Last one of my little St. James flight, I like this one the most. It is rare I find an aged Agricole still being fruity, herbal and woody. This has it all. However, it is quite intense, and most definitely needs time to appreciate - do not sip it lazily by the side.

Saint James en a sous le capot. À mon avis c’est que le début de la premiumisation de la marque.

Tatsächlich einen Hauch besser als der Les Ephemeres. Schön stark und wild. Könnte Ich für immer trinken

This is a very dry rum and it's very obvious that it's been made in French oak.

Un rhum exigeant, un peu sombre mais loin d'être mauvais.

Erneut ein hervorragender Agricole! Neben viel Holz kommen hier auch die grasig kräuterigen Aromen deutlich zum Vorschein! Der Abgang ist recht lang und intensiv… die hochprozentigen Saint James haben einen neuen Fan…so macht Agricole richtig Spaß

17. Tag im Weihnachtskalender. Blind! Ganz klar Agricole, ganz klar Martinique, der Rest ist Feintuning 😉 Nase: kräftig-würzig und trotzdem frisch und fruchtig. Der Alkohol beißt zum Anfang ein wenig. Klar holzig. Aber sehr deutlich das grasiges Zuckerrohr. Dunkle Früchte und Zitrone mit Brombeere, trockene Rosine. Etwas rauchig, Tabak, erdig, Schwarzer Pfeffer mit einem Hauch Vanille, etwas Säure, wie bei Rotwein. Gaumen: würzig, Zuckerrohrsaft, leicht Orangeat, süß-grasig, hinten Haselnuss, erdig, Wurzel, Tabak Im Abgang Heu, Zuckerrohr und Lakritz. Ein wunderbarer Vertreter Martiniques!

Ich war gespannt, ein St. James mit richtig hohem ABV level, und ich finde das ‚Experiment‘ durchaus gelungen. Er braucht allerdings einiges an Standzeit, um sich zu öffnen, dann kommen jedoch schöne Gewürznoten wie Piment, Gewürznelke Vanille, auch Schokolade und Gras. Der Gaumen gefällt ebenfalls, der Alkohol ist gut integriert, es kommen Gewürze, Holz, Pfeffer. Im Abgang Heu, und eine röstig-schokoladige Note.

J'ai entendu et Lu des choses très différentes sur ce rhum. Et bien je dois dire que je me rangé dans le camp de ceux qui l'ont apprécié. C'est complexe, complet et franchement super bon. Oui l'alcool est présent, mais malgré sa puissance, ce rhum à un coté doux. Super jus.

Superbe. Très surprenant Au nez, on sent le boisé mais ça reste léger. On sent bien le cognac. Bouche, pareil, avec le cognac qui prend bien le dessus, délicieux. Alcool très bien intégré, surtout après aération de 15/20 mins Très belle longueur 😍😍😍
