Un vrai Caroni dès le premier nez, atelier mécanique et fruits tropicaux. Bien meilleur après quelques mois d’ouverture de la bouteille, les Caronis aimant l’oxydation. La bouche n’est pas en reste avec une finale longue à souhait. Très beau rhum ! Ré-goûté et encore meilleur.

I really like this well balanced 22 year old caroni, which was finished for 3 years in used Oloroso casks. The nose is intense and stats with tannins and tar, but then descends into and oaky, herbal and medicinal bliss. The palate is dark and intense with a load of flavours. The medicinal note is still there with coffee, orange peel and the sherry cask notes. The finish is long with oak, sherry and a touch of licorice. The medicinal touch is also there. Very well balanced Caroni and I'm going to enjoy having this one on my shelf. A bit expensive but also rare with less than 1000 bottles.

Salbei Tee und Teer und Medizin an der Nase, sowie im Geschmack. sehr mild und Lang nicht so dreckig wie andere caronis aber dennoch nicht mein Fall. Ich mag kein Salbei und ich werde glaub einfach nicht zum caroni Fan, das sherry Finish versucht hier einiges glatt und geschmeidig zu machen, aber für mich ist es einfach immer noch zu metallisch und dreckig. wer drauf steht, Go for it.
