It is of a dark amber color bright. To smell appears to have a complex and elegant bouquet, made of spicy notes, hints of dried fruit, sugar cane, caramel, fig, cedar and raisins. The palate is soft, full and long, with an intense aftertaste falling upon the dried fruit.
Since 1887 the production of Rhum Clément takes place following the most pure agricultural traditions, and rules of a secret recipe that has been handed down for centuries from generation to generation.
