Tasty, but not quite great
I have hear so much about Clement that when I had the opportunity to purchase several different bottles I jumped at the chance.
The odor is somewhat astringent and rather strong. A bold aroma telling me this is a rum that is ready, willing, and able to kick some butt if one is not careful.
I have hear the term "grassy" used for agricole rum but wasn't sure of what it was. Until now. The initial flavor on the tongue is quite grassy but is countered by a mild cane sweetness and oakiness. No major burn. Just a nice warmth.
Definitely a versatile rum. Smoother than the Clement 6-year rum. A marked improvement. Those who enjoy a dry rum will find this an immensely satisfying sipping rum but it also makes for excellent mixed drinks as well. The agricole style will give a unique flavor. Too bad not more bars use this in their establishments. I believe it would be a desirable alternative to those wishing something a little different in their cocktails. Definitely a recommendable rum.
Clément 10 year old Rhum Agricole has been distilled from fresh pressed sugarcane juice and aged a minimum of 10 years in a combination of virgin and re-charred oak barrels, yielding an exceptional aged Agricole Rhum with unique characteristics of cinnamon and vanilla. The nose reveals aromatic intensity of raw wood, dried spice and toasted fruit, leading to warm bakery flavors that carry through to an unimaginably lengthy finish.
I tasted this side by side with the Clement 6 year and the Clement Homere. This came closer to the Homere in terms of quality and taste. In fact, I prefer this to the Homere.
Tastes and smells of an agricole with oak, spice, almond, and cinnamon, with a slightly floral accent. It's a very nice agricole, though a bit dry for my taste.
If you love the taste of oak barrels, then this rum is for you. The oak barrel taste is the only flavor you get. No caramel, no molasses, nothing... just oak. Even when you mixe it with soda, you still can't get rid of the oak taste. This rum was probably aged far too long. Disappointing.
Il s'agit d'un assemblage de rhums de 10 ans d'âge.
Design : étui cartonnée, belle bouteille standard de chez Clément. Le rhum a une couleur dorée.
Nez : très parfumé, les odeurs de fruits secs et de boisé dominent.
Bouche : attaque douce, fruitée puis dominante de notes torréfiées et de fruits secs. Le boisé est très (trop?) présent.
Finale : Assez faible, petit arrière goût de réglisse, agréable.
Ce rhum est léger, agréable mais trop de boisé et pas assez de punch.
Le 6 ans m'a laissé une meilleure impression.
Agricole rum van Martinique die 10 jaar heeft gerijpt op eiken vasten. Ik proef vanille, kaneel, amandelen en hout. Droog en niet zoet.
Clement Vieux 10 aged Rum har gardinerne i glasset, duften er også ok, med havde jeg set nogen flere år på bagen. Gennem en kollega har smag Vintage 1975 det var virkelig godt.
Strong and dry, very dry. Didn't like the first glass too much, but appreciated it more and more over time. Not for every night, but it keeps that "special" feel that way. Solid 8 in my book.
