Tasty, but not quite great
Agricole is slowly becoming one of my favorite styles. It can offer such a beautiful mixture of complexity and dry delicacy with a natural sweetness to die for. I eagerly dive in. The Clement 6 year has a very floral and grassy nose. It´s a little spicy with notes of pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugarcane and oaky tannin's. Very intriguing nose. The taste struggles a bit compared to the nose. The profile of notes is similar to the nose, but the balance just tilts a tad in the acidic direction. Given the money it's nice, but the depaz vieux fx. offers better value in my book.
Je m’attendais à mieux. J’aime les rhums agricoles, leurs chaleurs et leurs caractères sec pourtant ce 6 ans d’âge m’a un peu déçu. Il a des saveurs florales intéressantes mais l’alcool y est quand même très dominant. Dans la même gamme de prix, le hors d’âge qu’un ami m’a fait gouter est vraiment supérieur.
I expected better. I like agricultural rums, their warmth and dry character, yet the 6 years old disappointed me. It has an interesting floral taste but alcohol is still very dominant. In the same price range, the hors d’age is really superior.
This is a decent rum. I prefer it to the Clement VSOP, but it's a little hot at 44%abv.
The smell is really nice. Has a strong floral note, with honeysuckle, sugarcane, oak, and cinnamon. Taste is similar, but I don't think it should be 44%abv (to me, only top shelf rums should be this strong).
I definitely prefer it to the Clement VSOP, but it's a little too expensive to justify the $56.99 price (Beltramo Wines 2015). My score does not factor in the price.
It's an interesting product, with some character. Sip it slowly to avoid the harshness of those "young" agricole rhums and allow some time to let it breath some oxygen. The taste is quite fresh and sweet.
The palette is interesting, very floral with some hints of vanilla.
