RumX-Adventskalender, 18.12., blind. Erster Eindruck: ganz klar Caroni! Dreckig fruchtig, nicht zu kompliziert, >60%. Gut. Nase: wie gesagt, angenehm dreckig-fruchtig, kräftig und komplex. Süßliches Teer und verbranntes Gummi. Rote Johannisbeere und ein ganz leichter Hauch Minze. Hinten Politur und kalter Rauch. Gaumen: auch am Gaumen kräftig und komplex. Trocken und holzig und am Anfang salzig-bitter. Dann Gummisbrieb und Politur, vielleicht etwas getrocknete Kirsche und Grapefruit. Sehr gut trinkbarer und schöner Caroni-Vertreter.

This is an OK Caroni, but it's like something is missing and I can't put my finger in it. The price on release I'd say was pretty good. The nose is typical Caroni with tar and rubber followed by smoky wood, fruit, leather and light vanilla. The palate is intanese and spicy and also starts with tar and rubber trailed by smoky wood and dried fruit and light vanilla. The finish is long with smoky wood, tar, rubber and spices.

Typische Caroninoten… nicht so intensiv wie viele andere, aber insgesamt rund und harmonisch! Mit einem längeren Abgang wären auch mehr Punkte möglich gewesen… sehr lecker

On a bien les marqueurs Caroni. D’abord au nez, sensationnel, et après petite aération, en bouche délicieux, un régal, j’adore. Superbe longueur pour le final 😍😍😍

What the fxxx? Wenn man immer von dreckigen Caronis hört sind wohl Rums wie dieser gemeint. Man wird gleich von viel Teer und Gummi in der Nase empfangen, es riecht ölig, bisschen wie Tankstelle. Am Gaumen erstmal die Teermaschine😅 erstmal atmen lassen. Eine Herausforderung mit ordentlich Holz bisschen Frucht kommt durch, etwas Tabak mit leichter Rauchigkeit im Finish die hier wirklich gut gefällt. Nase 86: inzwischen habe ich Energy Drink in lecker in der Nase Gaumen: 85 man muss dieses dreckige Profil schon mögen. Finish: 87 schön intensiv

Ganz „typische“ Trinidad Nase die Caroni schnell erahnen lässt. Der Geschmack ist dann neben dem wieder typischen Dreck unerwartet fruchtig süß ohne dabei zu aufdringlich zu werden. Der Abgang ist als würde man auf sandigem Schluff kauen der mit Tabak vermengt wurde. Sehr trocken und nachhaltig. Sehr schön das dieser mit so viel ABV abgefüllt wurde und der Alkohol so gut integriert ist. Nach längerem stehen wird der Teer extrem (positiv).

Tag 18 RumX Adventskalender: Nase: auch nach Stunden im Glas kommt als erstes Alkohol. Dann dreckig bis verkohlt, würzig und rauchig. Gaumen: und wieder Alkohol. Ein wenig Wasser hat etwas geöffnet. Es bleiben dem Grunde nach die Aromen wie an der Nase, im Abgang etwas leicht frisches Richtung Menthol. Mir im Ergebnis zu alkoholisch und nicht rund. Keine Ahnung was es war, bis zur Auflösung. Wieder ein Caroni. Den letzten Caroni aus dem Adventskalender fand ich besser, weil runder. Der hier ist mir zu forsch.
