Clairin Vaval

The Schtick: “Batch two of Clairin Vaval – a white agricole rum distilled in a continuous Creole still at the Arawaks distillery in the village of Cavaillon, Haiti. Big, bold and showing excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness.”- Specialty Brands

Review #1308 | Rum Review #82

Distiller: Chelo

Bottler: Clairin

Brand: Clairin


ABV: 51.1% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Rich, funky, sweet. Almost a nose loaded with anise. Weird, fruity, melon forward. Some pepper, honey, strawberry and honeydew and anise.

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel. No heat. Anise, sweet confectioners sugar, cracked pepper and honey dew.

Finish: Short, but fun and complex. Cassia, anise, light cedar. Some pepper and confectioners sugar.

Overall: This is WILD but I love it. It’s like an absinthe rum cross, in a way that just works. I bet this makes a screaming cocktail.

Thanks for reading!
