Very likable jamaican from V&M. I like the phenomenal start in the nose. It’s lacks a bit in mouth and in the finish. Alcohol could be integrated better. Nose: delicious, complex, vanilla, oak, spicy, clove, solvents, rubber, glue, fruity, banana, citrus, peaches, cherry, overripe fruits, apricot Mouth: dry, creamy, funky, delicious, full bodied, balanced, woody, coffee, dark chocolate, smoky, spicy, clove, roasted, oak, papaya, mango Finish: long, dry, astringend, elegant, mocha, smoky, oak(woody), vanilla, dark chocolate, tannins, overriped bananas, burnt sugar, some notes of black tea, later on you’ll find some notes of honeycomb

Lässt mich etwas ratlos zurück. Die Nase ist jung, fruchtig, zugänglich mit eher leichter, vanilliger Fassnuance. Der Mund dann zu unbalanciert, adstringent viel Holz und dazu eine recht saure eher unreife Fruchtigkeit. Das will sogar nicht zum angenehm leichten Einstieg passen. Im Abgang nochmal ein mentholiger Frischekick. Die Nase ist einfach, aber schön, dann geht es drunter und drüber. In ein paar Jahren vielleicht ein interessanter Batch.

Nicht der beste Clarendon, aber ein gelungener Vertreter des Stils. Deutliche Röstnoten vom Fass, dazu Fruchtester und medizinische Anklänge.

Am der Nase Kokosnuss, rote Früchte, Gewürze und Holz, am Gaumen die volle Ladung Tannine, die leider die anderen Noten und den Abgang etwas überlagern.

C’est bon, mais c’est le moins bon de la dernière série de valinch.

Die Nase ist klasse und verändert sich von Minute zu Minute…das fühlt sich vielversprechend an.. am Gaumen dann leicht nur über Durchschnitt, ebenso wie der Abgang

Le nez est génial.. Par contre en bouche c'est moins funky qu'un jam traditionnel.. Mais ca reste très bon malgré ce côté sec.. J'ai bien aimé tout de même
