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 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

This is another nice XO agricole. Very reasonably priced in Taiwan around 1600NT as I remember.

The nose is very light. A bit of licorice, very herbal.

Tasting the licorice is stronger, spice, something like eucalyptus and a pleasant heat.

Finish is long, but light.

Of the three agricole XOs I've had from Martinique, they're all very unique, but perhaps this is the least complex, so I'd rank them from top to bottom as Rhum JM, Saint James, and Clement. Personally , I do not like sweet rums...agricole is not for every rum drinker.

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 ....

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.

I could not drink this, the light color should have told me from the start but this just burns and taste like alcohol and that is it.

8:The nose of this rhum agricole is fresh and minty, green apple arises. It's also loaded with spices, also fresh (curry). It's complex, vegetal and decidedly fresh, like cut grass or Alpine tea. Then a lovely woodiness enters the scene. Finely spiced, it is reminiscent of a cigar box with a hint of vanilla. This woodiness grows stronger, appearing whiter and younger. The cane becomes more powerful, accompanied by its faithful white pepper. A certain naturalness is restored with this wood and fresh cane.
On aeration, sophistication returns with licorice spiked with caraway seeds. We return to the depths of the oak barrel. The woodiness is still new, but softened by honey. Its freshness now brings to mind again apple and pear.
7,8:The palate is well-balanced, typical agricole with as much room for cane as for spice and wood. A certain acidity stimulates the taste buds, which seem to deliver a sweet juice where wood and vanilla merge.
8:Finish-The spices persist, little vanilla joined in the end by past fruits, some nice peaches, licorice, that had remained discreet until then.

I picked this one up after hearing whispers of it being a bar staple for great Mai Tais. The specs sounded like it might be up my alley for a solid longer Aged Agricole. I expected that it would be a decent alternative for when I didn’t want to burn through my beloved Neisson Speciale. So it seemed like a pretty solid get for my rum bar. I did not at all expect what I am about to write.

For starters, this, like most Agricoles, is made from fresh pressed sugar cane juice harvested on Martinique which is then fermented and distilled on a column still. It is then tropically aged in Martinique for 6 years alternating between virgin French Oak casks and ex-Bourbon casks. Nothing extraordinary when it comes to longer aged Agricoles. So what’s the low down?

The nose is quite aromatic but nothing extraordinary, yet still quite delightful. I get Liqueur filled Chocolate bonbons, Dates, and the aroma of a musty old Haybarn. Then Cuban Cigarillos, Red Wine (maybe Carbanet Sauvignon?), Moldy Hay, and Buttescotch. Actually, come to think of it, thats 7 distinct notes…that’s quite complex for an aged Agricole. It is quite nice, and yet it belies what hits you on the palate.

The sip is far more complex and delightful for an aged Rhum Agricole than I had imagined. The palate starts with Cognac and the taste of Southern Sweet Tea like a hot afternoon in costal South Carolina. Then it turns Antique Furniture and rich Dark Chocolate. There are notes of whole Black peppercorns reminding you of the French oak aging. It’s present but not oppressive. Then mossy mineral spring water and sherried oranges. As it hits the back of the throat on the front of the tongue I get the brown sugar part of a pecan sandy. This is way more complex and delightful than I even remotely imagined.

As the rum leaves my mouth I get fine cigar smoke, antique furniture, and a hint of butterscotch. As I sip and pause the aftertaste dark chocolate, musty old Haybarn and the slight aroma of whole Black peppercorns comes roaring back. After the glass is finished I am left with the distinct impression that I just sniffed a fine Cuban Cigarillo.

Wow! I did not at all expect this to be even remotely that deep, complex, and alluring. This is an experience. In fact, I am going to come right out and say this is the best aged Rhum Agricole in my collection. I did not anticipate writing those words. And I am sure some, maybe even many, will disagree - but subjectively this one is just right up my alley for a full, immersive complex aged Agricole. Forget making Mai Tai variations. This one is for relaxed thoughtful sipping only. This one is going into the sipping cabinet. Man, I did not see that coming at all. You best believe I am stocking up on this one.

Short Description: Way deeper and more nuanced than I anticipated. A Rhum Agricole that proves that class rums don’t always have to be exclusive bottlings or come with triple digit price tags
