Tasty, but not quite great
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.
I don't usually drink a 4 year old gold r(h)um but when I do I choose Clement. Light oak taste, definitive "heat"(alcohol taste), mild fruit with a hint of spice and low level of "butteriness".
Clement has a good range of rums that easily slip into a number of other spirit categories. Clement VSOP is a rum agricole that makes a successful transition into the brandy realm.
Bottle: Lovely, simple and old school.
Color: Rich brown.
Bottle Aroma: A hit of a very well aged bourbon gives in to a brandy sweetness.
Glass Aroma: Less intense with an older oak nose.
Taste: A little heat paired with a heavy oak flavor, the agricole grassy sweetness comes in to lend a brandy familiarity, a strong oak finish.
This isn't my style of rum, but it is impressive with its range and depth. It is a great rum on the shelf to share with friends.
Not the greatest fan of Agricole's but this was well made, with a tarry finish to it. Dry, good length. OK but FAR FAR too expensive for what it is.
1st rhum vieux agricole tasted,
Nice amber colored, the "vieux Clément" is dry, a bit harsh in the mouth, with a strong wood note.
Then tobacco and vanilla taste.
Nice and sweet sugarcane finish.
Not bad dry, better in "ty punch".
This is my first experience with Rhum agricole. The nose is spice citrusy. The color is amber. Medium legs on glass. The taste is more like whiskey; very little sweetness. Mild after burn. I prefer sweeter rums. Maybe a good choice for smokey whiskey drinkers but not on my like list.
