Wunderschön gediegene Nase, Politur und Holzreife en Masse. Mit etwas Wasser flüssige Fishermans Friends. Nicht sehr dreckig. Im Mund ölig und dicht. Eine Chemiefabrik mit Karamell. Würzig und komplex. Im Abgang dann Holz und Karamell. Ein toller Caroni. Teer und die verbrannten Noten jedoch sehr zurückhaltend. Mehr davon bitte…

In der Nase zeigt sich dieser Caroni zurückhaltend. Im Mund dagegen ist er schon sehr gefällig. Er ist extrem süß. Karamellllllll. Wenn man nicht wissen würde, dass Luca Gargano niemals künstlichen Zucker hinzugeben würde, nun, man könnte es hier fast in Frage stellen … Nach etwas Zeit im Glas wird dieser Rum immer weicher. Der Alkohol ist elegant eingebunden. Würde der Rum nicht ein kleines Vermögen kosten, würde dieser Caroni definitiv in meine Sammlung wandern.

Wow, this one was very different and kind of sweet compared to all other Caroni's I have tried! The nose is wonderful with the typical tar and rubber notes with roasted oak on top. Fruits, and vanilla follows and I also get a bit of nuts in there. The palate is very well balanced when thinking about the ABV. Complex, sweet and oily with roasted oak topped with some rubber and tar. Fruit, vanilla, leather and caramel make the palate complete. Pretty sweet for a Caroni, but I know they would never add anything to sweeten the rum. The finish is long and has roasted oak, rubber and caramel to it. The caramel is very present in this particular release.

Großer Caroni und einer der besten 96er, den ich je im Glas hatte. Absolut geil gereift, in der Nase ein Traum und im Mund mit das beste, das ich je hatte. Outstanding

2 drops of water, 2 hours in a glencairn glass before the tasting. It's a beautiful Caroni, very elegant and deep. The best bottle of the 5th employees release. Gorgeous!

verkostet zusammen mit dem Roop. 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.

Beim zweiten Versuch gefällt er mir viel besser. Sehr intensiv und würzig. Toller Caroni.

Nez charmeur mais bouche trop forte, à réserver aux fins de dégustations. Un peu déçu.

Ausgewogener als der Roop

Der Breeze weist die typischen Caroni-Charakteristiken auf (Autowerkstatt, Gummi, Teer). Jedoch nicht so ausgeprägt wie man das von einem 96er Jahrgang erwarten könnte. Hier kommen auch rote Fruchtnoten, Vanille, Trockenfrüchte durch. Er benötigt eine lange Standzeit.

Sehr zurückhaltend in der Nase. Am Gaumen zu bitter und adstringierend.

A good rum, but too much wood for my taste.
