How does this rum taste?

This limited-edition Haitian rum intrigues with a harmonious blend of vegetal and "dirty" notes, enriched by a sherry cask's fruity and buttery touch. While some find the spices and perfumed wax overbearing, others relish its complex tropical fruitiness and almond sweetness. A daring experiment, its wild vigor is softened by aging, revealing a short but pleasant finish, sipped with mixed receptions regarding its lingering spice and woodiness.

“A nice surprise! A clairin that takes a completely different turn with this sherry. A nice complexity, roundness, slightly spicy and roasted notes thanks to the sherry. We keep nevertheless this floral side of the clairin with licorice and relatively young fruits. A rather long finish without being interminable. A good value for money in my opinion!”
