“Ein wunderschöner Caroni!! Eher zum Genießen. Viel getrocknete Früchte, Holz und Gewürze. Flüssiges Lakritz. Teer und Gummi sind insgesamt nur schwach wahrnehmbar. Sehr rund, warm und ausgewogen. Ich hatte Glück, eine halbvolle Flasche in einem Restaurant erstehen zu können.”

“The Epic Velier Caroni Tasting: Komplex mit pointierter Süsse und schweren Fruchtnoten, die durch die Fasseinflüsse, herbe Würzigkeit sowie dezente Caroni-Drecknoten einen Kontrast erhalten. Eines der Releases aus der vermutlichen „Paxarette-Ära“, das trotz 24-jähriger tropischer Lagerung mit Raffinesse und Vielschichtigkeit punkten kann.”
