Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is an agricole that can compete with low end aged rum. It has a nice scent and flavor of caramel, a peppery spice, cocoa, and sugar.
Un autre grand classique. Boisé et vanillé sans chichi.
Schmeckt ein bisschen wie Whisky. Ein wenig rauchig im Geschmack, nicht unbedingt mit Favorit!
Such a good Rhum agricole lovely flavour and depth to it I'm a big admirer not as good as the orange flavoured one though
My first Martinique rum. Different from anything else I've tried. Bright and a little medicinal. No burn.
Good but not great, a little harsh and smokey, better an ice
No wow factor for the price. Did not really like it but I mixed it with coke and it was nice light and airy
This is a good VSOP level well bodied and work ... it has strength but the taste stays a classic elegant drink that will satisfy those who want to substitute rhum from other Brandy
Doux, légèrement sucré, avec de fines notes toastées
N''étant pas spécialement fan des agricoles j''ai été surpris par celui-ci et son côté bourbon amandes grillées.
Excellent comme digestif
We taste this Rum during our Sailing Törn directly in de Rum Distillery Clement in Martinique :-)
smooth. great w/ Coke. no alcohol finish. a tad sweet.
It's different. Like hay or as some had said, grass. It's warm and there is definite heat in the throat. However, the aftertaste of honey and dried fruit makes this rhum sing.
Ce rhum manque un peu de souplesse ! Le boisé est trop présent à mon goût ...
bon rhum..passe avec tout...pour le prix c est dans la categorie moyenne
J'aime particulièrement les ronds et ce rhum est encore un peu trop sec. Je resterai donc pour le moment dans les rhums de mélasse pour l'instant. Bonne dégustation!
Rhum correct tres sec qui passe bien en digestif standard
Caramel and dried fruit nose with coconut and banana finish.
Sec en bouche, il laisse sur la langue un fort de bois humide. Les arômes sont là, mais ce n'est pas mon genre.
This is a great rum to break into the wild world of Rhum Agricol, and you should!! The grassy, funky flavors are really not like anything else, but this aged Agricol has been polished and smoothed making it very accessible while still bringing the funkiness to the table. Great in spirit forward cocktails, ala rum old fashioned, spirit driven Tiki offerings, or straight up. Bring the Funk!
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.
you get a good rum for small bucks. the vsop from clement is a good starting rhum for the field of agricole. smokey, green gras, hints of vanilla an a little bit harsh. make it warm and n-joy. (in the field of the very good rhums, this one failed. it´s too simple in comparsion to ie h.s.e, longueteau & damoiseau.)
While I would not consider this rum spectacular, I cannot deny that that it is a quality product. It is a good, but not great sipping rum. Nothing in particular stands out in its profile but it should not be discounted as a well-created product.
A good choice if you like the "Rhums vieux agricoles" type of drink. Not the greatest i've tasted so far but worth the low price it costs. Good not only neat but also over ice or mixed with coke or orange juice.
Ce rhum est type par son cote boise.un cote un peu trop present.mais di c un peu un defaut celale rend caracteristique.il reste assez agreable et on y revient avec plaisir .je le conseille ,mais le vsop de damoiseau est bien meilleur ainsi que le xo qui est different dans leur gamme mais plus cher.
