Rhum Clement should be its own category

Finally got a bottle of the Premiere Canne and the Creole Shrubb (I'm relatively new to the sophisticated liquor world). Wow, This is not rum, this is something completely different. I've tried Mount Gay's "sugar cane brandy" (has another name in the US), and while somewhat interesting, it doesn't compare to the Rhum Clement complex, cognac quality. I am excited to try their other offerings now. I imagine these other rhum agricoles have similar flavor profiles. In my opinion, these "rumgnacs" should have an even more distinct name. I balked when I first saw it for $30, thinking "$30 for white rum?" which is completely unfair once you taste it. Anybody else have similar feelings about these products?
