Not too bad a release but I did like the first one better. Still a pretty good rum and I like the balance of the wood, because it's not too dominant but completes the profile with fruit and spices. Lightly dry on the palate.

Sehr guter, etwas jung wirkender Agricole, bei dem etwas der Tiefgang fehlt.

Ce Saint James Éphémère numéro 7 est concentré sur un profil sombre et boisé, qu’on retrouve au nez avec des notes de fruits secs, du caramel et des notes torréfiées de café et de noix. Une fraîcheur florale est également perceptible. Au palais, on retrouve une trame très épicée et toastée, qui déroule les arômes avec beaucoup de douceur. Sec, rond et élégant, ce Saint James est légèrement plus chaud et unidimensionnel en finale, légèrement en deçà par rapport aux attentes sur ce type de profil. Plus discret et moins exubérant que le premier Éphémère, ce Saint James reste toutefois élégant, délicat et de très haute qualité, avec un prix défiant toute concurrence.

Für mich sehr enttäuschend. Hauptsächlich holzig, säuerlich, bitter und etwas harzig und modrig. Vor allem diese säuerliche Note ist für mich ein ziemlicher Abturn... Sorry.

A very good but not quite great Grand Cru agricole tropically aged 15 years. Tested side by side with the no.1 and it is a lot softer and much faster to dissipate in comparison. I even got a whiff of some classic rum caramel tones in this one. In a second tasting I notice that the standout agreeable note is honey (!) Overall a very good bottle but if you can get your hands on the no.1 without paying a fortune it is the better choice. Can’t wait for the 6 and the 5! Btw if confused by the naming it’s because it spells out 1765, the year Saint James was born 🙂.

Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass diejenigen, welche die No. 1 verkostet haben, von dieser No. 7 ziemlich enttäuscht sind. Ich war es jedenfalls. Dieser Rhum hat einfach nichts Besonderes, keinen Glanz, keine Eleganz. Aber vielleicht waren die Erwartungen nach der No. 1 einfach auch zu hoch gehängt. Auffällig ist, dass der Alkohol für meine Begriffe recht schlecht eingebunden ist. Fazit: Allenfalls was für Sammler der kompletten Serie 1-7-6-5, bei denen die Flasche geschlossen bleibt. Schade. 🥴 Der ebenfalls gerade erst erschienene, deutlich jüngere Clément (RX13504) läuft dem Saint James locker den Rang ab.

Ein guter Agricole… sein Vorgänger ist m. E. aber besser! Dieser ist nicht ganz so elegant und ausgewogen! Einzig sein Fruchtanteil ist gefälliger

Der Zweite im Bunde erscheint etwas leichter zu sein. Die Nase ist blumig, fruchtig, nussig, pflanzlich, würzig und erdig. Der Geschmack ist auch hier sehr komplex und von Frucht, Gewürzen, Blumen, Lakritze, Leder und etwas Karamell bestimmt. Der Abgang ist auch hier lang. Am Gaumen etwas gefälliger, bestimmt durch Gewürze, Karamell, Frucht, Pfeffer und etwas Süße. Auch dieser Rhum ist sehr komplex und eine tolle Abfüllung. Diese Abfüllung hat, für mich, leicht die Nase vorn, da er etwas weniger vol. Alkohol hat, weniger Zeit im Fass verbringen durfte und mit etwas mehr Süße daherkommt. Es sind aber nur leichte Nuancen, in denen sich diese Rhums unterscheiden.

Trop épicé pour moi.. Surtout dans le final.. Le n°1 est bien au dessus.. Pour moi..

En dessous de l’éphémère 1. Moins de gourmandise. Degusté a la soirée Rhum Club Paris (Hôtel Maison Mère)
