herausragender caroni! Passionsfrucht, frische, grüne Minze, Honig, Weihrauch, metallisch aber nicht zu sehr, unglaublich harmonische Fruchtigkeit und genau mein Ding! geil! 😍🤤🤤 sehr süffig und trotzdem Recht langer Abgang vor allem!

Schöner Einstiegsrum in die Caroni-Welt. Gummi und Teer trifft auf Holz - nicht viel mehr, aber eben auch kein Deut weniger.

First off, this rum needs to rest for at least 15 minutes and I found that in order to release all the flavours it needs a few drops of water. The nose has some sweet alcohol to it mixed with oak and vanilla. The palate is spicy and dry, especially without the water, oak and spices are well integrated in the overall sip. The finish is long, dry and spicy with the barrel clearly present. Price to quality is OK.

Typischer vertreter seiner Art. Abgefahrener Reifen sehr trocken. Superintensiv obwohl er nur 50 umdrehungen hat.

Some nice Caroni notes on the nose alsongside some fruits. Palate is quite sweet and approachable for what you would expect. All in all quite nice with clearly noticeable Caroni DNA. Still a bit too tamed down for me personally.

Très bon caroni! Le plus jeune de la série velier mais il n'a pas à rougir devant c'est 3 frères. Il porte fièrement les couleurs de la distillerie. Si tu n'aime pas ce rum c'est que tu n'aime pas caroni selon moi

Rhum intéressant mais manque un peu de caractère

Mein Einstiegs-Caroni. Keine zu krasse Nase. Leicht metallisch-frisch und mit den typischen, an angesengtes Plastik erinnernden Aromen. Fruchtig rauchig. Etwas Birne, Tabak, Vanille. Am Gaumen fällt er ein wenig ab, wirkt etwas dünn für einen Caroni. Hab am Anfang kurz die Birne, dann kommt aber viel Lakritz und auch das angesengte Plastik kommt durch. Auch etwas Teer mag dabei sein. Hinten raus etwas Süße und Liebstöckel, mich irgendwie ab Maggi erinnert. Als Einstiegs-Caroni finde ich ihn absolut gut. Nicht zu krass aber typisch.

Probiert als 2cl Sample. Geruchlich sehr viel Frucht, insbesondere getrocknete Datteln und Birne, kombiniert mit Leder, Vanille und dem dreckigen Fahrradschlauch. Hier ist der typische Caroni Geschmack von dem man sooft liest ebenso allgegenwärtig. Die Füchte die man eben noch mit deutlicher Präsenz in der Nase hat tauchen nurnoch minimal auf. Holz, Leder, Teer und Gewürze haben hier klar die Oberhand. Vom Alkoholgehalt ist überhaupt nichts zu schmecken. Toller Rum. Edit: nach etwas Zeit an der Luft lässt die Fruchtnote der Nase auch nach und weicht einem wesentlich intensiverem Gummigerucht. Erinnert mich irgendwie etwas an Werkstatt-Geruch.
