This was just a wild guess, but it is certainly an interesting rum/rhum and has made me want to try the older bottlings. Now I'm busy printing photos off the website to send with my next rum/rhum mule to Haiti.

Default Haiti in 3 weeks

I'll be over in Haiti in February so I'll be able to all the run down the Rhum Berling. I'll be hanging out with Herbert Labbe at his distillery and learning about the Haitian rhum culture.

Be CAREFUL, I'm serious. All my staff are Haitian, and there is a reason they are all here!!

Default Be Careful

Cheers, I will be very careful, as I always am when traveling abroad. I never any situation for granted, especially in a country that has a serious representation. but then so does my home island of Jamaica.

I have printed off some photos from the website for my employees to try and pick up a bottle when they go back to Haiti next. Then there is the other rhum that has been shown here, Janes? I have some old photos from my trip to Haiti in 1990 that I will I will put on my website when I start a Haitian rhum page in the near future. In the meantime I'm practicing drinking rum for my trip to San Juan and testing my Spanish on the local Dominican barmaids!!!

Now that's a great reason to practice Spanish. San Juan is great. Bacardi's Process Manager, Jose Gomez, really looked after me while I was there. I should be in Dominican Rep as well later on this year with Brugal. I need to brush up on my Spanish too!

Unfortunately after patiently waiting for one of my staff to come back from his recent trip to Haiti, he only bought me back an old plastic juice/milk bottle full of Clarin (Haitian moonshine). He said the Berling was thousands of Gourdes (?) which translated to about US$60. Next time I guess I will have to send the money with the mule!
The moonshine is sitting on my desk, very raw alcohol smells, no aging, straight from the still. It reminds me of the moonshine I saw being made in St.Kitts last year, slightly rawer, as I presume it is made from cane juice. The locals here call it "Monkey Bag".
Fair play to my employee, he always brings me back a bottle of some description!!!

That's too bad - or perhaps not. Maybe you enjoy moonshine? I've got about one more drink in my bottle of the gold label, and I was going to get Mr. lperry to try it for tasting notes. He drinks single malt and bourbon quite a bit, and this rum reminds me more of whisky than other rums I've tried.
