Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is my second Clement rhum and I initially wasn’t fond of it. It, however, is growing on me, if you let the rhum sit in your glass for 20 minutes or so the flavours shine and I really enjoy this rhum
way better than their vsop, i feel sweetness of ripe tropical fruits, taking this after
breakfast with a strong non sweetened short espresso,
ah the contrast bitter/sweet is so good, looking at the sea while sitting at the bar terrace,
thinking (sweet memories) about the trip in martinique some years ago ....
Sattes Strohgelb im Glas.
In der Nase mehrschichtig und komplex. Saftige reife tropische Früchte frisch vom Baum gefallen, liegen im noch taufeuchten Gras. Dunkelgrünes Moos mit zartem Karamell durchzogen wuchert auf einem getoastetem Holz.
Am Gaumen weich und warm. Die schmackhaften tropischen Früchte werden mit dem edlen Karamell vermählt. Grasige und holzige Noten klingen mit, ein Hauch Kräuter und Gewürze schwingen harmonisch im Hintergrund dazu.
Im Abgang richtig lang und lecker. Süsses Karamell am Holzstiel gelutscht bis nur noch das Holz im Mund ist. Ganz am Schluss bleibt eine Prise Zimt auf den Lippen.
Ein toller Agricole der Genuss verspricht. Wie Jagsroy erwähnt hat braucht dieser Rhum eine lange offene Zeit um sich richtig zu entfalten. Ich empfehle dazu noch eine genügend warme Temperatur von ca. 25° C. Für Einsteiger und Geniesser, auch für Diejenigen die es einmal mit Rhum Agricole probieren möchten.

Rich straw yellow in the glass.
Multilayered and complex on the nose. Juicy ripe tropical fruit freshly fallen from the tree lies in the still dewy grass. Dark green moss infused with delicate caramel proliferates on a toasted wood.
Soft and warm on the palate. The tasty tropical fruits are married with the noble caramel. Grassy and woody notes resonate, a touch of herbs and spices swing harmoniously in the background.
The finish is really long and delicious. Sweet caramel sucked on the wood stick until only the wood is in the mouth. At the very end, a pinch of cinnamon remains on the lips.
A great Agricole that promises enjoyment. As Jagsroy mentioned, this rhum needs a long open time to develop properly. I recommend a sufficiently warm temperature of about 25 ° C. For beginners and connoisseurs, even for those who want to try it once with Rhum Agricole.

This was a disappointment for me. Maybe the batch or bottle was bad, but the taste was weird, like something chemical.
Прекрасный запах, подплавленных леденцов, спелых фруктов и общей тростниковой свежести.
I think I expected more from this bottle but maybe it’s my fault. I was hoping for a grassier nose and flavor like the Clement Premium but with more complexity due to the barrel aging. Instead of grassiness I get floral notes which are ok but not exactly what I was going for. Very similar to Rhum JM VO or XO. Not much reason to own both in my opinion.
First, it is not fair to this rum that I experienced the 15-year first as a birthday gift. But that’s what happened so I agree that this bottle is a disappointment.
I’m gonna try an Agric’Old Fashioned and see how it goes.
This was my favourite rum when I first tried it. Warm cognac flavours were wonderful and rich. Day 3, the rum was sharper on the palate, but still with warm vegetal notes. Opening the bottle a week later, most of the pleasing qualities had given way to a sharp and only very lightly aged rum. A few months later, I have put this in the bar as a mixing rum for variety. Definitely not worth the high price of admission.
This is a very pleasant blend. Lots of age oak. More depth than many of the Clement blends. I would say it is an affordable blend as close as you can get to the rare single vintage rare rhum Clements in the "straw bottles"
Well worth the price
