This one was a bit disappointing and I had expected more from a Caroni this age. The Caroni notes are there but very weak. The ABV on the other hand is there and very dominant. It didn't settle down until 45+ minutes and then it still wasn't all there yet. I do like the smoky touch.

In der Nase ist der Alkohol etwas zu präsent. Am Gaumen wird man aber mit cremig, süß-dreckigen Assoziationen belohnt. Schöner 1997er Caroni. Nach 30 Minuten unter dem Glasdeckel verfliegt die alkoholische Schärfe in der Nase, ist aber immer noch präsent.

Die 1997er Caronis zeichnen sich durch ein recht prägnantes Abbild der üblichen Gummi- und Teernoten aus. Dazu kommt auch hier ein kräftiger Einschlag von Holz, Gewürzen, Leder und Lakritz. Minimale Süsse durch dezente Trockenfrüchte, die mich an Rosinen erinnern. Insgesamt schon sehr trocken und herb - Caroni im geschmacklichen Extrem.
