“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Exquisite 94 Caroni. Classic profile with decent dirt, but balanced sweetness, wood, spice, coffee, licorice and mineral notes. The Hangar series is definitely top notch Caroni.”

“For me, the winner of the 94s. Very intense, relatively round for a 94, but still a lot of Caroni DNA!”
