Voller, runder Agricole mit ausgeprägter Holzreife und - für einen Agricole untypisch - mit roten Früchten wie Kirsche. Sehr gut integrierter Alkohol. Insgesamt sehr gut.

Toller Agricole. Schöner Fasseinfluss. Am Gaumen rote Früchte und schöne Würze.

Nez charmeur, avec une note de pruneau bien marquée, mais la bouche est moins réussie, le boisé est un peu astringent.

Lovely release and I especially like the flavours in the empty glass where the chocolate and spice stand out. Nice and intense nose and palate.

Oh, ist der gut! Sehr schöne Balance aus gelben Früchten und Fasseinfluss!

Schön hoher ABV. Das treibt die Aromen. Die Nase ist kräftig und intensiv. Holzig-würzig-fruchtig. Dabei ist das Holz mit einer feinen Holzsäure vordergründig. Dazu deutlich Essig und Pfeifentabak. Trotzdem kann ich eine ganz leichte Karamell-süße ausmachen. Die Frucht ist eher bei Kirsche und Dörrpflaume. An Gewürzen habe ich Kümmel und Backgewürz. Gaumen: auch schön intensiv. Angenehm holzig mit etwas Leder und Tabak. Es kommen wieder die Kirsche, die Dörrpflaume und die Traube durch. Hat dadurch etwas von Rotwein. Oh ja, alte Eiche übernimmt. Auch schön würzig ist er mit Lakritze und Piment und leicht Menthol. Im Abgang holzig und fruchtig, immer mehr ins Grasige gehend. Höhere % tun einem Agricole so gut. Mehr davon, auch wenn ich noch nicht ‚meinen‘ Agricole gefunden habe.

I am continuing my little St. James flight, and find this one a bit better than the 14yo variant I tried earlier. It is less herbal, but has more fruit (especially with some drops of water).

Bon Saint James. J'ai vraiment préféré le nez, très boisé mais aussi très gourmand. En bouche c'est bon, doux car l'alcool est super bien intégré. Marqué par le bois, peut être un poil trop. Sinon ce qui est dommage c'est le manque de longueur. Il passe tout de suite...

gefällt mir gut, kommt aber nicht ganz an die phänomenale Corman Collins 2002 Abfüllung heran.

Richtig geiler Saint James brut de fut! Überraschend wenig Holz und viel frische und Frucht!

Deutlich gereifter Agricole. Holzig, bitter, Tabak, aber auch deutlich dunkle, getrocknete Früchte. In der Nase milder wie am Gaumen. Im Abgang weiter deutliche Bitternoten und Gewürze. Nicht ganz rund, aber durchaus interessant.

En comparaison avec le 2001 V&B, plus représentatif des St James vieux à mon goût, l’alcool n’est cependant pas parfaitement maîtrisé.
