Now this is some good stuff
On the nose there are notes of vanilla, woody notes and candied fruits ; apricot, mangoes.
In the mouth finds the candied fruits with notes of honeys with the wooded in backdrop.
Nice length in the mouth very persistent, one continues on the candied fruits with a lot of wood that leads us to the spices (cloves, cinnamon, ginger). But the guideline and typical of Caroni is asphalt, this persistant note is the essence of this distillery.
Near-perfect rum from the Caroni Distillery, 110 proof and 17-years-old. Burnt sugar, gingerbread, raisins, nutmeg...and the always-present freshly paved asphalt and burning tires. Layers of flavor assault your senses in wave after wave of amazing complexity. Caroni is the LSD of rums.
Das hier ist schon ein verdammt guter Caroni,herrlich ausgeprägte Caroni typische Aromen und doch einigermassen zahm,schöner langer Abgang,etwas Honig,dezente Süsse.
Ein Must Have.
Mit rund 100 Müllos geschenkt in Anbetracht der momentanen Preisentwicklung.
Der 21er ist zwar noch einen guten Tick besser aber nicht mehr als doppelt so gut wie der Preis des 21er mit etwa 220 Bankrottos in der Ausgabe aktuell
Kaufen Kaufen und Bunkern was das Zeug hält,Das wird ein Stück Rumgeschichte Die es so nie wieder geben wird
This molasse distilled rum has a good body. Nosing offers a wide aroma range of wood, burned tyres, tar together with a distinct presence of alcohol. However, this is checked by a higher degree of sweetness and fruitiness (orange) compared with the 12 or 15 year Caronis. The palate continues these note the nosing has already revealed. Finish is nice and extended and did stay for some minutes. Overall a nice heavy rum.
I tried this rum yesterday evening and it literally blew me away. I'm usually a whisky-drinker but this rum comes really close to the better whisky's. But you really need to take your time to enjoy this craftsmenship. With a drop of water it was even better for me :-). very complex and many different layers with vanilla & some gasoline / rubber. But very balenced and so enjoyable.
