RX9140 Good Clairin Under 100€

Clairin Ansyen Vaval (The Nectar) from Arawaks distillery in Haiti, selected by Velier, stands out with its unique and vibrant profile. Distilled from sugar cane juice and aged 1 year 9 months, this 48.6% ABV rum offers an enticing nose with notes of citrus, banana, floral, medicinal, and a hint of glue. On the palate, expect a delightful mix of spice, floral, honey, medicinal, and vegetal flavors. The rum's herbaceous, menthol, and olive undertones add complexity and a touch of earthiness. Its intriguing finish features a subtle banana note. Ideal for those seeking a rum that blends agricultural charm and Jamaican-style explosiveness without overpowering Caroni cask influence. Perfect for unique tasting experiences.

“Sehr leicht. Caroni Fass quasi nicht zu erkennen. Nur ganz hinten raus im Abgang etwas verbranntes Teeriges zu erahnen.”

“Ein schön würziger Clairin, dem man das Caroni-Finish nicht wirklich anmerkt.”

“Le nez est très porté sur la canne à sucre vu qu’il s’agit d’un jeune vieux ou d’un vieux jeune (comme vous voulez). Mais ce qui marque le plus est le profil herbacé. Par la suite, on retrouve de la fraise, de la vanille, de l’olive … c’est assez rock and roll ! Ce nez est attirant et plutôt prometteur … En bouche c’est épicée et à nouveau herbacée-mentholée. L’olive est très présente ! La finale est plutôt longe sur la banane. C’est un mélange de gourmandise agricole et d’explosivité jamaïcaine. Mais sans réellement choisir son côté. Du coup, on est entre deux eaux. Et comparativement au Providence 2019, l’impact du fût Ex-Caroni est très peu présent et n’apporte pas de réel intérêt. Le profil concentré et atypique est sympa à avoir dans son bar même si on est pas sur un truc de dingue, loin de là. Cela peut servir de point de comparaison pour de futures dégustations haïtienne, car je pense que nous allons continuer d’être envahi de Clairin. Encore merci Rumstylez pour ce partage de bouteilles nous ayant permis de continuer l’apprentissage de cette destination. Et l’ami Bernard, adorant ce jus, à eu la chance de repartir avec les quelques derniers cl de la bouteille … On se donne RDV en avril pour notre dégustation Rum Artesanal ?”
