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.

More or less the same style as the 15y blend, which means less petrol-y and phenolic than some other Caronis. But if it is not an extreme one the balance is just perfect in this bottle. A great rum with all the complexity you are expecting for. The wood is of course very present but not so much after 21 years, after all. Only the pricetag was a joke, but just the sad consequence of years of stupid speculation on the previous Caroni bottles.

Une puissance et complexité qui s'affine avec le temps d'aération. un passe par tellement d’arômes en prenant son temps (30min)

Enjoyed a bottle of Caroni 21y after I got back home from London. Deep mahogany color. Old school bottle and label design. Surprisingly dry and woody and super fruity notes mixed with oak. Very strong burn at the end. Expensive gimmick rum to me.

Lidt for stærk til mig... men helt klar i familie med den fantastiske 15’er Dog mere potent....

Wow - this gear has more grunt than a truck load of pigs! Not for everyone - High on alcohol and it does have some bite - But a great piece of Trinidad`s rum history that once gone is gone forever. I got one bottle to drink and one to collect, along with the 17 yo and the 15 yo. I personally enjoyed this a lot but my wife does not agree! :)

Eigentlich ein Rum wie man ihn sich wünscht. Zumindest bisher kann ich mit den Caroni-Aromen aber nicht viel anfangen. Bei diesem hier war es besonders "schlimm".

Au nez on retrouve forcement les hydrocarbures propres aux Caroni mais dans une juste mesure, ça n’emporte pas tout sur son passage et une place est laissée à la vanille.
En bouche la térébenthine est plus présente mais est mêlée à un boisé et une touche floral qui rafraichie le tout.
C’est plus fruité sur la finale avec l’arrivé de saveurs de prune, pruneau et anis.

Heavy, rich and complex, but with a disgusting taste of petrol

High on alcohol, very strong bite which goes straight through the nose. Killed my tongue and i couldnt taste more. Definitely not my thing.

Aged 21 Years

Powerful and dry. Smells like in a lumber mill, being smoky and tarry. Furthermore there are notes of chewing tobacco, leather, licorice, roast lamb, almond biscuit and fruitcake.

Powerful and bold, complex and very spicy. Notes of chestnuts, almond biscuits, roasted almonds and tons of licorice. Furthermore I taste chewing tobacco and espresso.
