A unique Caroni with a harmoniously dirty profile, whispers of fruit and dry tobacco. Smooth despite its robust strength, it invites with a rubbery, smoky nose and finishes with a warm, spicy linger. A delightful yet intense Trinidadian gem.

“On the one hand, many typical Caroni notes, but the dirty character remains tightly held in check. Unusual are the distinct green notes of tea and tobacco. Overall, quite a change from other 1998 continental-aged Caronis, but not enough for the top group in my book.”
