“A Saint James offering very good value for money. The nose is expressive, oscillating between fruity and vegetal notes (sugar cane), a hint of herbs and spices and a very elegant woodiness for its age. Spice and wood take center stage on the palate, but the earthy, slightly toasty side is not far behind. The whole is soft, light but quite complex for an XO. The finish is a little shorter, dominated by spice and wood. A solid entry-level bottle for agricultural rums, especially in the XO category.”

“This is a light version of the older brothers. Fruity with a nice caramel hint in the profile. Lightly dry on the palate and the empty glass has some chocolate and a light smoky note.”
