Why it’s different

This vertical tasting presents a unique series of millésime selected for their aromas and flavors from the Saint James barrel stock, a firm which has been making rum since 1884, choosing its 47% alcohol rums.

This journey through time to 1998, the year our oenologist made his Martinique debut, is also a chance to travel as far as the beginnings of AOC, which celebrated its 25th year in 2022, to the 250th anniversary of Saint James’s historic Trouvaillant plantations in 2015.

Concentrations bound up with ageing are expressed in the highly diverse colors of these rums, with young rums generally being lighter colored.

Millésime production conditions:
An initially rather difficult harvest followed by a favorable climate producing great yields.

Tasting Notes

A very intense nose whose woodiness harmonizes with its cinnamon, cocoa and very gentle fruit (fig, date) aromas.

A wide open, smooth mouth starting with mocha and chocolate followed by fig, baked fruit and candied fruit zest against a cinnamon and fern backdrop leading to a very long, gentle finish.
