“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Pleasant that the long tropical aging does not turn into overly violent bitter notes here either. The tart notes are present, but in nice balance with the caramel, wood and spice notes. After repeated tasting, it is behind the sister release in honor of Sonny Black in a direct comparison for me, because in my opinion it clearly falls behind in terms of balance. However, it should not be forgotten that we are talking about Velier and Caroni in terms of benchmarks, so we are already at the highest level.”

“For me the best of the 6th release! Blind I would probably have guessed on a 2000, because but also a lot of dirty Caroni notes are present. But this complexity is simply the hammer!”

“The color, again a dream.Dense, full, balanced Caroni nose. Varnish, charred oak, tar and rubber. Compared to the Sonny Liston, um Black, fruitier and a bit fresher.In the mouth now warmer, more balanced and much more tar and rubber.Long finish, in the pan warmed condom.😃The nose I like the Sonny clearly better, but this is in the mouth a madness.”
