Poisson 2010 Velier Pere Labat / 70th Anniversary
An interesting, aged agricole rum from Marie Galante in Guadalupe. Agricole rum is distilled using only freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, as opposed to mollases.
Distilled in 2010 at the Distillerie Poisson, this is their Pere Labat rum and was bottled in February 2017 from casks #105 and #106 by Velier in celebration of their 70th anniversary.
Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.
