Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
According to what I have read online this is rum is a blend of the best vintages of the last 15 years. The aroma in the bottle is clean and attractive. I cannot give a more definitive description. Suffice to say I like it. The flavor is outstanding. A dry rum with a hint of sweetness that quickly gives way to a distinct oakiness that is not bitter at all. The warmth of the rum spreads throughout and settles delightfully in the throat for a rather lengthy stay. Slowly fading while the tounge tingles. This is Clement's top-of-the-line rum and it is worth every penny. The bottle is quite fancy with gold leaf lettering on the front, a glass etched illustration of the "Habitation Clement - XVIII Siecle", and a screw top made from a heavy metal.
Visited the Habitation Clement distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Comprehensive distillery tour with an open tasting bar. Clement Cuvee Homere was priced at EUR 70 at the distillery. Very nice old school bottle and label design. Deep golden color. Super dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass and strong oak, but also mild sweetness from the typical Cognac aging are present to the nose and palate. Quite a burn at the end being so dry. Rhum Agricole fan boys can add 2 points to my score.
Comes of refined with vinous, floral oaky notes and a hint of sugarcane in the nose. In the mouth it starts of fairly sweet for an agicole. Spicy notes of oak, white pepper and a bit of dark chocolate emerges after the initial sweetness, but it stays well rounded with a lingering finish. Quality rhum, that doesn't take any adventurous risks to really set it aside in the price bracket. But when in the mood for uncomplicated quality rhum, this fits the bill very well.
It is not my cup of tea. I am probably not a fan of agricole rum.
A nice cognac like rum with notes of grass, herbs, floral, caramelized sugar, chocolate, and pepper.
One of the better Clements, but still pretty good.
Good stuff, this is the best Clement i have partook in. I that a word, anyhow, very smooth, not as much a "in your Face" rum as many of the others they produce but very well worth the buck.
Pretty sweet for an agricole. Decent body with some peppers, oak and the distinctive bagasse smell. Burnt caramel, plums. Dry overall. Perfect for sipping. Elegant bottle as well. Definitely worth having in your cabinet.
This is a lovely aged agricole with a very dry finish. Lots of oak, and spices with classic grassy notes underneath. I would have expected it to be a little bit more refined for the price point. I think I still prefer Trois Rivieres Special Reserve (VSOP outside the USA).
The Rhum Agricole is not for me.
The fact that it is made from sugar cane instead of molasses
means that it has a totally different taste from traditional rum.
A pleasant agricole. Uncomplicated and crisp rum from Clement where they use rum from selected barrels to create a pleasant, light yet fire rum. Good oak, hint of spice, crisp dry, long aftertaste and an elegant presentation that sets your mind in mood.
Un bel assemblage très équilibré produit dans une des plus belles habitations de Martinique
It’s an aged Rhum Agricole not very sweet, in fact fairly dry, strong aftertaste. From Martinique, great looking bottle, very elegant. Feel it throughout your mouth and nose as you drink it. Pleasant aroma and could be good sipping rum for some, but only average for my taste and overpriced in my opinion.
My first agricole, so I don't know what to expect. It's definitely not my favorite, but it's still a very nice addition to the collection. Very different from what I usually drink
Overpriced I think though
Un des rhums haut de gamme de chez Clément, assemblage de rhums de 6 ans et +. 44°.
Design : un gros effort a été fait sur la présentation avec un bel écrin et jolie bouteille, le rhum a une couleur ambrée.
Nez : agréable, dominante de vieux fruits et de boisé.
En bouche : attaque assez douce, puis viennent des saveurs de fruits confits, d'épices avec un boisé et des tanins présents sans être envahissants, rhum très aromatique.
Finale : longue, canne à sucre avec un petit goût épicé.
Ce rhum est à la hauteur de son écrin, il a le ramage et le plumage. Manque peut-être de fantaisie.
I'm not very experienced with rhum agricoles as I am still strugling with the typical flavour profile. This one is aged longer than most other agricoles I had previously tried and thus tasted more like what I'm used to in molassed based rums.
Very good "re-discovery of the style" which convinced me to take my chances with some more agricoles in the future.
Ce rhum est ds une bouteille magnifique.il est trop sec pour moi qui aime les rhums agricoles sur la canne ou le moele.toutefois certzins adorero t car le boisé est complexe il est puissant en bouche et long aussi.beau produit mais pas ds mes gouts...
I bought this bottle on the advice of a salesperson in a highend liquor store. I have had several drinks from this bottle.
This is very straightforward rum that resembles an unaged light rum. The nose is heavy on alcohol and tastes like lighter fluid. I know this rum uses a different fermentation process. It just does not appeal to whatsoever.
Ietwat zoete agricole rum, veel hout,
Vanille, noten. Zacht, droog.
" Clement Cuvee Homere is een vintage rum die finesse en kracht combineert en balanceert, een rum ter ere van de oprichter Homère Clément. Het distillaat is gemaakt van de 3 beste vintages uit de afgelopen 15 jaar, vintages uit de jaren 1999, 1996 en 1991. "
Feels more like a whiskey than a rum, with distinct oak notes and a long finish. Excellent but pricey for run.
Vegetal note with sugar cane and exotic fruits, this agricole rum is dry but not very strong. In mouth, exotic fruits explode with ananas, banana and a wooded side very present. Nice rum. Rate = 8,5
Came in second place in my flight last night. Enjoyable and not overly sweet.
Un rhum qui a une tres jolie couleur et qui passe tres bien avec un morceau de chocolat. Petit plus pour sa jolie carafe
Light aroma of grass and green apple with a hint of wood. Light body, dry, full wood flavor. Little burn with a fruity aftertaste. Quite lovely.
Rauchiger Geschmack, riecht auch ein wenig nach Karamell, ausserdem finde ich den Rum zimlich scharf und stark. Ich finde den Rum nicht schlecht, aber ich finde auch es gibt in der Preisklasse einige Rums die besser schmecken.
