Tasting note

  • Appearance : orange à reflets acajou et verdâtres.
  • Nose : D’une fraîcheur exceptionnelle où l’on discerne l’orange sanguine, l’abricot, la groseille à maquereau et le raisin noir. Evolue sur les épices, le camphre, les fleurs capiteuses (chèvrefeuille, lys), la confiture de mangue et le chêne merrain.
  • Palate : D’une fermeté insensée, sa minéralité est multiple : toile émeri, pierre ponce, roche. Le gris ardoise est sa couleur préférée. Elle se teinte de tons cuivrés et orangés. De ce duo coloré naissent deux équilibres bien distincts et quasi parfaits : acidité/sucres et amers/sels.
  • Overall : D’une onctuosité phénoménale. Les fruits exotiques (kumbava, goyave, mangue) sont au maximum de leur maturité. Une fine couche de caramel sert de liant tandis qu’une douce amertume apporte salinité et éclat. La rétro olfaction est abondamment fruitée et le verre vide renferme toute la palette aromatique et gustative.
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.
