This bottle is pretty expensive now, but being able to sample it while on a relaxing trip to The Netherlands won't blast too big a hole in my wallet. This one has to rest for a good while or it will bite you and burn your eyes. Also try with water to release even more flavours. The nose is alcoholic before resting but the the Caroni comes to life with rubber, tar and petrol trailed by fruit, chocolate and a hint of wood and molasses. The palate is intense, complex and well balanced, warm and lightly woody with molasses, fruit, chocolate and tobacco as well as a hint of spices. The finish is forever with wood, rubber and tar as well as a jmhint of caramel.
