Une véritable Masterclass de chez Caroni. On retrouve au nez le profil lourd typique avec le goudron, le caoutchouc, le menthol, le cuir et les épices, mais les fruits exotiques et les agrumes apportent une gourmandise exquise au profil olfactif, auquel s’ajoutent les solvants et une touche caramélisée pour un résultat complet, complexe et intense. La palais est divin, combinant parfaitement le profil fumé, de solvants et d’hydrocarbures d’un côté avec la gourmandise des fruits et du caramel de l’autre. C’est huileux, sale, mais aussi puissant, subtil et très complexe. La finale est interminable, sur des arômes épicés, du goudron, du caramel, du menthol et des fruits tropicaux. Une véritable perle de Trinidad.

Un superbe Caroni, plus gourmand que le High Proof, ce qui le rend un peu meilleur !

Quelle dégustation ! La trame Caroni est bien présente, sur le côté lourd, mais s'accompagne ici d'une gourmandise, sur les fruits et les notes de noix caramélisées, qui se complètent à merveille

Tout simplement exceptionnel. D'une grande finesse et une palette complète.
