“Recht untypische Nase für einen Caroni. Viel Vanille, Bourbon und Nuss kommen zu den (eher dezenteren) Caroni-Noten dazu. Am Gaumen sehr zugänglich. Für eine Top-Bewertung fehlt etwas die Tiefe. Sehr gut integrierter Alkohol.”

“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!”

“Very round and balanced, stands out positively in the large number of 1998 releases. The typical HTR Caroni notes are recognizable, but embedded in an appealing bouquet of sweet tropical fruits, vanilla wood notes and fresh tobacco hints. Very balanced and therefore exciting to drink - a wide spectrum of heavy to fresh flavors is on offer here. Beautiful selection.”
