REVIEWS

WHISKY NOTES - 90/100

Nose: ripe bananas, praline and cedar wood come out first, with slightly less diesel this time. Still some tar and liquorice though. Old brass. Dried herbs. After a while it also shows red berries, toffee and menthol. Not the most extreme Caroni, this is relatively round, but really nice.

Mouth: more power now. Heavier tar and liquorice, shoe polish and saline black olives. Thyme and oregano. Deep menthol and hints of Fisherman’s Friend. Luckily there’s still a dark fruity side and some heavy caramel to keep things in check.

Finish: long, still these sweet berries and brown sugar, a little herbal honey, dark oak and a mint.

Weighty yet with balancing sweeter notes. While nosing it I thought it was going to be a frankly soft version, but on the palate you are reminded that this is proper Caroni. Overall a great experience.
