„Works supprsingly well with the low ABV. Clearly noticeable (continental) Clarendon notes. Pleasant and enjoyable.“

„Quite tasty, actually. No ordinary Jamaican, something does not quite fit here. But okay :)“

„Un jeune Clarendon réduit et donc au potentiel limité. Le nez offre quelques fruits tropicaux, de la poire, un soupçon d’esters, de notes boisées, épicées, végétales et florales. Un profil assez mince et doux, qui manque de caractère et de profondeur. La bouche est sur la même trame, ajoutant un soupçon de bois jeune, de muscade et de sucrosité. Il n’y a pas grand chose à dire de plus, si ce n’est que c’est assez fade et que les saveurs semblent un peu déséquilibrées. La dilution donne également un profil légèrement aqueux. La finale persiste étonnamment les fruits tropicaux, les épices, le bois jeune et les esters. S’il ne convaincra pas les puristes, il sera un bon rhum pour introduire les palais sensibles au monde des rhums jamaïcains.“

„Alcohol anything but well integrated. Tastes somehow only after wood polish and nutmeg with apple cider vinegar.... For me, a bitter disappointment.“

„First Monymusk I’ve tried and it’s…fine. Distinctly Jamaican but way less flavor development than Hampden or even the better Appletons. Very light in color. Good and pleasant enough, but just a bit meh. I know Monymusk is generally the pot still arm of Clarendon but nowhere is pot still actually specified on this bottle so I’ll just assume it is, but based on flavor wouldn’t be too surprised if it wasn’t.“

„Greedy nose: well sweetened fruits/some wood/funk. It's really nice, this sweet Jamaican flavor. Integrated mouthfeel: apple-banana that shapes the profile. Then also vanilla and caramel. The finish is nice on roasted nuts. A rum that is both accessible and characteristic of Jamaica. Not easy to be put forward at the end of the lineup with this voltage but I liked it anyway. Again a huge thank you to Dimitri for coming to us with his nice pins. We spent again a nice evening of sharing! I will clearly remember this evening the beautiful selections made by Dram Mor who was completely unknown to me before this evening.“

„I do not know - one of the few rums in which I have so far misled - and where I can clearly understand what is meant by a description such as apple cider vinegar....Even to mix, I prefer when I need nen cheap Jamaican, the 10-money Meyersrum - the here is just hard alcoholic in drinks and brings all sorts of rough edges purely....Today I have a good palate for rum and he goes down amazingly well, on days where it is not so good, he triggers but also sometimes gag reflex .I almost feel a little bad because I'm here so about the rum herziehen, but I'm told the page here, serves to exchange his erhriche opinion and with a bottle of good Doppelkorn I would have had probably unfortunately more fun.dafür is the bottle quite nice.“

„Very nice discovery. Nice Jamaican notes. Nose with complexity and funk. Sweet and round attack, Abv a bit low to my taste, but nice nonetheless. Quite a long finish“
