Hier finde ich die Bitterkeit von verbranntem Zucker und zugleich etwas Süße von Karamell. Dezent Menthol, aber nicht so krass wie bei anderen Caroni der Employeer-Reihe. Gummi und etwas metallisch im Abgang. Auch hier ist der Alkohol sehr elegant eingebunden. Ein super Rum, aber nicht ganz so weit vorn dabei wie der Manmohan.

The caramel is lighter on this one, but still nice and round in the overall profile. The nose has roasted wood, tar and rubber right off the bat with fruit caramel, vanilla and chocolate trailing closely being. In the back there is leather and some nuttyness. The palate is intense, complex and lightly bitter with roasted wood, tar and rubber followed by fruit, caramel and burnt sugar. I also find menthol and leather in there. The finish is long and lightly bitter with roasted wood and a medicinal note i can't put my finger on.

Sehr frisch, schweres Karamell, Hustensaft, Harz, Holz und dann noch die typischen Teer und Gumminoten. Schwer, voll und perfekt geschmolzen. Wooooow!! Sehr würzig und voll im Mund. Viel Holz und Gewürze im Abgang. Phänomenale Nase, sehr frisch. Danach zwar toll, aber sehr holzdominiert. Was ja nicht verwunderlich ist.

verkostet zusammen mit dem Breeze. Der Breeze wirkt an der Nase etwas runder, karamelliger und irgendwie kommen Assoziationen von Bohnerwachs auf (aus diesen ‚schrägen’ Tuben wie sie es früher gab). Der Roop kommt etwas frischer und stechender daher, Bergamotte und Kiefernholz im Hintergrund. Sind beide an der Nase noch eher zurückhaltend, kommen die Werkstatt-Noten am Gaumen dann aber brachial, einfach köstlich 🤤 Auch am Gaumen finde ich den Breeze etwas ausgewogener. Der Alkohol ist beim Roop nicht ganz so gut eingebunden.

Eher auf der dreckigen Seite, aber trotzdem hohes Niveau!

Petite déception ici, pas très très Caroni. Très loin du Last

Präfazit: für einen Velier Caroni, ganz nett Der Jahrgang 96, ist definitiv noch als solcher zu erkennen. Allerdings ist der Rum schon sehr auf der dreckigen Seite, ob ich hier wirklich blind auf 96 gekommen wäre, weiß ich nicht. Das macht den Rum auf der einen Seite sehr spannend und abwechslungsreicher, auf der anderen Seite schwebt über allem so sehr der Alkohol, dass da in der Nase nicht mehr all zu viel anzukommen scheint. Im Mund kommen für mein Empfinden sehr viel Menthol und Kräuter durch. Guter Rum, bleibt jedoch hinter der Konkurrenz klar zurück

In der Nase nicht ganz so zurückhaltend wie „Breeze“. Am Gaumen aber ebenfalls zu holzig und trocken.

Wow verdammt lecker. Der Gaumen gibt her was die Nase verspricht.
