Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
One of those rare unaged (mostly) rums that I'd drink neat. The combo of Bajan clarity and Hampden funky esters reminds me of a nice white demerara in its body and sweetness. A lovely base for a cocktail, esp. a daquiri.
This is a very light straw colored rum. Has very little aroma to it but I was quite surprised at the pleasant flavor it has. Never expected anything good from a white rum, which I usually consider for mixing, but this one tastes pretty good as a sipping rum. Pretty smooth. 47% Alcohol, Coffey Still and Pot Still from Barbados.
Nice taste, full bodied. Good after taste. But quickly disappears. Light vegital, straw color.great blend!
47% ABV. A unique collaboration between Foursquare, Hampden, and Velier, Probitas (US; Veritas everywhere else) is a blend of 3 distillates: unaged Hampden pot-still, unaged Foursquare column-still, and some aged Foursquare pot-still.
Exceptional in a Daiquiri, this is still very nice on its own. It is confident and competent, yet delicate. A "white" rum with character and finesse—just a little more "oomph" than Royal Standard (43%, Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica). I have no doubt this bottle will become a staple on bar shelves across the world. A big thanks to all who saw this project to fruition.
Bottled at 47% it has a very light straw appearance. Aromas of light vegetal, citrus, sweet cane, pastry, exotic fruits.
Ceva special.. Prima dată nu mi-a plăcut dar... După 15 minute pe gheață lucrurile se schimbă radical.. Deosebit.. Pour le connoisseur..
When Vellier, Hampden & Foursquare collaborate to bring you a new blend of white rum you can bet ya it will be setting a new benchmark.
Veritas, or in the US named Probitas, is a blend of white rums of the Foursquare Distillery, Barbados, and Hampden, Jamaica. It’s a blend of three rums in all. Containing un-aged pot from Hampden. Un-aged from Foursquare’s twin column Coffey still and Foursquare’s aged pot still (2 years). There is no info on how much of each is in the blend however Mr. Seale in his usual cryptic way did disclose that there is “a lot of the un-aged and a little of the aged” in the blend.
Bottled at 47% it has a very light straw appearance. Aromas of light vegetal, citrus, sweet cane, pastry, exotic fruits. I love the aroma and can’t help myself to have a sniff every time I pass this bottle. You can easily drink this neat but it really is made for cocktails.
This is not a Jamaican funk high ester bomb. The notes are more subtle and in harmony with each other. Suggest you use this in classic spirit forward drinks. This makes an amazing Daiquiri.
