“Nose is very nice and balanced. Adding more intense fruity notes to the 97 profile. This is a very nice nose out it the batch. Very nice on the palate as well. Well balanced between dirt, dried fruits and some sweetness. Top notch out of the 97 batch.”

“I always love when there is a Caroni in the tasting and this one was no exception. The nose is typical Caroni with tar and rubber in the woodiness. Fruits, vanilla and licorice compliment the overall nose. The oily palate takes off where the nose finishes, and the tarry rubber, wood is very well balanced with the fruit and vanilla. The finish is very long and woody with rubber, tropical fruits and vanilla.”
