Summary

The Clairin Ansyen Sajous (Bielle Cask) is a rum produced in Haiti at the Chelo distillery. It was distilled in 2017 from sugar cane juice with a pot still and then aged for 3 years 1mo. It has an ABV of 54,6%. Reviews are positive, with ratings ranging from 72-87/100. It is described as "very smooth and round" but lacking the typical Sajous character and funk. On the nose there are notes of sugar cane, Jamaican funk, Lapsang tea, and raisins in rum. On the palate there is wood, banana, and raisins in rum reminiscent of Jamaica that become more complex over time with oxidation. The Bielle cask comes through well but covers up the typical Clairin note.

Difficile à trouver, je voulais cette bouteille exactement car j’ai déjà été déçu par des haïtiens de Velier. Un nez pâtissier avec de la canne à sucre et du funky (ex fût de rhum jamaïcain?). Du thé Lapsang, raisins au rhum. En bouche on retrouve le funky avec du boisé, de la banane et des raisins au rhum ce qui fait encore penser à la Jamaïque. Très déçevant et volatile à l’ouverture, il s’est assagi et complexifié avec de l’oxydation et du temps. Une très bonne idée l’élevage en fût de rhum. Meilleur que des Sajous plus jeunes et plus intéressant qu’un clairin plus âgé.

Interessanter Clairin. Das Bielle Fass kommt gut durch, jedoch wird dadurch die typische Clairin-Note eher überdeckt.

Absolut gelungen. Eher süß und mild.

sehr süffig und rund! aber leider geht der typische sajous Charakter und Funk größtenteils verloren.
