Saint James Elliott Erwitt (RX10643)
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.

I like it really well! Wonderfully round with fruity and tropical woody notes.

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.

Bon saint James. Un peu simple en bouche, ça manque d'un petit coup de fruité. En bref c'est la bouteille qu'on veut pour la collection ou alors qu'on passera étant donné le prix et la difficulté à se la procurer.

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.

I find it surprisingly good.

not a bad St. James, but I've had better in the glass, with similar and zT less maturity, which were even more complex and deeper. This one still seems a little 'green behind the ears' for its 15 years.

Typical St. James in best execution.unfortunately very expensive and hard to get. Similar quality you get without Velier already significantly cheaper.

Tabak, Würze, Holz, Kräuter, etwas alte Demeraras. Die Verdünnung ist kein Problem, der Alkohol könnte einen Ticken besser eingebunden sein. Einzig Preis und Nichtverfügbarkeit schmälern das Vergnügen.
