FLEUR DE CANNE A new vintage White Rum distinguishing itself by its aromas of " cane flower ". An accurate and requiring work was implemented(operated) by the cup in the bottling to obtain this unique product. Sugar cane was collected in May during the driest period to hold only the aromas of mature sugar cane (notes of vesou, honey, blossom of orange tree and pineapple jam, hammers) without the vegetable part. These delicate aromas were maintained during the fermentation and during the distillation thanks to a rigorous know-how supported by numerous tastings. A long period of preparation refined the product, in particular the slow reactions of estérification, to obtain a round agricultural white rum. The aromas of mature sugar cane 50% Vol 70Cl Available now
CUVEE 1765 Tribute to the creation of the Saint James brand, the Vintage 1765 is a subtle assembly of rums strictly selected and aged in small oak barrels. The tasting: Spicy notes of vanilla and cinnamon, associated with roasted notes and a fruity final. A grand rum with a unique character. A tribute to Saint James 42% Vol 70Cl 5 YO Available from April 2014
HORS D’AGE A blend of rums between 6 and 10 year old Over two centuries of experience and tradition are behind the subtle blending of carefully selected old rums. This rum spends between 6 and 10 years in oak casks of 180 litres capacity and is observed, checked and adjusted on a permanent basis by our cellar master. It reaches a level of perfection never equalled before. The tasting: NOSE: Predominantly woody with notes of cigar cellar & bracken Fruity notes: liqueur brandy fruit (prune), indicating long ageing in casks Notes of roasting (coffee, cocoa, moka,…) from the quality of the oak PALATE: Mellow, slightly sweet & heady initial taste Same range as present on the nose between fruitiness (prune, fig,…), roasting (moka, cocoa…), woodiness and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) Light notes of Rancio (typical of old Port) & Virginia tobacco (cigars) enhanced by airing in the mouth Exceptional length on the palate while retaining its aromatic complexity which slowly fades away The most refined of old rums. 43% Vol 70Cl 6-10 YO Available now
SAINT JAMES 7, 12, 15YO The Trilogy 43% Vol 70Cl Available from April 2014 The long ageing of St James rums in small barrels and of varying degrees of alcohol allows the rum to be specially extracted so they evolve over time and the slow gradual penetration of the rum within the staves so necessary for extraction. Over the years, the angel’s share takes away less and less alcohol with a finer extraction and increased concentration, so after seven years 35% evaporates from the initial volume in the barrels compared to 52% after 12 years and 60% after 15 years. The spicy notes evolve from cinnamon to nutmeg and West Indian bay tree, while at the same time the fruit becomes gradually sweeter and more stewed (prunes). The charred barrels bring sweet roasted notes (mocha) that become more toasted over time. The aromatic intensity is confirmed on the finish provided by the woody character, whose notes develop from the undergrowth to drier, more dominant aromas of fern and boxwood. The trilogy of St James old rums from 7 to 15 years (youngest aged rum for each category) is an opportunity to follow this aromatic development obtained through time-honoured methods and a great deal of patience.
