„A pretty good Saint James. The typical notes are there and I really like the light coffee note in the profile. ABV is pretty well integrated but could have been better. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass reveals even more notes like nutts and light ginger.“

„Very tasty Saint James that does not need more ABV. Powerful on the nose with cherry and honey. Caramel, licorice and wood on the palate. A bit of bitterness (very pleasant) in the finish.“

„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.“

„Mittlerweile bin ich ein Fan von den Saint James Agricoles. Und dieser reiht sich da mühelos ein. Die Nase ist süß/sauer fruchtig mit etwas Fass und Leder. Am Gaumen ein angenehm ledriges, holziges und würziges Aromenspiel. Die 45% stehen ihm außerordentlich gut und er muss sich gegen seine stärkeren Brüder nicht verstecken! Klasse Abfüllung“

„Sehr leckerer leicht zu trinkener Rum, welcher aber trotzdem komplexe Aromen bietet. Mir hätte etwas mehr Power gut gefallen, wirkt vor allem hinten raus doch etwas dünn.“
