Description

 

Thompson Brothers also bottled rum! How much of its distillate does Clarendon ship off to Diageo? Approximately 90 percent of it, we’re told. Diageo takes the new-make spirit from Clarendon and ages it at their own facilities. Not all of Diageo’s take from Clarendon goes into Captain Morgan, though. Diageo has another little brand you may have heard of–Myers, anybody? As for the remaining ten percent of Clarendon’s distillate, some becomes Monymusk Plantation rum, the house brand of NRJ. The remaining is sold in bulk to Jamaican brands like Port Royal and Smatt’s. Clarendon is essentially two independent distilleries in one.   Just 262 bottles were released and bottled at 53.5% ABV.

On the nose is heaps of ripe banana, supported by fudge and waxy green apple. On the palate is  pineapple and fried banana, with notes of liquorice and rich, dark treacle.
