Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It is not my cup of tea. I am probably not a fan of agricole rum.
I bought this bottle on the advice of a salesperson in a highend liquor store. I have had several drinks from this bottle.
This is very straightforward rum that resembles an unaged light rum. The nose is heavy on alcohol and tastes like lighter fluid. I know this rum uses a different fermentation process. It just does not appeal to whatsoever.
Ietwat zoete agricole rum, veel hout,
Vanille, noten. Zacht, droog.
" Clement Cuvee Homere is een vintage rum die finesse en kracht combineert en balanceert, een rum ter ere van de oprichter Homère Clément. Het distillaat is gemaakt van de 3 beste vintages uit de afgelopen 15 jaar, vintages uit de jaren 1999, 1996 en 1991. "
Feels more like a whiskey than a rum, with distinct oak notes and a long finish. Excellent but pricey for run.
Vegetal note with sugar cane and exotic fruits, this agricole rum is dry but not very strong. In mouth, exotic fruits explode with ananas, banana and a wooded side very present. Nice rum. Rate = 8,5
Came in second place in my flight last night. Enjoyable and not overly sweet.
Un rhum qui a une tres jolie couleur et qui passe tres bien avec un morceau de chocolat. Petit plus pour sa jolie carafe
Light aroma of grass and green apple with a hint of wood. Light body, dry, full wood flavor. Little burn with a fruity aftertaste. Quite lovely.
Rauchiger Geschmack, riecht auch ein wenig nach Karamell, ausserdem finde ich den Rum zimlich scharf und stark. Ich finde den Rum nicht schlecht, aber ich finde auch es gibt in der Preisklasse einige Rums die besser schmecken.
Pour la bouteille, il mérite la moyenne. J'ajoute un point pour le contenu. Sec avec une belle longueur, il ne tient pas la comparaison avec un JM 1845 par exemple.
Le tarif et la belle carafe desservent le produit : on en attend davantage et du coup on est déçu...
Woody and smokey in the nose,on the tongue nearly not spicey and round. The taste is not too much strong with a bit of wood and vanilla. In fact, the taste is very very special
I think like most clément (without tasting the xo) , spicey and not too sweet.
I bought it for 75 €, normally in the shop for 95€. But for the 75€ ok.
As i am still an amateur, i think I have to wait a bit, till my taste is getting more experienced.
Bottle is such a beauty
According to what I have read online this is rum is a blend of the best vintages of the last 15 years. The aroma in the bottle is clean and attractive. I cannot give a more definitive description. Suffice to say I like it. The flavor is outstanding. A dry rum with a hint of sweetness that quickly gives way to a distinct oakiness that is not bitter at all. The warmth of the rum spreads throughout and settles delightfully in the throat for a rather lengthy stay. Slowly fading while the tounge tingles. This is Clement's top-of-the-line rum and it is worth every penny. The bottle is quite fancy with gold leaf lettering on the front, a glass etched illustration of the "Habitation Clement - XVIII Siecle", and a screw top made from a heavy metal.
Un excellent rhum, un de mes préférés chez Clément
I thought I'd try a bottle since I really like the Clement XO. The XO is MUCH better imho.
This has a nice agricole scent to it, but lacks the sweetness of the XO. Sugarcane, almonds, bourbon, and oak. Taste follows the nose.
It's a good rum,but not worth ~$100 (my rating does NOT factor in the price). I actually prefer the Clement 10 Year to this.
Color : Dark amber, gold
Flavour : Caramel toffie, white chocolate, bananas
Palate : Little dry, with fruity finish.
Love connection with cuban cigars.
One of the best rhums I have ever tried
Quiet possibly my palate is not ready for this RUM... I was totally disappointment in the taste. I did not leave a pleasant aftertaste.
I certainly didn't hate this, but I did expect a bit more out of it. Easily the most impressive thing about this rhum is the packaging, which I assume is what gives it its price. The screw cap is a solid chunk of metal!
It unfortunately lacks character throughout. There isn't much nose to this. The pallet is dry, spicy, with a hint of dry apricot. It's missing a rich, lingering finish. The color is nice.
It was pretty to look at, but I won't be buying this again.
Color : Dark amber
Flavour : Caramel and summer fruits like apricot , some spicy notes hold together with oak flavour
Palate : Dry, subtle
A nice classic rum
Does not taste like rhum. Of course it really is a fine agricole. But my mouth disagrees. It's entirely possible my palate is not advanced enough for this, but I could swear it has the body of a quality cognac rather than anything out of the caribbean. Not for me, but if you drink daily and are looking for something that pushes the end-user's definition of rhum, by all means.
