This is a rum that will separate waters as an either you like it or not. Right out of the bottle it can be pungent to some, but after resting for a while it becomes more gentle and light. Fruity with medicinal notes are there from nose to finish. There is also oak and spice in the mix. Price to quality can be discussed all the way to the bank :-)

Une fois passé le côté solvanté dont je ne suis pas fan, superbe rhum, complexe, gourmand et long en bouche.

Hmm... I like it, maybe it’s time to look into more of those Clairins.

Le nez est très alcooleux dans un 1er temps, il a besoin d’aération ! Une fois ouvert, il est très gourmand et pâtissier sur la vanille. On retrouve des agrumes et un léger boisé. Le tout enrobé de quelques notes médicinales qui rend ce nez attirant et plutôt prometteur … C’est jeune avec un bel équilibre. En bouche c’est épicée et solvanté. C’est gourmand et pâtissier comme le laissé présager le nez. On retrouve également un côté beurré. La finale est plutôt agréable sur le boisé et la vanille. C’est un mélange de gourmandise agricole et de rébellion jamaïcaine. C’est classique mais bon.

Le profil des clairins blancs ne se retrouve que peu mais les notes épicées, de fruits très murs et une note légèrement soufrée me plaît.
