Wonderfully deep, sweet, not overly woody, with spicy fruitcake and cassius root and saddle leather. Toffee, honey, mulling spice, vanilla from the oak round out the edges. Finish gets a nit sweeter with notes of Demerrera sugar and maple preceding a silky smooth conclusion of dark dried fruit, tarragon, and a fair dose of drying oak.

Rhum Clément XO is a rare blend of very old aged rums including the highly regarded vintages of 1976, 1970 and 1952, which have been recognized to be the finest ever in Martinique. Each vintage brings to the bottle spice, toffee, and tobacco flavors and our Cellar Master has miraculously married them together to create one of the finest sipping rums in the world. Wonderfully deep, sweet, not overly woody, with spicy fruitcake and cassius root and saddle leather. Toffee, honey, mulling spice, vanilla from the oak round out the edges.

Producer
Martinique has long had the reputation of having the best terroir for sugarcane cultivation, long before Homere Clement had the imaginative idea to press sugarcane to produce Rhum Agricole. Domaine de l’Acajou was purchased in 1887 at the peak of the sugar crisis. The introduction of sugar beets and the increasing availability of cheap South American sugar lead to the collapse of the Martiniquean sugar commerce. As a result, the local economy, which was driven by the principle cash crop of sugar, was in shambles. Many planters were out of work and took to the streets rioting against the bankrupt plantation owners. What once was a rich and lively island was quickly mired in economic despair. At this time, Homere Clement was a very popular member of the Martiniquean community and the mayor of Le Francois. He purchased the prestigious sugar plantation known as Domaine de l’Acajou just 3 kilometers from the center of Le Francois. This 43 acre estate was considered one of the best sugar plantations on the island of Martinique. But as it was stuck in a poor and stagnate sugar economy, it was unfortunately forced into bankruptcy. Homere Clement made the necessary investments and transformed one of the island’s most prestigious sugar plantations into a producer of world-class Rhum Agricole. He had the planters return to the fields to harvest sugarcane once again, but not to refine sugar. His idea was to press his quality estate grown sugarcane to extract first-pressed aromatic and flavorful sugarcane juice to distill pure rhum. Inspired by the enjoyment of great brandies while studying in his early years in Paris, Homere mimicked the distillers of the great Armagnac’s of southwestern France to perfect his method of rhum production known today as Rhum Agricole. Habitation Clement soon became the Mecca of Rhum Agricole and today receives an average of 160,000 thousand spirit enthusiasts and rhum aficionados each year who visit the distillery and taste barrel samples in the cellars. Habitation Clement offers an experience for all. The culture is rich and many people come to spend quiet time visiting the botanical gardens of Habitation Clement, pass by the cellars loaded with barrels of rhum with the smell of rhum evaporating into the heavens, tour the house to take in the classic Creole antiques and architecture, visit brand new art galleries housed in re-furbished rhum cellars as well as tour the museum of Rhum Agricole, which symbolizes the rich cultural heritage of how Rhum Agricole came to be at Rhum Clement and in Martinique. A tour of Habitation Clement is time well-spent on Martinique. A new gift shop and tasting room has been built to welcome visitors to Habitation Clement. Part of the recent developments to the Habitation Clement Experience is a small movie house where visitors can watch a film about plans to finalize the end of the first Persian Gulf War in 1991 in which French President Francois Mitterrand borrowed one of France’s great Caribbean treasures, Habitation Clement, to host President George H.W. Bush and his State Department delegates. Habitation Clement is open to the public daily from 9:30am to 5:00pm.
