Clement VSOP is a rhum agricole, matured for a year in virgin French oak barrels, before a three maturation in re-charred bourbon barrels. This was awarded a Gold by the Beverage Tasting Institute and also received 96 points out of a possible 100 from Wine Enthusiast. Light in body, but nonetheless spiced and warming. Crisp fruits, plenty of oak, orchard fruits. Ends on apple peels, spice and toffee.
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.
