“Kakao trifft auf verbranntes Fass und dunkle Früchte - leider bleibt die Alkoholstärke hier ein recht präsenter Begleiter. Insgesamt eine durchaus abwechslungsreiche Balance aus herben, frischen und süssen Noten. In der aufgerufenen Preisklasse eine empfehlenswerte Abfüllung - insgesamt gibt es aber zweifelsohne bessere Rums von St. James.”
