“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Together with Paradise #5, this remains my favorite Caroni from the 2000 vintage. In direct comparison with significantly more menthol on the nose. On the palate with a powerful taste, great residual sweetness, woodiness and a pointed presence of the individual aromas. Absolute top class.”
