Sehr schöner Einstiegs-Caroni in wunderbarer Trinkstärke. Röstiger und mehr Karamell als beim 12er.

Étant pas un fan de Caroni, je le trouve assez agréable et accessible. Pas trop porté sur le goudron avec de belles notes fruités et boisé, même si les marqueurs typique de cette distillerie ne sont pas bien loin.

Compared to the 12 year old this one is fruitier and it has more complexity and smoothness to it. The nose is typical Caroni and it's rounded and intense with a bit of industrial flavour to it. The palate is very complex and fruity with smoky oak to it. The finish is very long and fruity with smoked oak to it. Price to quality is good.

Première plongée dans Caroni, un coup de cœur, qui viendra est supplanté par le 16 ans derrière!

Continuons la trilogie Caroni avec le 15 ans. Donc 3 ans de plus de vieillissement que le 12ans et 2 degré en plus. Nez puissant sucré-fruité. Mélange de colle et goudron bien marqués. Moins accessible que le 12 ans en 1ère impression. En bouche c’est puissant, c’est chaud. Le boisé est omniprésent avec des notes de café. La finale est longue comme tous les Caroni. Je le trouve moins fun et agréable que le 12 ans.
