„Nose akin to other 2007s with tropical fruits, green apples adding menthol with some time in the glas. Very nice. Very distinct MM on the palate as well. I do miss some complexity, however. Nose was more promising than the delivery you get from sipping. All in all a very solid bottling, but not top of the range MM(W) in my book.“

„Würzig Fruchtig ohne großen wiedererkennungswert .... nicht schlecht aber nix besonderes... Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein.“

„The nose is decent but has an almost chemical orange odour that made me fear the worst. The mouth is overpowered by this orange flavour, almost chemical which reminds me a little of Don Papa. On top of that the alcohol is very badly integrated. I was really expecting more from this 😬“

„Nach zwei Clarendons des selben Jahrgangs am Wochenende dachte ich, ich mache dieses Sample auf solange die Erinnerung für einen Vergleich frisch genug ist. Nase und Gaumen typisch 2007 Clarendon mit Apfelnoten. Nach einer Weile kommt eine schöne Gebäck- und Karamellnote hinzu. Nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht herausragend.“

„Great clarendon. Jamaican fruit and funk with the vegetal and farmy frame of clarendon. A very very nice selection. We can regret the price which is rather high but well, the Brexit also passed by...“

„Die Nase ist sehr schön fruchtig, frisch mit einem Hauch Vanille, am Gaumen dann die klassischen würzigen Holzaromen, umgeben von Menthol, Piment und Lakritz, der Abbang ist mittellang und eher auf der bitteren Seite. Es ist ein guter Clarendon, aber eine Flasche würde ich mir nicht davon holen“

„Impressive profile, reminiscent of the 1995 EMBs - but here in a slightly more youthful guise. Plenty of fresh fruit, menthol, herbal notes of tea, subtle sweetness. Very good.“

„First impression: a bit an oily/fatty structure with some soapiness (koriander?) in the profile. Not yet sure if it’s really my kind of Clarendon.“

Profile picture of user

„Solid Clarendon with all ingredients of a great Jamaican. Punchy abv, that is well enough integrated to carry lots of fruits and estery notes. Not overly complex but solid rum.“

„Für mich leider die Enttäuschung des Abends. Die Nase lädt noch mit fruchtig würzigen Noten ein, am Gaumen dann für mich einfach nur beißend alkoholisch, auch nach über einer Std. im Glas. Habe mir hier deutlich mehr erhofft.“
