Great balance of fruitiness and (tropical) wood influence with some rubber and glue associations. Excellent aroma!Intense, complex and pleasantly bitter on the palate. Wow, this one is really fun!Excellent Jamaican at a very fair issue price!

Excellent. The old tropical clarendon which is of a very high level. The nose is top, nice balance between very ripe fruits, almond and a hint of rubber that tends to fade with aeration. On the palate, the 68° stings a bit and tends to make less room for the other aromas. I liked it better with a little bit of water. The profile is pretty much in line with the nose I think. We are here at a very high level, for a hundred euros for 35cl, the kind of bottling to take if you like these old tropical clarendons. Let's salute here the bottler because the format is a great idea and makes the product affordable and more available. Good for them.

Tasting compared with Colours of Rum Clarendon N°2.This is more fruity in comparison and has more Jamaica funk, again I have the association with Long Pond. Palate: less bitter and more fruity, the high alcohol content is very well integrated. Overall very balanced, a little funkyness and glue is also present and is well rounded by the tannins.In the aftertaste it becomes a little bitter but the fruitiness is not lost. This rum is in direct comparison less bitter, fruitier and does not have as much alcoholic sharpness. The origin from Jamaica is more noticeable. I like excellent and a tad better than the Colours of Rum Clarendon N°2.For me, the best Clarendon from the 90s so far.

Wow. What a bottling. Hot contender for bottling of the year. Tested against the RumSponge Clarendon 1997 and the Fine Drams is a bit wilder. Actually, both are equally good for me, but the price of the Fine Drams gives it an extra point. Absolute board. It's amazing that you can still buy it. Right off into May Tai with it.92/100

Really cool. Complex and intense. Only in the nose stings the alcohol first slightly. On the palate, however, a blast.

Super complex! Unlike the EMB95 not so much menthol, more wood. Great!

That's it, my dear begnoni has a twin in fact, they are the same juices so no need to make tons, only in the attack the begnoni is more astringent, which gives an impression of freshness and adds a step by contribution to the fine dram but they are the same, the.velier is a little more acidic in the nose, but the important thing in these old Jamaican is the harmony woody / fruit that gives it an endless finish, it's well done, it's good, gods of Jamaica !!!!
