Toll trinkbarer Caroni. Eher dreckig, wenig Teer, wenig Holzreife, er könnte etwas kräftiger sein.

Avevo sentito pareri discordanti su questo caroni ma io l’ho trovato sublime! Mi piace molto il lato sporco che ha in tutta la sua degustazione!

Nose is really well balanced. Mouth is a bit dirtier. Good Caroni overall but not among the bests.

neben den typischen Caroni-Noten auch vieles was man auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt aufschnappen kann: Orange, Gewürznelken, Zimt, dazu eine gewisse Menthol-Frische. Ein wenig mehr ABV hätten vielleicht noch etwas mehr Power entfaltet.

In der Nase fast ein typischer Caroni und verheißungsvoll… am Gaumen verliert er aber dann deutlich… keine Caroni-Note sticht wirklich deutlich heraus… alles wird ein wenig bedient, aber nicht überzeugend! Auch der Abgang ist relativ kurz!

Au nez on reconnais rapidement que c'est Velier, dominé par le caoutchouc, les solvants en fond et des fruits. En bouche aussi ! les marqueurs Caroni sont bien présents. Un fumée/viande persistant qui se laisse remplacé par les typiques goudron et caoutchouc. Et le caoutchouc encore très présent le lendemain au réveil !

Sehr schöner Caroni-Vertreter mit allen typischen Werkstatt-Aromen.
