Another great Caroni though not on the gmheavy and of the sce, more like a medium heavy version. The Caroni flavours are there and very present so you're never in doubt of who made it. The nose is well balanced and a medium heavy Caroni. Tar, rubber and roasted oak hit you first closely followed by lots of fruit and some cinnamon. The palate takes off where the nose left off. Smoky oak with tar and rubber, dried fruit and spices. I like that there is a spicy tinge to the palate. The finish is long with oak, spices, rubber and a hint of raisin.

Délicieux ! Un mélange complex ! Je kiff 🥰 S'il avait été un peu moins réduit ça aurait été excellent.

Schöne 96er Caroni-Noten erkennbar, aber leider zu sehr verdünnt!

Puh, wie auch beim Diamond aus der Single Cask-Serie stellt sich die Frage: Warum nur musste man hier verdünnen? Die Nase hat noch sehr viel Charme, das Potenzial ist klar erkennbar. Am Gaumen wirkt die Verwässerung dann aber sehr unvorteilhaft, die Aromen vermischen sich und der verbleibende Eindruck ist eher breiige Substanz statt echtem Caroni-Konzentrat (wir haben immerhin den Ausnahmejahrgang 1996 vor uns). Wahrhaft schade, denn hier war mit Sicherheit mehr drin.

Un peu déçu, très léger. La finale en revanche est très agréable.
