“A good VSOP, a rough smoky rum with smooth agricole notes. Again, similar to Guyana rum. In the mouth violently dry, woody, spicy and bitter. Round is different! In the finish mainly bitter chocolate with caramel. If you like young Agricoles, you get a lot for the price.”

“For a VSOP rum, this Saint James is an outstanding success. On the nose, we find the typical Saint James spirit, with its intense, elegant woodiness, dried fruit, lime, dark chocolate and smoky notes seasoned by spices (nutmeg, vanilla). Roundness and softness are the hallmarks of this olfactory profile. On the palate, the woodiness is felt alongside the spices, which are more present, notably pepper. Dried fruit and cocoa add an appreciable gourmet touch. An earthy edge emerges in the background. This is a lovely, easy-drinking rum with a touch of complexity. The finish, of decent length, gives way to sugarcane and a slight bitterness. Tobacco and toasty notes join oak and spice to complete the profile. A great reference for discovering agricultural rums, at a really low price.”
