SAINT JAMES ROYAL AMBRÉ
STYLE: RHUM AGRICOLE
Much like Islay whiskies or IPAs, agricole rhums are an acquired taste, and this Saint James sets the taste buds alight with a rubbery, fruit sweetness. As per its AOC rules, there is no sugar, colour or other additives, just a bracing palate that delivers an onslaught of funk, jackfruit and soursop. It’s over all too soon given the initial avalanche of flavour, but like the first time on skis you’re queuing for the lift to do it all over again.
