Once this rum is rested the Caroni notes just come crawling across the table. I rested it for 15+ minutes before giving it a go. The nose has smoky wood, tar and rubber trailed by caramel, orange and a light earthy note. The palate is kind of in your face with roasted/smoky wood, tar, rubber, mango, caramel and light tobacco and iodine. What I like is the warm pepperyness on the palate. The finish is long and warm with wood and some earthy notes.

Sehr würzig. Hat eine interessante Süße, die sich gut mit den restlichen Aromen verträgt.

Now this is a continentally aged Caroni I absolutely love! Quite alcoholic upon first whiff but those diesel/tar notes are there! The taste is just right up my street... lots of dirty tropical fruits and those typical diesel/tar notes are present but with a nice hint of charred wood and spice. Very peppery on the finish but those dirty notes keep on coming! Love me a 97!

Nose: toasted/toasted bread and flank, spices (cloves), varnish and exotic woods (sandalwood), coffee with almond chips, rubber, petroleum/alcohol, slightly fruity (orange and coconut) and vanilla, floral.Palate: caramel/melasse/burnt sugars mixed with coffee, spices (pepper and clove), a teaspoon of wood oil, some rubber, slight sweetness (citrus), bitterness (amaretto) and floral essences (mimosa/geranium) plus peppermint/eucalyptus at the very end.It's long and it's good (CMB)!

Farbe: Hellbraun Geruch: Komplexe Aromen, die aber schwer zu identifizieren sind, da ich diesen Rum als ziemlich verschlossen wahrnehme. Da sind einerseits Allgemeinhin mit "lecker" assoziierte Aromen, wie schwach süß, Karamell, Orangenkuchen, Kakao, Sandelholz und Marzipan. Andererseits ist da etwas dreckiges, wie Motoröl, Lederpolitur, Air Freshener und Gummi. Geschmack: Kräftig, intensiv und sehr würzig. im Mund cremig und mild. Beim Schlucken eine Explosion von Aromen - einerseits diverse Gewürze, (unter anderem Pfeffer, Ingwer, Nelken) und Kampfer. Andererseits Röstaromen, Holz, Leder und Tabak sowie leckere Lebkuchen, Toffee und Nugat. Komplex und aufgrund der Vielfalt schwer zu beschreiben. Abgang: Lang, sehr würzig und scharf. Etwas Teer und salziges Brackwasser. Hat einen bitter-trocken-holzigen Nachgeschmack, dabei leicht adstringierend.. Fazit: Ein sehr guter Rum, der allerdings nicht zu meinen bevorzugten Caroni-Abfüllungen gehört. Dazu ist er zu ausdrucksschwach und schmuddelig ohne klare Geschmackslinie.
