Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
One od my favorites rums so far and the first Agricole I have tried. Very aromatic with a fruity charakter of oranges, orange zest, dried fruits, oak and cocoa nibs. Dry and slightly sharp in the finish with cocolate notes and spices.
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.
It was my first agricole (rhum made with French dominions’ style by pressing sugarcanes to extract juice instead of molasses) and it really impressed me.
At the nose is wonderful with scent of oak, toasted fruit, orange and vanilla. The persistence of taste is good and it doesn’t burn in the throat with right balance of sweets and tastes of chocolate and almond.
For the price I payed (69€) I must admit this is a very great rhum but many stores sell it for 80/90 which is in my opinion too much.
