„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.“

„Very nice Jamaican: Dominant fruit paired with some wood, spice and a hint of tea. Despite the age not too tart, instead balanced with wonderful freshness.“

„Very Jamaican nose. Full of esters, very ripe fruits. In the mouth, it is discreetly woody, strong, funky, fruity and surprisingly minty. And surprisingly minty, a sensation that remains very present at the end of the mouth. Surprising and very pleasant. We come back to it with great pleasure.“

„Clearly more esters than the 95 EMB. The alcohol is still a bit brute here and could be a bit better integrated. Either way, however, tasty stuff.“

„Au nez : violette et colle sur un lit de bois et fruit rouge confits. Très aguicheur Bouche : entrée très agréable sur la fraîcheur des fruits et de la violette. Elle s'assombrit et se salit au fur et à mesure avec de la colle et des hydrocarbures. Finale : on retrouve se bain de bois et de fruits rouges et pas mal de tanin ; grosse impression de noyau de cerises 84“

„Superbe j’adore. Très bon clarendon comme d’habitude quand ça vient de cette distillerie 😍 Le nez est fantastique, et une belle explosion en bouche 😍par contre la longueur est moyenne /longue D’où la note un peu réduite.“

„Encore une bonne pioche de chez Old Brothers. Le nez est très enveloppant : le rhum sort du verre pour remplir tout l'espace ! On est sur la colle à bois avec quelques esters. Belle attaque en bouche, très vive. J'ai l'impression de l'acidité des fruits exotiques avec la rondeur des fruits des bois type baies sauvages. Grande finale.“
