„I was expecting much more! A good rum that does not take off, however. The "sweet/pastry" aromas are barely hinted at, coconut and vanilla prevail. You can feel the imprint of continuous distillation, which in my opinion does not always succeed in giving magical rums. Medium unimpressive finish. It does not sound like a Jamaican at all, but a Barbados.“

„High quality column still which is very enjoyable - yet the alcohol is clearly noticeable. Would not have guessed Clarendon but there is just a little extra touch of fruits alongside your classic (high quality) column still notes which adds an interesting twist.“

„nice underdog in the Jamaica funky but all the more fruity and quaffable after banana bread, milk chocolate with hazelnuts, black pepper, wood, honey and cocoa. very tasty and still relatively affordable and well available.“

„Another great Velier in my mind. Once rested you get all the wonderful flavours from the glass even without lifting the glass to your nose. An intense very well balanced Clarendon. Fruity with light wood and it draws really nice curtains in the glass.“

„My last addition from the series, stood here for a long time, often tasted, but still no tasting notes...? Not at all...Nose: fruity-sweet-spicy attack. Right away with coconut and cream toffee, plus ripe peach and tangerine. The sweetness almost goes towards marshmallow. Behind that, cherry wood, a light smoky note and cocoa powder. Delicious and pleasant.Palate: intense and complex. Dry and slightly bitter at first, then salty before moving into spicy. Here then tart nutmeg with pecan, vanilla and then slightly towards umami. Out the back lemon zest with apple, but slightly metallic note and fresh green branches. A really good Mony taster.“

„I was looking for trying this rum, as up until now NRJ has always delivered a wonderful rum Experience! The nose is quite powerful, as the alcohol is pretty strong, then the fruity flavors starts to coming through (peach, apricot, coconut), followed by wood and vanilla. The palate is a total explosion: it starts really sweet, peaches that almost seems like covered in syrup, then the heat from the alcohol kicks in, followed by vanilla and a peppery note, finishing with a slightly bitter sensation, like lemon pith or peach peel. The finish in medium, with more wood and dried apricot. Strangely enough, I do not get a ton of esters, but in this case, there is so much more to enjoy!“
