Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Au nez, on a quelque chose d’assez fin. Les fruits (raisin et pruneau) ainsi que les fruits à coque (noisette et amande) sont les marqueurs principaux de ce nez. Le caramel est également présent, au second plan.
En bouche on retrouve un peu moins les fruits et c’est sec. Un léger côté poivré fait son apparition et une note salée surprenante se fraiera un passage discret jusqu’à vos papilles.
La finale est longue et sèche. Elle est dominée par les épices et les fruits secs. Après un moment vous retrouverez la note de poivre.
I finished this off at Christmas time, and have forgotten most of the critical particulars. It was the first Agricole I have had; so I am not expert on the comparison. I enjoyed it mostly neat. I have read other reviews who opine that it is like whiskey. As a single malt sipper, I find that might have been the attraction. The sugar syrup versus molasses derivation is still a mystery to me. I will buy it again after a few more trips around the rum "block." I really was attracted by the shelf presence of the bottle and the look of the label.
Nice, light, and grassy rum. Sits comfortably on the palate like a grasshopper sunbathing on a blade of grass. Slow and steady wins the race.
This is average agricole with a nice clement character.
So it isnt corked. Boo caps are lame, cork it please. Opening it and smelling it smells exactly and I mean to no exaggeration it smells exactly like Woodford reserve bourbon. Like a granny smith apple with some wood in it. Pouring it is a pain cause it runs down the side of the bottle and gets all over the place. In the glass it smells much the same as the bottle. And drinking it tastes exactly like..... Woodford reserve, like to the point I think it is woodford reserve. It acts the same way in the mouth too, bites in the same points ect. So this is hard to rate. Because its literally a bourbon not a rum. So rum I would give this a 0 for it not being rum but as I bourbon I give it 9. I'm just gonna be one of the sheep and say this is a 7 lol.
Es probablemente el mejor agricole que he probado. Muy agradable en nariz, pero bastante suave. En boca, fuerte pero no agresivo. Es un ron muy honesto, pero nada extraordinario.
Caramel and dried fruit nose with coconut and banana finish.
As the title says, great for Mai Tais and other cocktails. Overall great Agricole.
A little boozy, but has a fruity flavor that only comes from the cane juice. Easily my favorite example of the style.
I like this one. Not so familiar with the french type rhums, but this one is my cup of thea.
A good Martinique rum. Made for sipping in a aroma glass
Nez un peu sur le Whiskey. Sur des arômes d’épice et de caramel. Alcool présent.
Ook gekocht in de super markt van cote d' azure heerlijke rum past goed bij mijn nieuwe sigaren
Ein typischer Vertreter aus dem Hause Clément.
In der Nase unaufdringliche Noten von tropischen Früchten und ein hauch Vanille.
im Gaumen ein richtiger Schmeichler, elegant und geschmeidig wird die Zunge von
zarten Vanille und Holznoten umgarnt. Auch die Fruchtaromen fehlen nicht.
Im Abgang klingen die Fruchtnoten lange nach.
Ein wahrlich leckerer Sommerruhm.
A typical representative from Clément.
In the nose unobtrusive notes of tropical fruits and a touch of vanilla.
In the palate a real flatter, elegant and supple the tongue is surrounded
by delicate vanilla and woodnotes. Also the fruit aromas are not missing.
In the finish, the fruit notes stays long.
A truly delicious summerruhm.
N''étant pas spécialement fan des agricoles j''ai été surpris par celui-ci et son côté bourbon amandes grillées.
Excellent comme digestif
I will have to try more agricole rums after tasting this. Woody and alcohol on the nose with a spicy smell. Good flavour with a light burn and a smooth finish.
As a first foray into rhum agricole, this proved to be a pleasant surprise as I had read how different agricoles were to molasses-based rums and was expecting something radically different.
Yes, it is drier than molasses-based rum, with a grassy note and a herbal undercurrent that I just can't place, but it has a pleasant sweetness and complexity.
Unlike others here, I found that drinking it over ice actually made it slightly less enjoyable.
Weich, trocken, etwas spritig, dünn. Trotzdem ganz interessant.
This is my first taste of a Clement Agricole product. It is very dry (which I like) and I am not familiar with this taste, on this site some refer to it as similar to cognac, which I find OK but not exactly what I was expecting. It is nevertheless not a bad rum.
Un rhum honnête sans grande prétention. Un bon agricole, pour bien débuter.
got a bottle for my Birthday, and found out this is more of a sipping rum than a mixer! Over ice and letting it sit for a while gets the flavours to respond. Did not mix well with cola! Opens with oak and floral notes and then after sitting for a while, presents a few spice notes. Smooth after sitting, but edgy after the pour!
Great nose, but a bit on the mute side when it comes to the taste.
Initial aromas of French oak, orange pulp and some fruity/floral esters. In the glass it leaves very thin legs that quickly, mostly dissipate. In the mouth , it leads off crisp and dry with hints of citrus, white pepper with French oak and floral-earthiness sneeking in. Drinks much like a robust but delicate, fine cognac. However, the French oak hasn’t overpowered the spirit like it often can and brings a little more sweetness along with that great hogo, or funk, and is a example what a nicley balanced Agricole can be.
Delicious nose with warm grass, oak, and caramel. It's really a pleasure to smell. Unfortunately, the palate goes another direction: saltwater and brine, with grass and subtle sweetness. Briney rums just don't do it for me. After time, some pepper emerges.
This IS more refined than Select Barrel, with more wood and less harshness. But the salt's just not my thing.
I'm not sure about this one as a sipper, but I'm sure it would make a killer Ti Punch.
8-, 7+ (might be 8- with a future tasting)
