This particular offering is produced on traditional coffey column stills from fresh blue sugar cane juice. It is then rested in stainless steel vats for six months. During this time the distillate is reduced down to the final abv of 50%. Very grassy, very vegetal on the nose. Big notes of sweet sugar cane. Sipping this rum is a very intense experience. It?s not as sweet as the nose with some very pungent medicinal notes. A touch of cough mixture. It?s very grassy and very zesty. Bitter-sweet combo.
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 distill 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 Cl?ment has been carried out according to the purest traditions and most time-honored inherited from Charles and Hom?re Cl?ment.
