Saint James 15 Years Old 70cl 43°
Aged 15 years under the tropical climate of the island of Martinique, this agricultural rum is a classic of Saint James distillery. The angels' share is 60% (the part evaporated from the original rum from the beginning of maturation) and defines a concentration of aromas very powerful.
Its notes of precious wood come from the care brought to aging. We feel the presence of spices, tobacco and cooked fruits. The mocha finish brings an elegant complexity and balance that enhances this rum.
The distillery of Saint James was born in 1765, at the foot of the peeled mountain, on the island of Martinique (St Marie). It is the most important producer of agricultural rum of the island, but also the most famous , even owning a rum museum.
Located on the heights of St Pierre in the 18th century, it was transferred to Sainte Marie following the eruption of the volcano of the peeled mountain, which charred the entire sugar cane fields, except for a part: those of the St James plantation.
Still active today, it would produce around 3 million liters of rum a year, making this distillery the largest producer of agricultural rum on the island.
