N- Sweetened reed with young banana and exotic duku skin that linger alongside the sourish and fragrant oak pine. Pleasing vanilla, toffee, warm oat and chocolate well boxed in an old cardboard. Retaining the precious rhum notes that just lurking on the nutty base. (88/22)

P- Spice up front, some honey sweetness and balanced. Released for mixing but I would also take this good quality up for pleasant sips. (86/20)

F- Medium-long, feel natural, clean and crisp. Toffee, toasted oak and soft tannin lingers for lasting impression. (87/21)

B/B- 87/21

Wood and grass on the nose. (The grass is very subdued compared to Clement's blancs.) A bit harsh at first—benefits greatly from >15 minutes breathing. This rhum is VERY dry on the palate. Comparisons with whiskey are easy to make. Still, fruity notes can be detected. It's amazing how much a rum can change with so little time in a barrel. (--update 10/26/17)

An interesting bottle; not too young, not too old. Though only slightly aged, it's a perfectly sippable counterpart to sweeter aged rums, and makes a fantastic Ti' Punch. Still, if you're deciding between this and one of Clement's older offerings (and you can spare the extra cash), I'd swing for the latter (or a blanc).

Overall, an excellent introduction to rhum agricole that won't leave you disappointed.

I felt the taste profile on this was kind of like a cross between rum and bourbon. I like it. I feel this truly is a bourbon drinkers rum. Good neat and I can see it being good I some mixed drinks.

My luck is that I like bourbon. It really is an interesting rum that tastes just like a bourbon. It‘s an okay agricole rum. Would drink again but not every day.

Picked this up for something different. First sip was sweet on the front, honey-esk you could say with some clove and orange peel as it finishes. Not a sweet rum. It is lighter in color than I expected. the more you sip it, the more spices you pick up. Not a spicy hot rum, just a perfume like rum. Whomever compared it to a bourbon, that’s a good pick.

For better or worse, this rum tastes very similar to a bourbon. I happen not to be a big fan of bourbon, but if you are, you will like this rum. And like a bourbon, its flavor has the potential to overpower drinks.

Not quite an 8 but definitely better than 6. This is a fine candidate for a standard rum to represent at a soirée. It does display agricole trademarks such as pepper and grass though it's far more neutral than an XO offering.
Think Haagen Dazs Rum Raisin. Quintessential rum sugar flavor with a bit of bite. Smooth and creamy bottled at a pedestrian 40%. If your planning an upscale shindig and buying only one rum, consider this. Looking for something substantial, spend a little more, your not far from finer sippers.

Different from most rums I've had. Almost a nutty and creamy flavor compared to others that typically are more sweet. Excellent finish.
