Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé.
  • Nose : racé, élégant. Plein de vivacité (citron, pamplemousse), il demande à être amadoué par petits coups de nez successifs. On découvre alors non seulement des noix fraîches, de la vanille, du camphre, du citron vert et des pêches abricotées, mais aussi, et surtout une finesse d’expression absolument remarquable.
  • Palate : ample, tendue. Des épices (poivre, muscade, girofle) procurent à son attaque une sensation aérienne très agréable. Des fruits secs (cajou, amande, datte) occupent un milieu de bouche onctueux et crémeux (caramel au beurre salé). La fin de bouche est capiteuse (concrète d’iris, chèvrefeuille).
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. Avec beaucoup de maturité, elle propose des notes de tabac, de champignons et de lichen. Puis, balsamique (cèdre, cyprès), elle gagne en fraîcheur (gazon, luzerne). La rétro olfaction est champêtre (pâturage, pissenlit) et le verre vide est capiteux et intensément épicé.
The brand


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.
