Simply one of the very best rums we’ve come across.
A superb blend of Rhum Agricoles from Martinique distillery Rhum Clément. Rhum Agricole is known for its fresh and fragrant style, distinguishable from other rums as it is made using the fermented juice of the sugar cane, rather than a sugar by product.
This is one of the finest examples of the style you are ever likely to encounter. Aged for up to 30 years in 200 litre oak casks, and a minimum of 10 years, this spirit has developed an incredible complexity and maturity.
Drinkers can expect a thick, luscious body, with waves upon waves of dense tropical fruit flavours, sweet lime rind, bananas, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, old oak, clear honey, finishing with a strong note of cooked apples.
The flavours are all given a boost by the slightly higher proof of 44% ABV.
The final product is beautifully presented in a magnificent crystal decanter, which would be the showpiece of even the most complete collection. Very few bottles of this outstanding rum were made.
