“Mir fehlen ein paar Prozente, aber er ist etwas runder und nicht so bitter wie der 36. und 37. Release.”

“Die Nase empfinde ich als klassisch Caroni, dunkle Beeren und ein Hauch von Teer und Tankstelle, das fängt schon mal gut an. Am Gaumen ist er anfangs erstaunlich leicht und etwas süßlich, dann setzt sich die teerhaltige Note durch, gepaart mit etwas Brombeere und Veilchen, dann entwickeln sich schwere Aromen von Mokka, dunkle Schokolade und Lakritz. Das Ganze ist schon ziemlich komplex! Der Abgang ist so mittellang und mit den Gewürzen fortgesetzt. Ein klasse aber nicht herausragender Caroni”
