Tasting note

  • Appearance : carmin à reflets acajou.
  • Nose : supérieur d’élégance. Le premier nez est étonnant. Tout d’abord par l’abondance de fruits rouges (fraise, framboise, cerise) qu’il dévoile. Capiteux (pivoine), il est également précieusement boisé. Sa beauté et sa luxuriance évoquent une liqueur suprême. Vineux (porto vintage), il évolue sur le pain d’épices, la réglisse et les noix grillées. Puis son caractère végétal se met progressivement en place.
  • Palate : à la fois onctueuse et vive. Son attaque poudrée (cacao) et ses amers évoquent un vermouth de grande lignée. Le milieu de bouche révèle des agrumes (orange), des fruits exotiques (goyave, grenade), mûrs (pêche blanche) et des épices (gingembre confit). Sa minéralité le fait évoluer vers des notes d’agave, de musc et de fruits secs (abricot, amande).
  • Overall : longue, reposée. Sa générosité est telle qu’elle conserve intacte pendant longtemps la sensation de plénitude que la bouche procurait. À vrai dire, elle n’en finit pas de surprendre par son authenticité et sa profondeur. De fruits noirs (cassis) côtoient des abricots confits et des notes de torréfaction. La rétro-olfaction est marquée par la figue et la toile émeri, et le verre vide est floral (géranium) et exotique (mangue).
The brand

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.
