Tasty, but not quite great
If you like agricole, you get a lot of the good stuff in this bottle at a decent price. The rum sports a redish amber color and treats your nose with grass, crushed black grapes and vanilla. Not very complex but very nice in all it’s simplicity. In the mouth the crushed black grapes and grass is complimented by rounded wet wooden notes with a lovely hint of bitterness. A very approchable, decently balanced and nice agricole with spices and vanilla on the finish. What I like about Saint James in general is that it seems to be slightly less dry than other brands from martinique.
Got a bottle of Saint James Reserve Privee 7y from a local grocery store on my last night here at CDMX. Bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Dark golden color. Strong alcohol from the sugarcane method and super dry notes to your nose and palate. Quite a strong burn at the end.
Rhum de 7 ans d'âge, bouteille typique "St James" et présentation dans un coffret bois, titre : 43°.
Belle robe acajou
Nez riche, épicé.
Goût : assez particulier en attaque, avec un goût de fruits mûrs, ensuite viennent des notes de boisé et de café.
Finale : longue, goût de canne.
Un rhum plaisant à la dégustation mais autant viser le 12 ans, qui est un cran au-dessus.
Good rum, which smells very good, Sweet an woody and spicey in the nose and eyes! Taste is a bit spicey but a bit sweet taste on the tongue.
A good one
