“Very pleasant nose. A bit too peppery on the palate. On balance, however, a nice representative of the 1998 vintage.”

“I think this is a light Caroni but not in a bad way because it has some other flavours to kind of compensate. The nose is light and has smoky wood, rubber, varnish, vanilla and a good portion of wet tobacco. The palate is complex and well balanced between smoky wood and fruits with rubber, varnish, vanilla and some tobacco. The finish is long, lightly dry and fruity with smoky wood. Very good in its own way.”

“Rather light Caroni which gets dominated by some leathery / woody notes and dark fruits in the background. Gets a bit stingy/peppery after a while. Not much of the expected heavy industrial notes, but still pleasant. The HTR marque seems a bit misleading?”
