Tasted in smokers bar, so perhaps not quite accurate. Does not seem like a typical Caroni, aromas are too restrained for that. Nose clearly beats palate, so palate does not keep what the nose promises of decreasing turpentine and increasing raisin sweetness, but is different, rather a bit dull and musty. Perhaps the half-empty bottle has also stood too long in the bar. Overall: Yes, you can do well and happy on a relaxed evening in a cozy pub, solid, but leaves no Caroni euphoria.

Pleasant and warm nose on solvents. Some coffee, marzipan and raisins. Typical of a greedy Caroni. Quite powerful mouthfeel on smoky licorice and hints of tar. Metallic nuts coated with a vanilla sweetness. The finish is rather sustained and bitter on spices. Thank you Loic Lidjeu to have made us discover this sample in the blind with mika. Here is a Caroni quite sweet and accessible while keeping its typicality. And whose release price at the time was under 100€ ...
