A bold Caroni with fiery spice, rubber, and tar, balanced by a subtle sweetness of caramel and dried fruit. Layers of roast, coffee, and a hint of licorice deliver complexity, while chocolate and vanilla notes add depth. Smooth with a powerful punch.

“Another rekindling at the GRF and I really like this profile. ----- Back on track with a nicely balanced release with all the right flavours. Love the chocolate and raisin that blends well with a light coffee note in between the tar and rubber.”
