Clairin bello sporco come il Vaval e Le Rocher. Questi rum bianchi li adoro e ci sento il sapore del vero rum senza troppi ritocchi proprio come ai tempi dei pirati. Certo non sono raffinati ne facili, ma sono autentici!

This is another good Clairin that I can recommend if you like Clairin. Price to quality is very good. The nose is fresh and sweet with strawberries, grass and a light mineral note. The palate is oily and fruity with salty licorice, sugarcane as well ans light notes of tobacco, mineral and smoke. The finish is long with smoky wood, salty licorice and a hint of tobacco.

sagt mir leider nicht so wirklich zu. an der Nase erstmal Gurke und Klebstoff, dazu etwas Himbeeren und Lakritz?! erstmal gut aber geschmacklich dann leider so gar nicht meins... eher eine alte Gurke, und bittere, alte Minze, leichte zitrusnoten, Lakritz, viel Säure, etwas salzig und insgesamt viel zu Essig-lastig und mir zu sauer und zu vergoren und modrig. aber dennoch eine spannende weitere, wiederum komplett andere Stilistik als die anderen 5 clairins und daher eine spannende Erweiterung! Im daiquiri geht das ganze dann geschmacklos in Richtung Himbeersorbet mit Essiggurkenwasser, auf ne perverse Art geil aber da muss man echt Bock drauf haben 🤣

Schmeckt ein bisschen wie ein Mix aus Sajous und Vaval. Hat uns ebenso sehr gut gefallen. Sehr gefällig zu trinken!

Good, but best for Cocktails, too raw when pure. Update: really enjoyable neat after having a Hampden C<>H and a bit of Oxidation.

Der Sanson hat an der Nase eine ausgeprägte Wurzel-Pilz-Vinegar Note. Am Gaumen Erde und Kartoffeln. Der Communal und der Sajous gefallen mir besser, da sie mehr Frische mitbringen.

Nase: sauer eingelegtes Gemüse Gaumen: relativ fruchtig und gefällig, aber auch irgendwie leicht und gleichförmig, nicht so überraschend wie die Nase; Der Clairin Casimir aus demselben Jahr (RX11461) sagt mir eindeutig mehr zu.

Valeur sûre clairin.. Ce côté iodé et sauvage est vraiment bien fait

Je préfère le nez à la bouche. Le laisser un peu reposer avant de le déguster.

The nose is a cracker, all strawberries, and overripe mango. The mouth is olive brine and salty with earthy and vegetal elements and less of the fruit than the nose would suggest. Medium long finish which is again salty and savoury. It’s better for me than sajous but a different barrel of fish and still hard to place in terms of quality. Based on the nose I was excited but doesn’t quite deliver, the savoury salty mouth and finish is certainly unusual
