Saint James Rum Reserve 0,7 l
Saint James Rum Reserve is a carefully blended reserve, extra old Rum with a high share of delicate fruit and elegant vanilla
The subtle aroma of the premium Saint James Rum Reserve is of one hundred percent pure sugar cane juice, which is why this specialty Rum is also referred to as Rum Agricole and is classified as particularly fruity.
The excellent geographic location of the Saint James sugar cane plantations, the proximity to the Equator, and the warm tropical climate, offer not only optimum conditions for growing and extracting quality sugar cane but also creates the unique taste which characterizes the popular Saint James Rum. The distillery still owns over 300 hectares of sugar cane plantations.
The dark and amber-like color of the affordable Saint James Rum Reserve is reminiscent of a strong and massive Rum. Rum connoisseurs especially appreciate the fruity fresh and mild finish.
Different regions in the Caribbean have a balanced and coordinated relationship of a mixing Rum with a slightly woody note - a true blended Rum emerges through its multiannual maturity process and the composition of the various Rum varieties.
All the areas have their own signature taste. Especially high level of Jamaican Rum, dry and at the same time fruity nuance from Barbados, fresh sea air all around Martinique as well as the unique flavor subtleties of Guadeloupe and Trinidad refine this unusual Rum, forming a superb taste composition.
St James is one of the oldest distilleries in Martinique Island in the Caribbean and one of 14 distilleries that create the Rum Agricole. St James was born in 1765 at the convent Brother of Charity where Father Edmond Lefebure developed a high-quality white alcohol in secret.
The quality Saint James Rum Reserve is matured in oak barrels, which gives the Rum a harmonious vanilla scent as well as gives an impression of the tropical zone.
The taste of mild spices, a classic sweetness and a hint of ripe bananas brings the Caribbean Islands closer to the connoisseurs. This interaction offers a great deal of room to manoeuvre, for example for the Caramel Antillais, a favorite amongst cocktail lovers:
- 3 cl. Saint James Rum
- 8. cl banana nectar and
- 1.5 cl. caramel syrup
The combination of these three delicious ingredients and the added crushed ice promise a refreshing summer drink around the grill or cozy evenings with friends.
To summarize, the medium-bodied Saint James Rum Reserve is ideal as a beginners Rum reflecting the taste of fruit and vanilla and its special aroma due to the large proportion of Jamaican Rum.
The slight hint of ripe banana makes this blended Rum ideal for mixing cocktails and a favorite long drink but can also be enjoyed pure or on ice. An outstanding aromatic Rum which amazes, not only in Martinique!
