Jetzt versteh ich aber gar nix mehr. Wie kann man diesen Top Caroni so schlecht bewerten?
Klar ein Kirsch oder Blackadder ist noch etwas besser,aber der 21er spielt schon in der Caroni Oberliga.
Für mich noch einen Tick besser als der 17 jährige aus der Serie.
Daher gebe ich jetzt 10 Punkte,klar ,Das ist hoch ,ein Kirsch müsste dann 11 oder gar 12 Punkte haben ,aber a) gibt es kaum Welche und b) kennt ihn daher auch kaum Jemand.
Der 21er ist im Moment noch problemlos zu haben und der Preis ist mit 220 Euro in Ordnung.
In ein paar Jahren wird es solche Caronis nicht mehr geben und über 220 Euro wird man lachen
Beautiful mahogany color. On the nose, there are very fruity notes with very light aroma of classic caroni bitumen. After a while, empyreumatic notes of smoke and tobacco arrive. There are also wax notes of old oak furniture and also leather. In the mouth, the oak, wax, bitumen are always present with a beautiful complexity in the fruity aromas. A very nice final super long. A very nice rum, superior to the 17 years but it requires a very long aeration.
I’m surprised, I did not expect this sweetness from a Caroni?? It is actually mild and easy sipper, still it’s 57 abv ?? Amazing. No doubt my new Caroni favorit. All the classic notes are there, but it is so well balanced. Recommended !
Today I have an 21y old Caroni from Luka. It's not rare yet but maybe one day.
Wonderful dirty and fruity nose. The balance is very good with leather, tar, black currant and oak. It's smooth, not like 57 abv.
The taste is as balanced as the nose. In the start are all the pretty Caroni flavors like leather, tar and black currant. The middle taste continues with tanins, medicine, firmint and dark fruits. In the end I get leather and dark fruits again.
The start of the finish is again with tannins instead of spice. After that I get all the beautiful and dirty aromas again.
It tastes old, but also smooth, very balanced and intensive. It's a very beautiful Caroni and represents the Velier bottlings in a very gently way. Would rate it with 92 points.
Nose: leather, tar, firmint, black currant, plum, oak, barrel

Had this at a bar off of the suggestion from the owner. I originally wanted Kirk and Sweeny but he was out of it. This was not good at all. Ordered beat, and felt the burn immediately. Went back after about 5 minutes and it was still the same. Added a few drops of water which made it worse. After about 30 minutes all I could taste were leather and ink notes. Had to chug the remaining and order Zacapa 23 to get the flavors out of my mouth. Not worth the cost this time around.
High on alcohol, very strong bite which goes straight through the nose. Killed my tongue and i couldnt taste more. Definitely not my thing.
starts with characteristic petroleum then goes burnt wood, molasses, bourbonic vanilla, ...
The texture, sweet and purified(?) ester, long and deep finish is just awesome.
Very Caroni tasty rum but the price is ...
After having tasted all the other offerings in this series of Caroni from Velier, I had the opportunity to taste the 21-year old. While not being the best of the bunch, it is still one hell of a rum.
Nose: Vanilla, petrol, mint, smoke and figs
Taste: Liquorice, oak, smoke, tar, menthol and petrol
Overall: It is no secret, that I love Caroni and try to get me as much as posible, while there is still some of it out there. This is one of the more well-rounded Caronis, which takes away a bit of the Caroni-charm, but it is still a fantastic rum, that you should try if you get the chance.
