“A very good Caroni that I liked especially for its perfect balance and excellent aging. Both the nose and the taste is at a very high level. Especially by its ethereal florality, it stands out a little from other Caronis I have tasted so far. No idea in which fragrance profile the Chaconia is located, but flowers are definitely a small part of the aroma spectrum.”

“Nose What happens when you cross a beautiful V8 petrol engine with a bunch of flowers in your mind? Well, something like this first smell. It's a very, very atypical 1998 Caroni. Tons of raspberries. Fresh mangoes, rosewood and rose oil, demerara molasses and coconut oil. There is absolutely no rusty diesel exhaust pipes and burnt bicycle hoses as we know from most 1998s. That is a GOOD sign for our taste. From a distance, it is more reminiscent of the fruity, floral profile of the Caroni 1991 Velier (the one with the samba dancers). After a while, wine gum, strawberry Palate First impression: sweet, well balanced and very oily texture. Let's concentrate on the aromas now. Second impression: rape berries and strawberry jam, cedar. Also some roasted cassava and tamarind roots.”
