Gemeinsam mit Leo Tomczak auf dem 11. GRF verkostet und kann Leos Einschätzung hier in allen Belangen nur zustimmen. Dass dieser Caroni vor allem aufgrund des Finishes nicht wirklich gelungen ist, wird erst recht klar, wenn man ihn parallel mit dem "Slippery" (RX451) verkostet, wie wir es getan haben.

Einsteiger Caroni, der ohne das Sherryfass sicher besser rüberkommen würde. Sehr rund, fast zu flach. Netter Sipper auch für Nicht-Nerds. Preislich zu hoch.
