Kommt nicht ganz an die Schwesterabfüllung mit 50,1% heran, da der zusätzliche Alkoholgehalt im Direktvergleich zu Lasten der Ausgewogenheit wirkt.

I am a fan of all unaged Clairins and this is my first aged expression. So nothing to compare to. But i am – unlike other reviewers – not disappointed. Yes, in the smell is not much clairin left and the oloroso cask clearly takes the center spot. But this is ok for me. I also really enjoyed the taste where there is enough sajous left and works really nicely together with cherry, black cassis and dried plum as well as sherry. Really loved this. Got 2 bottles. Update: i am correcting this score down by a point due to more tasting experiences but also after a new side by side tasting with the other release aged in whisky and rum casks catching up in my mind.

This one was hidden on a top shelf and I was the first one asking for it at the Tiki bar in question. The nose is fruity with sugarcane, nuts and vanilla trailed by grass. The palate is also fruity with lots of cane, wood and spices trailed by grass and tea and a hint of sherry. The finish is long and woody with sugarcane, grass, tea and dried fruits.

Have 2 samples of this, so there will be 2 sessions. First impression: the smell immediately filled the room, one could recognize the Clairin, but in a muted intensity I have yet to find the Sherry component. The taste is quite hot and burning, but not unpleasant.

Das Oloroso Fass hat ganze Arbeit geleistet, aber ich find sowohl an der Nase als auch am Gaumen kommt der Clairin klar durch, wobei die Nase insgesamt mehr vom Sherry Fass hat. Insgesamt ein guter bis sehr guter Rum. Ich mag aber sowohl „sherry bombs“ als auch das unaged Clairin Profil, aber beides sind nicht meine Favoriten, weder alleine noch in Kombination. Ganz besonders positiv find ich die Alkoholintegration und die Einzigartigkeit.

Vielen Dank Speed Flo für diese Überraschung. Auch wenn es normalerweise nicht meine Welt ist, war das ein schöner Abstecher

Schöner, gut gemachter Rum, der gekonnt mit der jungen Frische der Clairins und einer Lagerung im Sherry Cask spielt.

It feels a little bit unusual for me to taste and give impressions on a rum that hasn’t yet been reviewed here on RumX..I’ll definitely come back a second time and adjust my thoughts, but here’s my first, quick, review. The nose has gotten the biggest influence from the ex-Oloroso casks, with red fruits (I get bitter cherries upfront, possibly figs), and a sweeter sugary note, almost like honey but not so strong. Then, the true Clairin essence starts to coming through, with grassy flavors, raw cane, a fainted hint of green olives. What was a lime peel note i used to get from the unaged Sajous, now seems to me more like chamomile. The palate is an whole other story: the fierce soul of Haiti is still there (sugarcane, grass, lime peel) maybe a little bit softened by those red cherries.

das Sherry-Fass (Oloroso) ist sehr dominant, fast etwas zu viel, da es die typischen frischen Clairin-Noten doch ziemlich unterdrückt. An der Nase habe ich rote Früchte (insb. Sauerkirsche), Feige, gebrannten Zucker, süssliche Back-Gewürze und Olive. Am Gaumen Gewürznelke, Tee, Kirsche. Im Abgang Gewürze und pflanzliche Noten.

Der eigentliche Geruch des ungelagerten Sajous wird beinah komplett vom Sherry überlagert. Die floralen, pflanzlichen Noten sind sehr in den Hintergrund gerückt. Die säuerlichen Note ist von den ursprünglichen noch am greifbarsten. Geschmacklich ist vom eigentlichen Sajous noch etwas mehr vorhanden, ergänzt durch Gewürze, Holz und Frucht vom Sherry. Im Abgang dann Lakritze und Heu. Alkohol ist etwas gezähmt, könnte dennoch etwas besser eingebunden sein. Gefällt mir ganz gut, jedoch nicht ganz auf dem Level des 22 Monate Clairins aus dem Mount Gay Fass.

This is so unlike any of its relatives. And honestly a bit disappointing. It is by no means bad. But it tastes more akin to a sweet Panama rum than to anything clairin. I am sure it will have it fans but I am not one of them...

Wirklich anders als die Version ohne Sherry Lagerung. Dabei ist anders nicht wertend gemeint. Beide gehen toll Hand in Hand nebeneinander einher. Schöner interessanter Clairin.
