Un Saint James au rapport qualité / prix très intéressant. Le nez est expressif, oscillant entre les notes fruitées et végétales (canne à sucre), un soupçon d’herbes et d’épices et un boisé très élégant pour son âge. Les épices et le bois prennent le dessus en bouche, mais le côté terreux et légèrement toasté n’est pas loin derrière. L’ensemble est doux, léger mais assez complexe pour un XO. La finale est un peu plus courte et dominée par les épices et le bois. Une solide bouteille d’entrée de gamme pour les rhums agricoles, en particulier dans la catégorie XO.

Very good agricole. Lacks in complexity.

Die Nase liegt schwer in fruchtigen Noten mit etwas Zuckerrohr/Karamell und Schokolade. Die Nase wirkt runder und sanfter im Vergleich zu den jüngeren Rums von Saint James, da die Zitrusfrucht und das Rauchige schwächer ist. Im Mund dann wieder trocken und würzig (typisch Agricole), wobei Frucht und Karamell hängen bleiben. Insgesamt auch hier etwas geschmeidiger. Mir gefällt vor allem die Frucht und Schokolade.

Deutlich balancierter als der VSOP. Frucht kommt besser durch. Viel Zuckerrohr und auch erdige Noten und etwas karamellige Süße am Gaumen. Mit trockenem Finish, sehr ordentliche Agricole Standard Qualität.

Un nez qui m’a énormément deplu et boisé trop présent. Vraiment pas une réussite.
