“Unfortunately, not my cup of tea. Much juniper, wood and bitterness.”

“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Hat eine überraschende Nuance von Fruchtestern, aber natürlich bleibt der Caroni-Stil unverkennbar. Hohes Niveau, aber keine 96er Spitzenklasse mehr.”

“A special release from Velier, however its probably not their best Caroni. In saying that, its high praise indeed as it's still a full blown tropical aged 25 year old beast from THAT now closed distillery! You can tell its DNA, ashpelt and rubber, and there is a nice sweetness to it as well. Lots of wood which is probaly why I am getting a slight bitter note? Spicy.”
