Questo Clairin di Velier è incredibilmente forte con forti profumi di torba/affumicatura e solventi. Leggera presenza di olive.Rispetto al Sajous gli mancano maggiori note fruttate. Gran rum! I Rum Clairin sono veri rum che non si sono alterati nel tempo e mantengono quei processi di fermentazione e distillazione di un tempo. Sono tra i pochi rum rimasti a darci una memoria storica di come fosse questo grande distillato. Sono il nostro passatto e al contempo il nostro futuro!

Le Rocher is probably my favorite of all the Velier clairins, and is definitely the most distinct. It’s pungent and wild, with a herbal/earthy quality reminiscent of Mezcal and a grassy brightness that mingles with some vegetal, plastic-y, and overripe fruit notes. It really demands your attention when sipped, makes some fantastic cocktails, all while sitting on the shelf at a remarkably affordable price.

Le nez est assez prometteur car très lourd et animal. Il est à la fois fumé et herbacé. Il est très frais et on y retrouve en arrière-plan des traces de mezcal ! C’est un profil aromatique très expressif-funky et propre à Haïti. Le Dunder a bien fait son travail ... L’attaque en bouche est légèrement acidulée avec des notes de citron-citron vert. L’alcool est parfaitement intégré et il se déguste aisément. La bouche est crémeuse et est florale sur le muguet. Mais rapidement le fumé prend son ampleur et sa place. Une finale longue et terreuse typique d'Haïti conclue cette dégustation.

Totally unexpected and unpredictable. I literally fall in love, as it clearly demonstrates how different a rum can be. A must-try for all rum lovers
