Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Pour la bouteille, il mérite la moyenne. J'ajoute un point pour le contenu. Sec avec une belle longueur, il ne tient pas la comparaison avec un JM 1845 par exemple.
Le tarif et la belle carafe desservent le produit : on en attend davantage et du coup on est déçu...
Woody and smokey in the nose,on the tongue nearly not spicey and round. The taste is not too much strong with a bit of wood and vanilla. In fact, the taste is very very special
I think like most clément (without tasting the xo) , spicey and not too sweet.
I bought it for 75 €, normally in the shop for 95€. But for the 75€ ok.
As i am still an amateur, i think I have to wait a bit, till my taste is getting more experienced.
Bottle is such a beauty
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.
Un excellent rhum, un de mes préférés chez Clément
I thought I'd try a bottle since I really like the Clement XO. The XO is MUCH better imho.
This has a nice agricole scent to it, but lacks the sweetness of the XO. Sugarcane, almonds, bourbon, and oak. Taste follows the nose.
It's a good rum,but not worth ~$100 (my rating does NOT factor in the price). I actually prefer the Clement 10 Year to this.
Color : Dark amber, gold
Flavour : Caramel toffie, white chocolate, bananas
Palate : Little dry, with fruity finish.
Love connection with cuban cigars.
One of the best rhums I have ever tried
Quiet possibly my palate is not ready for this RUM... I was totally disappointment in the taste. I did not leave a pleasant aftertaste.
I certainly didn't hate this, but I did expect a bit more out of it. Easily the most impressive thing about this rhum is the packaging, which I assume is what gives it its price. The screw cap is a solid chunk of metal!
It unfortunately lacks character throughout. There isn't much nose to this. The pallet is dry, spicy, with a hint of dry apricot. It's missing a rich, lingering finish. The color is nice.
It was pretty to look at, but I won't be buying this again.
Color : Dark amber
Flavour : Caramel and summer fruits like apricot , some spicy notes hold together with oak flavour
Palate : Dry, subtle
A nice classic rum
Does not taste like rhum. Of course it really is a fine agricole. But my mouth disagrees. It's entirely possible my palate is not advanced enough for this, but I could swear it has the body of a quality cognac rather than anything out of the caribbean. Not for me, but if you drink daily and are looking for something that pushes the end-user's definition of rhum, by all means.
