“Very intense flavor with the typical Caroni notes that linger long on the palate!”

“A Caroni Single Cask that flexes its muscles from the very first moment in the glass. On the nose, we find the distillery's typical markers, with notes of hydrocarbons, powerful empyreumatic notes that emerge in the glass and scent the nostrils, but also some hints of menthol, dried and exotic fruits and a touch of caramel that embellish a heavy, powerful and grimy profile. On aeration, strange olive notes appear. Very pleasant, intense, fresh and complex. The attack on the palate is a veritable explosion. This explosion reveals notes of tar and rubber, extreme smokiness, warm spices, leather, burnt wood, menthol and mineral flavors with a very rough, rocky edge. The bitterness makes itself felt, the caramel and dried fruit being very superficial here. Although the alcohol is fairly well integrated and the texture is rather creamy, the taste profile is very heavy, dry and intense. It's enough to treat a sore throat (or even wash out the stomach). The finish is of infinite length, carried by bitterness, smoky wood, empyreumatic hydrocarbon notes, leather and spices that leave no room for the slightest hint of subtlety. Clearly not the first Caroni to try in a tasting. This is an extreme profile, which needs a lot of time to reveal its potential and be appreciated at its true worth. Although it's opulent and powerful, it lacks a touch of finesse to be among the best.”

“Very elegant nose in which the alcohol is perfectly integrated. On the palate a tad too dry for a top rating.”
