Similar delicious profile compared to it's single distillery brothers. Just bit more sweeter, somehow flatter ( - 1 point), but still rich aroma and taste. Absolutely smooth, oily on palate. Warm long aftertaste.
Minus second point due to lack of fine art box )
Funky and sweeter than most clairin I've had, it's not without the brine and olive I associate with the spirit, but it's a little less interesting... But maybe more accessible. If you already love clairin like me, don't go out of your way for this, but give it a try if you're new to the style!
The Clairin Communal is a rhum from Haiti 🇭🇹 and is a blend of clairins from four different producers, namely: Sajous, Vaval, Casimir and Le Rocher. It's bottled at 43%ABV and is geared a bit more for mixing (say a classic daiquiri), but here I'm going to try it straight.
On the nose there is cane, lime, plantain, ginger, slight tomato-paste, mild olive brine, and flowers.
The palate is cream and cane syrup, and the finish is pepper, mint, cream, and ginger.
If I had to compare this to another Clairin, I think it's closest to a toned-down version of the Sajous. It's highly sessionable, easy to drink, and perhaps a good intro to clairin. I think it's a nice rhum on its own, and I can report it also works well in a daiquiri.
Agricole rumy se obecně těžko hodnotí,díky svoji specificnosti. Comunnal clairin je výborný exemplář, teoretický pitelny samostatně(pro zajimavost)ideální do drinků (daiquiri...). Rozhodně stojí za zkoušku.
If you want to make an epic Daiquiri use this stuff. Nough said. Gonna try it for other cocktails later. Bit expensive for the mix (in my country) but sometimes you gotta impress the lady, and thoroughly enjoy one yourself.
Dry, grassy, almost savoury. You could drink it neat although I wouldn't choose to.
Instead, make unusual and amazing mojitos.
Having now also tried Sajous, I can taste that in here, but whereas in there, it overwhelms with it's intensity, here it's all well balanced.
If you want to shake up your cocktails, try this for size!
