Un Caroni au profil complet mais discret au nez, assez gourmand et tourné vers le goudron, le chêne, le cuir et le menthol avant que des fruits rouges et des agrumes ne pointent le bout de leur nez. Le goût typique de Caroni se retrouve en bouche mais en beaucoup plus doux et chocolaté. L’ensemble est huileux et rond mais manque d’arômes et de puissance pour être au niveau des autres Caroni. La finale est moyennement longue, en deçà des attentes en matière de goût. Les arômes de cuir, de réglisse et de menthol se mêlent aux notes épicées et caramélisées, de tabac et de chocolat mais l’ensemble peine à rester en bouche et à convaincre. Un Caroni subtil qui aurait besoin de quelques degrés supplémentaires pour être plus expressif.

einer der wenigen typischen caronis die mir tatsächlich gefallen, metallisch, würzig, schwer und dreckig. nicht so übertrieben nur nach Rost und Metall wie andere heutige Abfüllungen sondern wirklich noch schön ausgewogen und ölig.
