gefällt mir ganz gut ... nicht so dreckig wie oft bei Caroni (klar viele lieben es genau deshalb) ich finde das zusammenspiel von den typischen Caroni notes (Gummi,Leder,Teer usw) mit dem doch schön Fruchtigem Charakter toll. Anklänge von Schokolade und Trockenem Obst .

Weder Fisch noch Fleisch. Nicht richtig dreckig, wenig Süße von allem ein bisschen ohne eine klar erkennbare Linie. Erinnert mich an den Bristol Caroni 10 VSOC.

Kein besonders guter Caroni. Es fehlt an Charakter, etwas flach, Alkohol nicht gut eingebunden.

Even though this Caroni certainly lacks in depth it certainly is a pleasant easy sipper that has most flavors of the classic Caroni profile.

Verkostet gegen den Bristol 1997 (2015er Abfüllung). Nicht schlecht, aber auch wirklich nicht besonders gut. Sowohl Nase, als auch Geschmack haben schöne Facetten, aber wirken nicht besonders komplett und rund. Es fehlt Tiefe. Schmecken tut er trotzdem. Die Nase ist hier noch etwas besser als der Gaumen. Ich finde das SBS Set hier klar den besseren Deal

Nicht sonderlich interessanter Caroni. Wenig Dreck, leicht säuerlicher Abgang. Hier fehlt mir das harmonische Zusammenspiel aus Frucht, Süße und Dreck.
