“This is a another rare bottle and I was really happy that my friend got a full set and I could buy some samples. This is a great Caroni and if you get the chance you should give it a go. Make sure you rest it for a good while so that you get the full experience. The nose is a clear Caroni with tar, varnish and smoky wood trailed by cherries and vanilla. The palate is fruity with tar, wood, tobacco, leather and wonderful vanilla. The finish is long with fruits, tar, wood and light vanilla. What I like is that the flavours stick to your palate for a very long time. Price to quality can be argued but it is a great release.”

“Once again a classic 98 Caroni profile, quite clear in expression: wood, caramel, dark chocolate, then tar with subtle spices and dried fruit. Especially in direct comparison to the first 98 release of the series unfortunately with not really round integrated alcohol.”
