Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Souvenirs souvenirs sipping ti punchs until mornings. With the right note of sugar it is a killer, right balance of force, fruits and spices. Better a bit cold.
Rhum blanc intermédiaire entre les premiers prix (old Nick, Saint James) et les plus "haute gamme" (damoiseau, trois rivières). Toujours bon à en avoir un comme ça dans sont bar perso ;-)
Well, sipping it neat is not my cup of tea. Reminds me of some local distilled spirit from grape pomace (each country in europe names it differently and depends on grape varieties, think grappa as the most known), grassy, just with an additional hint of fruit. Not what i expected.
However, add a small dose of it in a daiquiri or another typical rum cocktail and you ll see how much more complex it becomes. Not quite familiarized with rhum agricoles so rating could be off a bit.
The first sip was quite shocking. It's not a rum. It tastes more like grappa or some kind of home-brew alcohol (which I like). The further the better. Despite it is a white non aged rum is has it's complexity. It's fuity, a little bit harsh but with some hogo flavoures. Some yeast aromas dancing in mouth as well. Dry. A very good sipper for me. I will buy again.
This might be your go-to for ti'punch in the US, as I've been able to find it at Total Wine and a few other big retailers for years, from the east to west coasts and between. That's a plus for those of us looking to replicate this no BS, iceless cocktail wherever we find ourselves. The flavors are very standard AOC Martinique rhum agricole, so I won't tread that path for the sake of experienced tasters here. For those who are unfamiliar: a big nose of grassy, citrusy high notes, some mint oil on the finish and vegetal aromas similar to coconut, grapefruit and lime pith.
The value isn't what New Yorkers get with HSE blanc, which has a price point almost $12 less than this Clement blanc, and at 40º, you're getting cheated out of a real ti'punch, which should be 50º, but in terms of versatility and availability, this is a fine acquisition for those curious about the style, stocking an agricole for their bar or just plain feeling punchy in the desert (or coast, for that matter).
This is an excellent rhum agricole to use in a ti punch or in other rum based cocktails. I would not recommend it as a sipper. Best to stick with the aged rums for sipping. This was purpose built for ti punches.
Lot's of alcohol in the nose but quite smooth on the palate. Not my cup of tea to drink neat. Dry and grassy, vegital. Some 'funk' apparently from fermentation. I want to try it in a Ti Punch. Should be good with the cane syrup and lime. Admittedly not really my taste in rum but I gave it a try. I can see some good cocktails coming from it's use but it would have to be wanting of the unique flavor of the rum. I think this may be an acquired taste. Definitely not bad, just not my style.
Rhum blanc basic sans erreur mais sans plus. D'autres sont plus travaillés
Un rhum pour les ti-punch, planteur et autres cocktails.
Solid base for a punch or mix, but prefer HSE, Dillon or Neisson over it.
Still a very good rhum compared to the molasses world.
Not bad! Parfait pour les ti punch. Rafraîchissant!
Add 3 points to the score if you like Rhum Agricole's. I don't fancy the Clement Blanc Rhum at all since it is way too dry for my taste. It is a very flavorful white Rhum Agricole in general terms, but not my cup of tea. Quite a burn at the end. Mix it with your favorite soda.
While I almost always drink my rum neat, I do have some cocktails, that I enjoy from time to time. One of them is the classic Ti Punch. That drink requires agricole rum, and this is the best one for the job.
Nose: Citrus peel, sugar cane and raw flowers
Taste: Raw, fruity and a little funky taste. A little lime and citrus in the finish
Overall: You can easily drink this one as a sipper, but it really unfolds with sugarcane syrup, lime juice and ice cubes
Terrible, one of the worst white rums I've ever had.
Goede blanc argricole met die typische "funk" van Martinique. Prima rhum om een Ti'Punch mee te maken.
Floral aroma with yeast. A bit of black pepper and alcohol. Very similar to grape distillates.
Burning in the mouth does not recognize the really complex flavor. A short citrus aftertaste.
It needs a hot meal. Quickly fatigue sets in. Morning will not be easy.
There is no other flaws. Someday I could have to repeat it to solve this taste.
Fresh, grassy but dry and a bit harsh. Not great for sipping.
Ce rhum est directement associé au ti punch , pour preuve le concours de Ti'punch organisé par le rhum Clément
This one is excellent rum for Ti punch. Strong floral aroma with tones of sugar cane. Taste full of plums with hints of lime.
Together with lime and cane syrup in Ti punch Excellent
Dostal jsem darem lahvinku tohoto 50° "speciálu", dovezeného přímo ze země původu. Vůně něco mezi domácím kalvádosem a slivovicí - značně ovocná - vypáleného kvasu. Chuť velmi výrazná, ostrá, hřejivá, silná. Nevěřil bych, že je to rum, ale chutnalo.
Idéal pour les rhums arrangés et les cocktails. Un peu sec pour le boire en ti punch.
Very light and grassy. Tastes of fresh cane, similar to a good cachaça. Have not tried sipping it, but can imagine that it would be one-dimensional.
Great for mixing, best rum for ti punch out there. But for sipping I would give him only 4/10.
