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.

While this is a Caroni there is something unique about it. Even at this high ABV it aomes in smooth and it's more fruity than your average caroni. The typical Caroni notes are still there though :-) There is a bit of smoke to the spices and fruits on the nose well blegnede with the typical Caroni notes. Tha palate is nicely warm with some wood, spices and fruits. There is a very light touch of chocolate which gets more powerful in the empty glass. The finish is medium long and warm with nice spices and some rubber. I think that with a drop of water this could be a very good beginner Caroni. Price to quality is OK.

Nice nose with dirt and some fruits. On the palate seit again, however, combined with herb / tea / tabacco notes. Intense.

kaum Caroni-Werkstatt, erinnert mich eher an St. Lucia, ansonsten aber rund und durchaus spannend.

Guter, typischer 98er Caroni!
