“Smooth, balanced rum with hints of nuts and subtle spices.”

The "Sélection exclusive Velier" is a distinct rum crafted in Martinique at the Saint James distillery.

With an ABV of 47%, this rum delivers an intriguing blend of flavors and aromas. The smell encompasses woody, flowery, vanilla, herbal, and roasted notes, while the taste consists of woody, roasted, grass, dry, and bitter elements. RumX users expressed mixed opinions, as some appreciated its powerful agricole character and balanced drinkability, while others found an unwelcome soap-like essence in the rum. Be prepared to encounter an extraordinary rum with a unique sensory experience.

“The DNA of the series remains recognizable, in addition, a sweet mango note as well as light sulfur appears in the nose - extraordinary and still quite interesting. Unfortunately, the tide turns fundamentally in the mouth - it becomes soapy-floral. Although the basic profile remains recognizable, it is too clearly overlaid by the aforementioned off-notes in my perception. Unsurprisingly, no other picture emerges on the palate - thus unfortunately disappointing.”

“Wieder Eiche, erdig, sehr trocken. Und dann - diesmal zurückhaltend - die parfümierte Seife. Im Mund prickelnd und langer, guter Abgang. Intensive Zitrusfrüchte. Ausgewogen, gute Trinkstärke. Von oben (2015) runter verkostet bis jetzt der Beste.”
