mehr viel Bemerkenswertes. Das Alter ist im positiven Sinne spürbar, Holz und Würze sind erkennbar, aber für die höchsten Weihen fehlt es etwas an Abwechslung am Gaumen. Trotzdem ein guter Rum, allerdings liegt bei Caroni die Messlatte für einen Eintrag im Spitzenbereich eindeutig zu hoch.

Very minty and leathery Caroni..both on the nose and palate it is not very dirty, although the distinctive traits of Caroni are there (Fusel oil, tar, some vague tropical fruits). On the palate, it is more peppery, warm and woody. Finish il long, dry and bitter, with more wood and leather. All in all, a solid Caroni!

Haaa, le nez se met en place. C'est la version bien sale de Caroni : cuir, kérosène, pneus brûlés. Mais avec un profil plus boisé amer que d'accoutumé et des épices. C'est plus solvanté. En bouche, c'est costaud (et pourtant nous en sommes au 9ème verre de la soirée). On retrouve du boisé fumé-toasté ! Il y a de la prune, des raisins secs, du tabac, de la mangue en arrière-plan. Mais cela maque de gourmandise. La finale est longue, très beurrée et astringente. Le nez était sympa mais la bouche manque de gourmandise. Il ne me procure pas suffisamment de plaisir, surtout au tarif des Caroni !!!! Probablement que j'en attends trop de cette provenance ...

Don’t be afraid of “bicycle tube” “solvent”... this is a really elegant rum, upsetting tastes but everything at its place,
