„Jour 6 du calendrier Samples de Luxe. Un nez jamaïcain mais pas de chez Hampden. Fruits, pomme et coings. Très beau mais assez unilatéral. Alcool très bien intégré. Une bouche vive ! Une cave où reposent des fruits à pépins. Un boisé présent mais pas trop. Une finale assez longue et équilibrée. Un bonheur, même si la complexité et la profondeur ne sont pas vraiment au rendez-vous. Regouté et un peu moins bon par rapport à d’autres Clarendons.“

„Another great Jamaican. This one is strong on the wood without being super dominant and on top of that you have fruit and spices, some pastries and lovely marzipan. Price to quality at release is pretty good in my mind.“

„Beautiful Clarendon from Corman Collins. The nose is balanced and complex. It oscillates between fruit (pineapple, banana, raisin, cherry), spicy wood and pastry (vanilla, baked apple, pepper, almond and caramel) and medicinal notes. There's also a lovely, well-structured and pleasant harmony on the nose. On the palate, it's dry, very fruity (exotic fruit, cherry, dried fruit) and the wood has left its mark. There's a lovely spicy profile of aniseed, licorice and pepper, all adding a certain elegance. Behind this lies a bitterness on leather and coffee, as well as some roasted notes. The alcohol is well integrated. The finish lingers on bitterness, wood, spices, chocolate, dried fruit and cherry. A Clarendon that's off the beaten track, with an original, tasty and controlled profile.“

„Unconventional profile on the nose. Great in the mouth. Spreads like an explosion in the mouth. Lots of fruit, cherry, banana, very good. The only thing I do not like are the light soapy notes.“

„Am somewhat torn - in itself an exciting rum, beautiful complexity and quite a full bouquet. Somehow, however, the impression remains that nevertheless something is missing and the rum therefore seems unfinished - for me should be a little more fruit on the palate. A potential splitter, but you should definitely have tried.“

„One of the best nose, explosion of fruit (Jamaica style) with a super elegant woody. It makes you travel, it goes from the fruit, to the wood, to the solvent and takes us to all sides. The mouth is in 2 parts, first an explosion of fruit worthy of the nose, then it calms down and comes back with a lot of black tea/coffee style roasting. The finish remains bitter with a hint of fruitiness.“

„The nose is incredible, we would like to stay in it all evening. The mouth is quite heavy, thick texture with an explosion of aromas and then comes the black tea very bitter and less pleasant. The finish is softer“
