A new edition of Clément’s “Créole Column” series of Rhum Agricole.
This rum is produced using the fermented juice of the pressed sugar cane, in the traditional Agricole style.
Distilled in the old column stills of the Simon distillery, which is located in the plot across from Clément’s estate. These ancient stills are said to be peculiar in that they “exhale intense perfumes” giving the spirit a well rounded character.
This bottling has been carefully blended by Clément’s Cellar Master, Robert Peronet, and the head oenologist, Gaëlle Hardy. It contains rums matured for between 3 and 10 years in former Bourbon barrels.
The result is a well balanced and complex rum, that offers up notes of vanilla, coconut, tobacco, tropical fruits (pineapple and mango particularly), milk chocolate, old oak, bananas, brown sugar, cornbread, cedarwood and toffee.
A superb rum from Clément: somewhat dry, whilst retaining its fruitiness.
