This expression is a blend of rums between six and 10 years of age, with a dark amber color typical of older Saint James varieties.
It has an aroma of bourbon and caramel, and a remarkably varied flavor profile of orange peel, spice, flowers and even a bit of chartreuse. The finish has notes of licorice and black pepper.
Typical of a Saint James, this has a luxurious, velvety texture and a wonderful balance of sweetness and strength.
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.
