“On the nose it does not give its best, in fact it seems less strong than expected. On the palate, however, it arrives with all its typical tar and barrel strength. A great Caroni!”

“Un beau Caroni de 98 avec du fruit d’abord puis des arômes d’atelier mécanique. La bouche est suave avec du chocolat au lait, des fruits tropicaux et un boisé noble. La finale est longue à souhait, sur le caoutchouc, le fumé et le boisé. Verre vide comme du chocolat noir et des fruits. Il me plaît beaucoup et sera sans doute meilleur avec de l’oxydation.”
