Sehr intensiver Geschmack mit dem typischen Caroni-Noten, die lange am Gaumen bleiben!

schöne Nase mit getrockneten Früchten, Fahrradschlauch, Pfeifentabak, Politur, Karamell, Orangenabrieb und Menthol. Am Gaumen verbrannt und fleischig, lediglich der Abgang ist etwas kurz.

Liegt schwer auf der Zunge. Teer und Gummi gepaart mit getrockneten Früchten. Der Abgang ist erdig wie Whisky, unerwartet sauber und etwas fruchtig. In der Nase Teer und Erde. Man bleibt am Ende etwas ratlos zurück. Er ist trinkbar, nicht schlecht, aber irgendwie fehlt es ihm an Charakter. Vielleicht schon zu typisch Caroni.

Typische Caroni-Noten… angenehm an der Nase und am Gaumen… der Abgang so mittellang! Alkohol extrem gut eingebunden…. Aber um ein Top-Ergebnis zu bekommen, fehlt ihm etwas an Intensität
