Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
As seen in my other review about Clairin, I'm no fan of this poorly made line of products. Of all the clairins I've tried, this one is the least terrible. That's why it gets a 5.
Quick sample, more intensive tasting notes will come in a week.
Pot still blend of four different small batch farm distillers from Haiti.
Wild fermentation from fresh sugar cane juice and some sugar cane syrup wild fermentated rum also in the mix. 43% abv
Nose: Strong bouquet of different herbal and vinegary funk notes to the nose, brine, sea.
Taste: Herbal aromas just explode in your mouth and lots and lots of vinegary esters, agricole sugar cane juice notes, lots of brine with some fruitiness also in the mix. Bit of heat too.
I will update these notes when i get to sample this again in a week but my impression so far is that this is very unfriendly rum for commercial taste, the very strong vinegar ester notes will probably be too much for many commercial rum drinkers.
Mixability is bit challenging but if you know how to use this rum it will lend itself to very interesting cocktails.
Huge thanks for Luca Garganos team for bringing us these authentic unalturated rums that wouldnt otherwise be on the market.
