A beautiful 2001 vintage from superb Rhum Agricole producer Saint James, based in Martinique.
This rum has been aged for 10 years in a mixture of former Bourbon and Limousin oak barrels. The result is a well aged rum, packed with delightful tropical fruit flavours, followed by notes of pressed flowers, sweet cane, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, burnt sugar, chocolate, coffee, lime and coconut.A truly exceptional Rhum Agricole, that the connoisseurs will really enjoy.
ABOUT SAINT JAMES
Saint James Rum was founded in Saint-Pierre de la Martinique in 1765, at the hands of Reverend Father Edmund Lefebure who also happened to be a rather skilled alchemist. The priest crafted a cane spirit, and began shipping the rum to British colonies in North America. He named the rum Saint Jacques as a tribute to Jacques Dyel, which later became known as Saint James in order to sound more familiar to English speakers.
