A 2002 vintage Clement Rhum Agricole from Martinique, bottled in April 2019 after almost two decades of maturation. Aromas of eucalyptus, spicy oak, mango and banana fill the nose, complemented by notes of pecans, peaches and toasty oak on the palate.
Originally a sugar plantation, the Clement distillery sits on a 43-acre estate in Martinique that grows its own sugarcane to extract first-pressed aromatic and flavorful sugarcane juice to distil pure Rhum from. This has become quite the focal point in the Rhum Agricole world with over 160,000 visitors making a pilgrimage there each year. Since 1887, the production of Rhum Clement has been carried out according to the purest traditions and most time-honored inherited from Charles and Homere Clement.
