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 don’t generally like agricole but this one hit the spot. Great stuff.
Last bottle I was looking forward to try of the “entry-level” offer of Clement.
At the nose quite strong, it laters open in a great bouquet of fruit, with a clear influence in taste of bourbon casks.
Comparing it to the VSOP 4-year, precedently rated as a 7, and the 10-years version, which still stands a good point beyond, I find it is a great compromise. Even if it doesn’t reach the complexity of the older brother it does indeed offer a good step forward from the VSOP, adding fruit scents and vanilla to the taste and a lasting experience definitely improved from the younger brother.
I expected the grassy notes of a typical rhum agricole, but did not find many of them. I got oak on the nose and a little bit of earthiness. The flavors developed a bit on subsequent tastings, but only a little. It was spicy with trace of banana. On the plus side, I made a Donga Punch with it, which was excellent.

Agricole von seiner besten Seite / Agricole at its best 8 out of 10
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.
