very good Caroni. balanced enough. so similar to Corman Collins series: 1988 21yr, Drink it Zipped it and the Black Cat Bar. same profile. just less some red fruits, berries or some hints of cocoa/chocolates. but more concerned and stronger, this one integrates some unimpressive elements. So I prefer this one to Corman Collins series. light and implicit, typical Caroni and easy to drink. great!
