Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
Nice gold brown colour
Nose: dried fruits, grass, mocka, vanilla and wood
Taste: like a light smokey whisky, litle sweetness, orange and vanilla, pleasant and long taste
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.
I don't like agricole. This one is not sweet and has some papper aroma. I would say it's a good one, it's not simple.
Smell: citrus, vanilla, fermented fruits (pear, water melon) or call it fanta, olives/salt, medicine, pepper, some smoke
Taste initial: paper, salt, medicine
Taste middle: vanilla, paper, white pepper
Finish: dry, paper, again pepper, spice
Aftertaste: pepper then fruits
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.
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!
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.
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.
