With the precious legacy of 20 years of AOC Martinique, L’Essential is an exceptional rum born from a scrupulous choice of the very best vintages blended by experts. A trilogy of rare, exceptional vintages from 1998, 2000 and 2003, this blend is the fruit of a subtle selection of Agricole rum earmarked from the still. Aged for over 12 long years in carefully selected small Bourbon casks, this rums has remained untouched until blending to preserve their rich expression intact.
Colour: Dark, dense mahogany.
Nose: Roasted notes of mocha and cocoa.
Palate: Fruit flavours on the palate of stone fruit, prunes and candied fruit. A woody, spicy finish with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and peeper running through. This unique offering is the perfect expression of Saint James Rum.
St James one of oldest and largest distilleriy in Martinique Island (Caribbean Island). It is a Saint-James slogan in honour of Martinique and it's simply the truth. Its story and taste highlight this island blessed with rum. Besides being a primordial part of Martinique's economy, Saint-James is also one of its cultural element. Every day, thanks to the media and its spirit of initiatives, Saint-James contributes to reading, singing and entertaining manifestations by sponsoring shows, traditional fairs and games. Martinique beats to Saint-James' tune, while it drinks the St James âAgricoleâ Rum. The AOC Rhum Agricole de la Martinique restricts production to the short best season for the cane to pack aromas, compels that all and only the fresh juice of the cane be used, contrary to 95% of the world rums using the left-overs (Molasses, stalks) of the sugar refining industry. Agricole Rum belongs to the world of cognac or Armagnac, whenever Traditional Rum (also known as Industrial) is in the grappa / pomace world.
