Che dire di questo mix..mi ha stupito! Si sente molto la parte vegetale del vaval e ci sono i sentori “sporchi” caratteristici del casimir uniti dalla botte di sherry che gli regala una bella nota fruttata e burrosa! Un esperimento davvero riuscito!

Une belle surprise ! Un clairin qui prend une toute autre tournure avec ce sherry. Une belle complexité, de la rondeur, des notes légèrement épicées et torréfiées grâce au sherry. On garde néanmoins ce côté floral du clairin avec la réglisse et les fruits relativement jeunes. Une finale plutôt longue sans être interminable. Un bon rapport qualité prix à mon avis !

Wow, das Sherry-Finish gefällt mir hier richtig gut. Die Frische der Clairins findet einen wunderbar austarierten Gegenpart in den schweren und süssen Fruchtnoten aus dem Sherry-Fass. Gelungene Abfüllung!

Kamillentee trifft auf grünen Apfel und dazu gibt es Früchtebrot. Pflanzliche Teenoten bleiben im Geschmack erhalten, serviert auf einem Eichenbrett. Dazu noch mehr Früchtebrot und getrocknete Aprikose. Im Abgang kommt eine Honignote dazu. Sehr interessanter Rum.

Pas mal au nez. Gourmand derrière une trame végétale très présente. En bouche par contre je suis assez déçu. Il y a des épices à bouillon de cuisine qui sont vraiment trop présents et pas super agréables. J'ai pas accroché avec ce rhum.

Das ist leider so gar nicht meins… ich rieche und schmecke hier ein Parfüm/Wachs-Note, die mich absolut stört! Schade!

Interessant - aber mir persönlich zu viele Gewürznoten nach Anis und insbesondere Lakritz.

Pas forcément mauvais mais pas à mon goût. J'ai préféré le nez. Les clairins vieux ont pour l'instant du mal à me convaincre.

Ce vieux clairin n’a pas tout perdu de ses marqueurs qui s’équilibrent avec la rondeur du sherry, la finale est trop courte mais cela reste un vrai bon produit.

Bel équilibre sur ce vieux Clairins, plutôt sympathique

Beaucoup plus de douceur pour celui ci vs le vieux Sajous mais il est aussi plus gourmand. Longueur en bouche très courte cependant. Agréable à boire

Nez très gourmand sur les fruits tropicaux, la pâte d'amande, le vin cuit et la vanille. Letout sublimé par quelques notes de colle et un léger menthol après ouverture. En bouche on garde les mêmes notes mais plus épicé avec l'arrivée de la cardamome. On sent également le boisé. Finale sur les epices le bois et après quelques minutes de la réglisse. Très bon clairin bien adoucit par le fût olorosso.
