Un Caroni au profil pour le moins original : à part les hydrocarbures initiaux, on ressent surtout les fruits (abricot, zestes d’orange et fruits secs), le tabac, l’herbe, les épices, le miel, le caramel et le chocolat. Assez doux et déroutant pour un Caroni. L’attaque en bouche débute sur les hydrocarbures avant de fondre vers les épices, le tabac, la vanille et les fruits tropicaux. Un profil légèrement fumé mais toujours en douceur. La finale est assez longue, plongée dans le caoutchouc, un peu de goudron, une pointe salée, des notes terreuses et fraîches d’herbe et de tabac. Une sensation de rôtie et d’amertume se font ressentir. Un profil différent de Caroni, bien intégré mais qui manque légèrement de profondeur pour être au top niveau.

Première dégustation ! Un hydrocarbure mielleux et parfumé, très différents des veliers mais délicieux. Le côté caoutchouc se ressent légèrement sur l'attaque, se retrouve mélangé à des fruits secs, à ce miel qui lui donne un côté légèrement huileux très appréciable, et reviens plus marqué en finale.
