Insgesamt wirkt der Rum etwas verschlossen, die fruchtige Frische jüngerer Clairins ist durch die Lagerung bereits recht stark verflogen - dafür zeigt sich der Rum etwas dominanter auf der würzigen Seite. Vielleicht käme mit noch längerer Lagerzeit wieder etwas mehr Spannung auf, so wurde dem Rum aber die prägnante Frische genommen, ohne dass die Lagerung schon wirklich positiv durchgeschlagen hat. Holt mich nicht so ganz ab.

Nase: kein klassischer Clarin, das Oloroso Fass hat ihn deutlich abgemildert. Fruchtig ist er, Apfel und Honigmelone mit ein wenig Essig. Dazu etwas vegatibles, vielleicht Artischocke, grün mit etwas, wie Kamille. Gaumen: hui, wirkt sehr süß, Sherry-Süß, daher recht vollmundig. Kirsche, Pflaume und getrocknete, geschwefelte Aprikose. Dazu leicht das Fass und Vanille, vielleicht auch ein Hauch Anis. Am Gaumen übertüncht dass Sherryfss - wie so oft, oder fast immer - den eigentlichen Rum deutlich. Wenn man das mag, ist es durchaus lecker, mir aber immer zu eintönig und austauschbar. So auch hier.

This is a very good Clairin and it will probably devides the waters because it's a bit different from the other releases. I like it a lot actually. The nose is light yet fresh with grass, floral, glue and vanilla as well as some dried fruit. This rum needs to rest before it surrenders all the flavours. The palate is sweet, warm and dry with dried fruit, spices, wood, grass and lovely floral notes. The finish is fresh and medium long with wood, vanilla, dried fruit and lovely floral notes. Should have bought a few bottles when I had the opportunity.

Noch besser als die 1. Version. Schöne Ester und Klebstoff Noten. Toller, komplexer Geschmack der genau in der Mitte zwischen gutem Agricole und Hampden liegt.

Encore une très belle réussite. Floral, fruité tout les marqueurs Clairin sont présent.

Fass und Gewürze dominieren. Für mich ist hier die ganze Sajous DNA verloren :( dennoch ganz lecker aber irgendwie werde ich mir dem nicht warm und ist für mich eher nah an einem normalen gutem Agricole als an einem Clairin sajous.🤷🏼‍♂️

Nussige Noten in Olivenwasser kommen etwas seltsam rüber. Dazu frischer Zuckerrohrsaft auf Holz mit einer priese Zitrusfrüchte.

Dans la lignée du premier avec un peu plus de watts et de tanin. Un bon clairin mais rien d’innovant ni de transcendant.

Je n'ai pas un grand souvenir du premier batch mais celui ci est réussi, on retrouve bien le clairin mais avec de belles notes de rhum vieux

Très bon mais ce côté anisé me dérange légèrement.
