Clairin Casimir from the village of Barraderes uses a heirloom variety of sugar cane called "Hawaii". Harvested in 2016, the fresh cane juice was distilled at the Faubert Casimir distillery before being bottled at natural strength.

Tasting note:[2016 vintage tasted] Clear. Some fusel / varnish notes before the bouquet evolves an appealing grassy, caney aspect. Brief exposure evokes powerful scents of fruit cake / brine becoming more fresh and grassy after 3-4 minutes in the glass. Full bodied, but nicely poised with off-dry flavours suggesting dill pickle countered by waxy, yeasty notes. Hints of rubber, then gingery warmth and grassy freshness through the aftertaste. Complex, vibrant and delicious white rum. 48.3% Alc./Vol.
