This is not your regular Caroni in my mind, this one is slightly different. The nose is alcoholic with tar and plastic, trailed by brown sugar, berries and a hint of flower. The palate is also alcoholic and oily with tar, metal, wood and spices trailed by berries. The finish is long and warm with tar and spices. This one needs to rest and also a few drops of water before it really settles down from the high ABV. Price to quality is not that good.
