“Un Saint James qui se fait remarquer par sa douceur et sa complexité. Le nez oscille avec douceur entre la fraîcheur végétale, les notes de fruits rouges et tropicaux, le bois, la vanille, le caramel, le cacao et le café. En bouche, on retrouve des saveurs similaires qui se mélangent tout en finesse. La texture du rhum est exquise : crémeux, onctueux, un peu gras et bien fourni en arômes, notamment sur les épices, le bois, le café et le chocolat. La finale est longue et porte sur des notes de cuir, de rôti, de bois et de café notamment, suivis de caramel et de fruits. Un vrai régal gustatif, au rapport qualité / prix excellent.”

“I love the rums from Saint James because they deliver to their name. I have the 1997, 1998 and 1999 single cask and they're all really good. This one is wonderfully fruity with spices and wood. Ib the back i find caramel and tobacco. The finish is wonderful and long and the caramel is strong without being too dominant. After a couple of hours the nose coming from this glass is wonderful.”
