“Something different on the Caroni front for a change! In the nose first very nutty. Then fruit, at the end very floral (lavender!). The typical dirtyness is very, very restrained. Everything at the highest level. In the mouth then very woody, yet warm, full and good. Usual level, drops a bit in the mouth. Edit: In addition to the extreme fruitiness workshop odors, which I know in this form of no other Caroni.”
