“Great, typical 1997 Caroni nose. Powerful in relation to the alcohol content. Perfectly balanced. Beautiful mouthfeel, powerful and warm. Very nice, long finish. The prototype of an (excellent) 1997 Caroni. Everything there, no extras.”

“Very good, delicious, powerfull Caroni from 1997! Tar, Varnish, Bicycle tube in the foreground, followed from a nice woody note with some hints of roasted almonds. Sometimes also some fruity notes like banana, cherries and passion fruit comes through! The alcohol is integrated very well! Very dirty and delicious!🤤”

“You can tell that this is a younger Caroni, which already has many dirty notes. Alcohol well integrated, nice complexity!”
