Tasty, but not quite great
OK, to be clear, I mix all my rums with Diet Dr. Pepper. So my ratings are a bit diluted, but this is how I enjoy my rum. I mix 1 shot glass with one 12 oz. can. Try to used cans, i.e. 2-liters don't taste the same. I really enjoy this rum. It is strong and complex is a good way. It seems to change flavors and aromas as you drink it. Not to sweet, not to dry, and offers a good "tickling - flavorful - burn" that is addictive. Since it is very-very flavorful, I could use just a half of a shot glass full and achieve the same pleasurable flavors. I try a lot of rums, and this is a must have for your bucket list to try.
Il s'agit d'un assemblage de rhums ayant au moins 6 ans d'âge, ma bouteille porte la mention XO.
Bouteille : design standard de chez Clément, élégant et sobre. Le rhum a une couleur vieil or.
Nez : arômes de fruits, d'épices et d'alcool (ce rhum titre 42°).
Bouche : attaque douce, fruitée puis dominante de notes boisées, torréfiées et de fruits secs.
Finale : Belle longueur en bouche avec un petit arrière goût de chocolat, vraiment agréable.
Ce rhum mérite de reposer un peu avant la dégustation, pour éviter le goût d'alcool.
Une bonne surprise que ce Clément 6 ans.
I've nearly tried al the range of rums produced by Clement in Martinique (FWI) from the classic white rum up their 10 years old (never had the chance to taste the oldest ones).
The 6 years old is definitely my favorite one among those I've tried. This is the least wooden flavored of the range of old rums produced by Clement which makes it very easy and pleasant to drink.
Please noticed that in France this rum is bottled in the same kind of bottle than the VSOP.
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.
Reliable stopper. Too wide a bottle - it's uncomfortable to hold in your hand.
Aroma is complex and sweet: prune, wood, tobacco, spices, background alcohol.
The taste is woody and burning.
Aggressive pressure on the stomach and the head. However it makes a good mood and a feeling of self-sufficiency. No desire to move to another rum.
In large numbers will make the morning unkind.
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.
I’m slowly being to appreciate argicole rums. It’s very well priced and really delivers wonderful complex aromas without any sweet.
