“Superbe. On retrouve ce que l'on avait aimé du 2017 en ex-Caroni. Avec une finale gourmande, saline, réglissée.”

“Quel nez extraordinaire ! Très Jamaique au premier avec beaucoup d’alcool (esters) mais pas de vernis ce qui lui confère un nez exceptionnel ! Bouche également alcoolique mais étrangement avec de la mâche, gourmand et ça finit même sur quelque chose de très patissier !”
