Un grande rum! Si sente la forza iniziale dell'alcol, ma i profumi che dopo poco arrivano sono ben marcati e non occorre annusare il bicchiere per troppo tempo. Un rum deciso e alla vecchia maniera. Al gusto, oltre ad una componente fruttata e vegetale (dove spiccano le olive), risalta questo retrogusto di solventi / esteri mai sgradevole. Finale lunghissimo dove a turnazione si sentono tutti i gusti precedentemente avvertiti. Predomina sul finale un sentore di torba/fumoso sempre accompagnato da solventi/esteri. Unico! Velier ha fatto centro! Lunga vita a Velier!

Was für ein Rum. Wahnsinn! Und im Cocktail überzeugt er auch noch. Ganz großes Kino.

Sehr schöner Rum, zugänglicher als andere Clairins. Granate im Daiquiri und auch lecker als Ti Punch

Pure... Not so much, but shines in a Daiquiri it seems.

I haven't had a lot of time to add reviews lately and now I'm really far behind. This Clairin is one of the best ones I've had so far! The nose basically explodes as soon as you pour the glass. Fruits, herbs, grass and sugarcane are there pretty much instantly closely followed by spices. The palate is warm and fruity with cinnamon, grass, herbs and sugarcane followed by light licorice. The finish is medium to long with herbs, grass, apples and cinnamon. Price to quality is very good.

Un superbe Clairin, très expressif.

Hervorragender Clairin, grasig-floral mit ausgeprägtem Aroma von Zuckerrohr. Komplex und erstaunlich leicht.

The nose is strong and reminds me of other Haitian rums I've tried. It's fixating, with notes of sugarcane, olive and a vinegary pickle. The palate is more vegetal than the nose and has a good amount of spice mixing with olive and some engine oil. Very dark and bitter finish but I like it. There's smoky, nutty notes lingering with tar and sometimes like iodine. This is only my second Haitian rum but I starting to think it might be something to explore after this. Very good stuff.

Plus brut que certains clairins et nettement plus épicé, il a un profil bien marqué

seltsam... der batch mit 55,9% ist deutlich besser meiner Meinung nach und vor allem fruchtiger und harmonischer. hier ist es schon fast verbrannt, etwas medizinisch, jodig und salzig, dazu Essig und Teer. trifft leider nicht ganz meinen Geschmack... der mit 55,9% ist dagegen ein Traum!

The funk is for real in this one. It might not be for everyone, but it is for me. The smell is fantastic; it reminds me guarapo juice with lime (sugarcane juice), for newcomers will suggest either lowering down the alcohol with water when trying neat. Mix with whatever you like, Coconut water or lime juice.

Un rum decisamente atipico ma non per questo meno interessante. Non delude degustato liscio..da provare in formato “Ti’ Punch”
