With flavours this strong, I guess there can be a fine line between the sublime and the repellent.
Only had a single shot, and didn't get to pop it in a mojito, so I can't truly compare to Communal or Rocher. Both of those, I wouldn't choose to drink neat but make amazing mojitos.
This though. Wow. Intense grass and fermented funk of death. The smell and taste seem to linger in my throat, and in the room, and not in a good way.
Good to learn that I might not like all agricoles. Will tread a little more carefully now
On the nose: yogurt, mild smokiness, and brine. On the palate: almost peaty, some burnt sugar, celery/fennel, fruit and briny vegetal notes. Long finish.
All I have to say is yummmm. I love every single Clairin so much.
I really wanted to not like this, and be all righteous about ‘super-premium’ rums, and how ridiculous it is paying that sort of price for booze, but Jesus H. Christ this was amazing.
I just don’t know what to think about this one. It’s like no other rum I’ve had before. The vegetal notes are very prominent, almost tastes like an alcoholic tomato soup with lots of fresh herbs. It’s nuts.
There's definitely a surplus of heads products, such as ethyl acetate and acetone which gives it a very heady character. It's quite light on the palate, however, with whispers of cane and olive brine. It's somewhat intense and "unrefined", which isn't always a bad thing though I wish the heads was a little more restrained. It's unique and very worth having on the shelf - I'd put it in the same league as Cachaca.
I have a lot of respect for the serious distillers of Haiti as the country is very poor and has been mostly alienated by the rest of the world following the revolution. Its a good rum, and all the knowledge and technique involved in its production likely developed from time and experience on account of the distillers, without access to modern research. I hope most of the profit makes it back to Haiti.
Michel Sajous cultive une petite parcelle (30ha) sur l'île d'Haïti.
Son agriculture est vertueuse puisqu'elle respecte une approche biologique. La canne cultivée, la Cristalline est propre à l'île et doit sa notoriété à sa grande richesse aromatique. Nous sommes donc en présence d'un "rhum bio" monovariétal
C’est à partir du pur jus de canne, (sans filtration), que nous est proposé cet excellent Clairin.
Nez: la canne à sucre explose et laisse ensuite une jolie place aux notes mentholées qui lui donnent son identité et son caractère.
Bouche: généreuse et délicate empreinte d'une grande fraîcheur associant menthol et notes florales puissantes. Finale: les notes florales persistent et laissent une saveur divinement rafraîchissante
Became one of my favorites!
Best agricole I've ever had. In Haiti they want to make this an idividual category rather than "just" agricole rhum.
Such good quality funk. A strong nose of cane, banana, and moss. Palate is not as smooth and a little hot. To me, that’s not a bad thing.
