Very good as a sipper though in small amounts. It makes quite the statement!

The Extra Old is no slouch, either.

Thank you for the compliment RonJames, but there are others on our forum that I would consider an authority. I am just an educated consumer!

Try these goys. They have the Neissons and will ship free for orders over $100.00.

Rumdog, thanks for that link. I just had a moment so peruse the site and noticed they do ship to Canada, which is sometimes hard to find. I'll get dinged on shipping and various taxes but good to know if I'm need of a 'special treat'.

Thanks!

I have read over on Tiki Central that St. James will no longer be imported to the USA, according to Jeff Berry (AKA, The Beachbum). Anyone else heard this?

St James is still available in Texas as of Christmastime, and was the first Rhum Agricole I ever tried. The Royal Ambre I like as a mixer and a sipper, even though it has a vaguely agavelike flavor to it.

The only other Rhum Agricoles I can recall seeing here in Texas are Rhum Clement and Depaz. I've had the Clement VSOP (nice sipper).

I was told that by the distillery a few years ago. But the importer's rep told me emphatically that that wasn't true. Seems there's a bit of a communication problem here and there.

We used to carry St. James, and it is still available to us, but since I have Neisson, La Favorite, and Rhum J.M. (and I'm awaiting another Martinique Rhum Agricole that I'm told is on the way to me this year) I don't feel a pressing need to carry St. James any longer.

Nothing wrong with it, you understand, it's just a matter of shelf-space, and the three that we have right now are more interesting to me personally.
