“Impressively complex, fruity, warm spices; collector's delight though pricey.”

Introducing the "Elliott Erwitt," a remarkable rum from the Saint James distillery in Martinique. Produced in 2006, this limited release was crafted with sugar cane juice and distilled using a Creole Column. Aged for 15 years and bottled by independent bottler Velier, this rum comes with 45% ABV and a mere 1200 bottles produced. The smell offers notes of wood, spice, vegetation, coffee, and dried fruit, while the taste is a bold combination of wood, chocolate, vegetation, roasted, and nutty. RumX community members praise its well-rounded and warm palate with a complex balance of fruity and woody notes. Although the price may be steep, this rum is considered a collector's item with a character unique to the Saint James lineup.

“I got a sample from each release yesterday and had to give them a go right away. The price tag on these is pretty high compared to the regular releases! The nose is well balanced and fruity with leather, flowers, ginger roasted coffee and light oak. The palate is complex, well balanced and warm with oak, nutmeg, citrus, coffee as well as light tea and nutty flavours. The finish is long with oak, vanilla, apricot, coffee and licorice. The price doesn't match the quality in my mind, but this is probably going to be a collectors item.”

“Great rum, which the drinking strength is very good to face. Very round and just as strong as varied in taste. Beats even in direct comparison with St. James bottlings with higher alcohol content excellent.”
