Visited the Habitation Clement distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Comprehensive distillery tour with an open tasting bar. Clement Canne Bleue 2015 was priced at EUR 35 at the distillery. Fresh bottle and label design. Super dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, spices, citrus and floral notes to the nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end being so dry. Rhum Agricole fan boys can add 2 points to my score.
N- Grape-y, glucose with drift of sweaty nuance. Stone fruits, pungent spice with prickly spirits. Chinese bai-jio. Exotic smoked fish at tail. Some nice elements in here but feel the lack of integration. (85/19)
P- Struck matches, sulphur with tropical stone fruit, apricot, lychee and all sorts. Juicy and sugary, but not too expressive and appeared subdue. (85/19)
F- Medium, tad sugar residue, dry, medium body and just ok. (84/18)
Weighted Rate- 75pt

Un très bon rhum agricole blanc. Le goût change d'une année à l'autre. Celle-ci est florale et fruitée.
2015 vintage white rhum Agricole made by Blue Cane in Martinique.
In the glass, it's grassy with spearmint, sweet cane and passionfruit in creamy yogurt.
Clean in taste, peppery, grassy and twig, raw corn sweetness, diluted cane juice and fresh cucumber.
Taste of fermented rice wine, earthy, grassy (cucumber) and sweetness which clog on the throat.
This will be a perfect pick for a person who have yet to try any rhum Agricole. Although it's a little sweet towards the end but it balance well with the earthy aftertaste.
Nez et bouche dégagent une fraicheur végétale, florale et citronnée. Rien d’exceptionnel non plus, c’est un rhum assez timide en puissance et en saveur, mais plutôt bon et agréable à boire.
Rhum Agricole takes some getting used to. This white version is very grassy and I wouldn't recommend it for sipping, not that I think that's what it's meant for.
It's ok with Coke but I'll save this for experimenting with cocktails.
