“A rum tasted online with Angus MacRaild. The color is quite pale. The nose is marked by aniseed and even fennel - strange! But also phenol. The palate is also marked by anise/fennel, but fruit is immediately present. The finish is long and still marked by the decidedly herbaceous sides of this rather strange rum. The empty glass gives fruit and anise/fennel equal billing.”

“In the approach, the brute aromatics, which the rum on the original strength probably had, is still recognizable - but the targeted reduction to a good 57% results in an exciting alternative to the already existing Clarendon 2007 releases. The aromatics definitely open up new facets and is far from the alcoholic force of the releases with a good ten percent more by volume on the road.”
