C’est très bien fait. Après une longue aération, on retrouve tous les marqueurs qui font aimer un caroni. C’est un régal. Avec une belle longueur.

Easy sipping Caroni.

1er nez sur le métallique et le caoutchouc puis viens la suite, c'est rond et attirant. L'attaque est douce et chaude mais ne manque pourtant pas de saveurs et d'intensité, une compote de fruit et de caoutchouc onctueuse comme un chocolat chaud ♨ C'est très agréable.
