Ein gerader Caroni… mit überzeugender Nase.. am Gaumen nicht ganz so intensiv und komplex… aber durchaus gut! Besonders die durchgehende dreckige und beerige Note überzeugt!

Nose: Overwhelming smells of tar, rubber, bicycle tube pair with some berries (raspberry, blackberry..), a bit minty and for sure the barrel 😜. Mouth: Tar, Rubber, bicycle tube with a lot of spiciness. The tastes of the berries are well noted. Here you‘ll find a lot more various notes like: licorice, roasted almonds, dark chocolate, espresso, toasted barrel(oak). Finish: Medium-Long with some notes of the barrel(oak), dark chocolate, smoky, espresso.. Very delicious (not dirty) finish 🤓 I enjoyed this one a lot. Very solid Caroni with all classic edges and a smooth elegant finish.

Herrlich, fruchtige Nase. Toller, entspannter 1997er Caroni

Profile picture of user
84/100

Nose is intense and distinctive Caroni. However, this one is on the more tamed side. Dirty notes are balanced by some fruits (I get mostly berries) / wood / menthol and rather sweet/caramelley notes. Same on the palate: intense dark notes, some dirt, some fruits. Very enjoyable and balanced bottling.
