Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : incolore, peu filtrée.
  • Nose : ample, riche. Le premier nez possède un caractère automnal (truffe, mousse) et herbacé. Médicinal (camphre) et iodé, il développe des notes d’hydrocarbures qui convergent vers la tourbe. Des parfums de sucre de canne arrivent progressivement sur le devant de la scène. Capiteux, il ne cesse de monter en puissance tout en restant très aérien.
  • Palate : nette, suave. L’attaque en bouche propose à son tour des saveurs tertiaires (champignons, lichen) ainsi que des fruits secs (datte, figue). Le milieu de bouche se montre plus herbacé et mentholé. Avec beaucoup de fraîcheur, la fin de bouche évolue vers un registre plus exotique (ananas rôti, mangue) et plus sucré.
  • Overall : longue, ferme. Dans un premier temps, terreuse et épicée (gingembre), elle s’affine au fil du temps pour devenir florale (iris, géranium) et légèrement chocolatée. La canne à sucre domine la fin de bouche. La rétro olfaction est d’une fraîcheur remarquable et le verre vide est délicieusement poudré (cacao, gingembre).
The brand

The brand

Traditional Haiti ! These highly artisanal eaux-de-vie, similar to white agricole rums, have long been the most popular drink in the remotest, poorest regions of Haiti. Bottled at natural strength, these three bottlings come from three different distilleries but have aspects in common: pure, well balanced alcohols capable of evolving interestingly and expressively in the glass. The Brazilian have cachaça, the Haitian have clairin!

Merchant

The Velier company was founded by the Chaix family in 1947. From 1953 to 1983, this small traditional company, located in the port of Gênes, specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, then aged 25, Luca Gargano acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began specialising in the importation of exceptional spirits to be supplied to the most prestigious establishments in Italy. In the early 1990s, Luca Gargano heard rumours of a mythical, quasi-legendary stock of St James Rum that had supposedly been distilled at the end of the 19th century. Eventually he discovered proof that this stock, distilled in 1885 and bottled in 1952, did indeed exist. And in 1991, following lengthy discussions, Luca finally managed to acquire the entirety of this stock, which he then released on the Italian market. These selections of rums have since multiplied and led to the birth of exceptional ranges.
