11 Saint James Reserve Privee 12-Year ratings

Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

Beautiful amber color with clingy legs, running slowly down the glass, after a swirl. The nose is very fruity with ripe, black grapes and prunes, a hint of dark chocolate and a slightly rubbery character. Love it. Reminds me a bit of red wine. Sipping it, I pick up grassy notes of grapes, chocolate and a bit of roasted coffee beans and oak. A very fresh and "juicy" taste. The dryness on the finish is gentler then most french rum, and I find this a very good introduction to agricole.

Having 43% of alcohol the rum stands out of the line for the first time. The rum is light brown, the aroma when nosing being dominated plums and roasted coffee plus for me an unidentified fresh grassy aroma, sending my thoughts somewhere in the sugarcane fields. On the lips is then slightly aggressive, then smooth with a pleasant throat.

After tasting another agricole rums the same day, I came to the understanding that the strange grassy aroma is typical for all agricole rums, and thus these rums found a way into my rum-heart.


Sous ses beaux reflets bruns cuivrés, issue de son très long séjour en fûts, il libère des notes dominantes de boisé associées à des saveurs plus subtiles, et révèle ses arômes puissants de fruits à noyaux (pruneau), fruits secs et d’épices (muscade) ainsi qu’une délicate touche torréfiée.

Notes de dégustation du Maitre de Chai Saint James

Le 12 ans s'ouvre sur un boisé dominant et fondu par le temps de contact du fût, se répercutant sur la qualité aromatique par une concentration du produit.
Les notes de sous-bois et de torréfaction (café, grillé) s'accompagnent d'épices plus marquées comme la muscade pour progressivement laisser place à des notes plus suaves de canelle et de pruneaux.
En bouche, les tanins bien présents et fondus apportent de la longueur pour les arômes avec une note finale de torréfaction.


Attacco quasi agrumato, prugna, leggermente balsamico, spezie dolci.
In bocca si conferma. Non dolce (ed è un plus per me).
Finale di mandorla e legno, non particolarmente lungo né così piacevole.


Very spicey and woody. But much fruit taste. I think it is perfect with a cigarr


Aroma with plums and some tropical fruit reminding plum brandy
Intense flavour of plums with touch of coffee and with oaky and tobacco finish

..secon tasting was even better.

C'est un de mes rhums favoris: j'adore les notes de fruits secs!

Les bouteilles ne ressemblent plus à celle de la photo; ce sont des bouteilles transparentes semblables au 7 ou 15 ans d'âge.


Un bon rhum agricole avec un goût boisé intéressant.


Un côté boisé qui accompagne la douceur de ce très bon rhum vieux de Martinique.


Not remarkable but good agricola aged rum. I drank it in bathtub and smoke. Can't tell much about it...


A very good agricole, full of flavor and smooth, easy to sip and makes a great punch vieux.
