This has turned my world upside down. I love it but it’s like no rum I’ve had before. It’s more like something agave. Cheesey, what the hell?!

I keep going back for more but if I was tasting blind I wouldn’t even guess rhum. I’ve never had a white rum I’ve wanted to sip before.

Its appealing to my brain but not my mouth and I’ve never thought of rum as cerebral. It’s kind of delicious. I have no idea how to rate this. I could justify anywhere between 3 and 9. It’s something else completely. It’s amazing.

It smelt terrible... rotten fruit and death. It tastes surprisingly good... grasy, green and the comes the rotten fruit guayaba... like nothing els. Its good but it killed my Daiquiri /Ti Punch - and not in a good way... just killed it.

Clairins are the funky, voodoo-infused cousins of agricoles but Vaval is the young and most reckless one.
Nose reveals a yeast strain reminiscent of lambic beers, restrained rubber and cottonsedge.
Palate with aniseed and citrus, esters and grass notes. Aftertaste is a bit brief after a hefty main act.

This was my first clairin, but compared to Sajous and Casimir it is a bit more clumsy. Great entry level clairin, though.

Clairin is a unique type of rum. Vaval has a fruity nose, salty citrus taste, and a woody finish (not char). Try this stuff, not really for mixing though IMO.

Straight off the bat, this massively divided my friends l. Opinions rated from dont darken my door again to holy shit, what's this! For me it's so.ething you've got to try for yourself. Sure Haiti was devastated by a hurricane but ffs, it's a big ask to spank a bottle of this stuff whithout bracing yourself. Petrol, mud, grass - it's all there and I, for one really got into it. Not a sipping rum by any stretch of the imagination but well worth the effort if only to rule it out from future golfing trips. Best enjoyed with Herbie Hancock, perhaps.

Aroma: Velmi výrazně ovocně/gumové, travnaté, olivy v nálevu, rajčatový protlak
Chuť: Olejnatá, travnatá, velmi nakyslá
Dozvuk: Velmi travnatý, citrusy, citronová kůra, větrovky
Sladkost: 0/3
Ochutnán vzorek; lahev
Při první ochutnávce (Casimir) jsem byl otřesen - taková prasárna. Ale za několik vzorků jsem se Clairiny "propil" a dnes na ně nedám dopustit. 8+/10

Reminds me heavily of Clairin Sajous. I’m not sure I’d buy this one again

Agricole smell with lot of cheese and cream. I tried also WPE and it smells the same. Ok, let´s move on. The taste is rough, very fresh, sweet but strangely unpleasant. The aftertaste is grassy with vanilla, like whole impression of this rum. I didn´t enjoy it. Sorry Haiti.
