RUM FIRE 63%
Rum, Jamaica, 70cl, Ref: 57687
Profile: the powerful first nose is delicately tarry and characterized by notes of fermented exotic fruits (banana, pineapple) and burnt sugar cane juice. Mineral (slate), once allowed to breathe, it becomes medicinal (ointment), camphoric and rubbery. A few heady florals (dahlia) also fragrance the air. The lively yet creamy attack is extremely fruity (pineapple, banana) and herbaceous (savory, chervil, watercress). The mid-palate is like a bed of sugar cane placed directly on top of tarmac. The heady finish invites us to enjoy a lemon yoghurt. The expressive end of the finish admires unending fields of cane.

- Appearance : colourless
- Nose : rich, powerful. The delicately tarry first nose is characterized by notes of fermented exotic fruits (banana, pineapple, passion fruit) and burnt sugar cane juice. Mineral (slate), once allowed to breathe, it becomes medicinal (ointment, mustard seed), camphoric and rubbery. A few heady florals (iris, dahlia) gradually fragrance an atmosphere that, with lots of nuance, places sugar cane at the heart of the aromatic palette.
- Palate : lively yet creamy. The extremely fruity (pineapple, banana) attack also reveals a handful of essential oils (savory, chervil) and plants (watercress, rocket). The fibrous mid-palate is like a bed of sugar cane placed directly onto tarmac. The solar end of the palate is characterized by citrus fruit zest (lemon, grapefruit), new aromatic plants (sage, fennel, verbena) and spices (cumin, grey pepper).
- Overall : long, heady. Like a lemon yoghurt, the start of the finish is also vegetal, floral (lavender, rose) and fruity (William’s pear, Mirabelle plum). The rich and concentrated flavour palette admires a luxurious landscape in which sugar cane fields stretch into the distance. On the retro-nasal olfaction, cane flower and lime blossom honey gently coat the taste buds. The empty glass returns to the fermentary start of the tasting.
- 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.
The lineHabitation Velier est le fruit d’un long travail de recherche et d’éducation sur le rhum au cours des dernières décennies, joignant l’expérience de Velier au savoir-faire des meilleurs producteurs de rhum. Cette gamme de rhums blancs reprend les codes chers à la marque à savoir changer la perception des choses, de l’importance du vieillissement à l’importance de la distillation en pot still. Le but de la gamme Habitation Velier est principalement didactique : montrer les distillations artisanales aux différents marchés afin qu’ils comprennent la véritable phase décisive qui influence le style et la qualité.
