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.
Decided to try this agricole, because it was reasonably priced and I liked the look of the bottle. I paid €24 for it. After smelling it, I almost thought I had bought a bottle of peaty whiskey. Tasting it confirmed my suspicions. I have to say it took some getting used to the taste and I'm not a big fan, but I guess my friend who likes whiskey could enjoy this.
Petite déception pour ce Clement. Trop de parfum de vieux cuir voire de poussière.
Liquorice with just a little bit but required sharpness. Not too sweet and soft aftertaste
I had read great reciews about Clement so I was very excited to find this at my local specialty liquor store. After letting it sit for 30 minutes in a snifter, I took a whiff and honestly couldn't tell this was rum. It smelled more like whiskey/bourbon to me. The taste to me was not much better. There was quite a burn and there was an overwhelming taste of mildew that completely dominated the taste profile for me. It was almost like cork taint, but there's no cork. Just wasn't the best for me, especially for $35. I hope the rest of you have better luck with this one.
Ce Clément select barrel est un rhum agricole classique. Entrée de gamme chez Clément. Personnellement, je le trouve trop sec. Bonne dégustation!
Une douce et agréable sensation envahit le palais. Des notes vanillées viennent enrichir ce rhum qui pourrait avoir été vieilli dans des fûts de bourbon.
