Ein eher atypischer Caroni-Vertreter. Anfänglich noch die bekannten Werkstattnoten. Diese weichen aber schnell eher trocken/fruchtigen Noten, Karamell, Vanille und Gewürzen. Im Geschmack eine wahrnehmbare Süße. Insgesamt eher im milden Bereich, nicht das was man von einem Caroni vermuten würde. Zum Einstieg gut, für Fortgeschrittene fehlt etwas Komplexität.

Durch das Port Finish deutlich abgerundet.
