“Wow, this is a really nice Clarendon.I got the nose as soon as I opened the sample bottle. Standing on the table resting the flavours just kept developing and they were easy to pick up from the couch.Well balanced, intense and oily on the palate, just love it.”

“for comparison in the other glass the whiskey jury MM 95. The OB comes clearly more over the ester track and citrus. In the WJ, however, tropical fruits such as passion fruit and mango dominate. On the palate, I have a nice mango note in the OB, but it is countered by a rather gruff wood barrel mint bitterness. In contrast, the WJ comes across as much smoother. The final vote has just spoken a fruit fly, which has strayed into the WJ glass with the two rums available for selection 😅”

“A classic Jamaican rum at first, with esters and tropical fruit rising on the nose with a hint of apricot softening the profile. The rum is quite subtle on the palate, especially with notes of fruit and menthol that come to give pep. The finish continues on the mentholated frame with notes of eucalyptus and tea which give freshness and contrast with the power in mouth. A rather greedy and fresh rum in spite of its degree of alcohol.”
