This was a good day because two people decided to bring Caroni's. We never complain about people bringing Caroni to a tasting. The nose is also typical Caroni, though lighter than the previous one on the wood. Fruit and nutmeg follows the tar and rubber as well as a hint of chocolate. The chocolate is more obvious in the glass after an hour empty. The palate is well balanced and oily again with the typical tar and rubber. Wood and fruit then hits you followed by vanilla, caramel and chocolate. There is a hint of smoke in there as well. The finish is long and woody with tar, rubber and dried fruit.
