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.

Gefällt mir richtig gut! Wunderbar rund mit fruchtigen und tropisch holzigen Noten.

Un Saint James assez clivant. Le nez s’ouvre sur des saveurs fruitées assez exotiques, des notes pâtissières, le café, le bois et les épices plus traditionnelles pour donner un joli bouquet. La bouche a un profil plus traditionnel, tourné sur les épices, le bois, les fruits secs, le café et une pointe de chocolat noir. La finale, qui manque un peu de longueur, se veut tannique et amère, caféinée, épicée et légèrement rôtie. Un rhum loin d’être mauvais, mais dont il manque un petit plus pour être vraiment au top. Le prix est malheureusement très élevé par rapport à la qualité du produit.

Typischer St. James in bester Ausführung. Leider sehr teuer und schwer zu bekommen. Ähnliche Qualität bekommt man ohne Velier auch schon deutlich günstiger.

kein schlechter St. James, ich hatte aber auch schon bessere im Glas, mit ähnlicher und zT weniger Reife, die noch komplexer und tiefer waren. Der hier wirkt noch ein wenig ‚grün hinter den Ohren‘ für seine 15 Jahre.
