Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is sooo fruity , pineapple and over ripe bananas. Very easy sipping at 59% .Lots of funk thats quite mellow , really enjoyable. With an aftertaste of honey.. I slightly prefer this to their Hampton 2011 , another brilliant Velier offering.
Distilled from estate molasses. Marque: WPL. Aged 10 years in Jamaica. Angel's share >64%. Bottled at 59% ABV (barrel proof). (Of course, all that info, and more, is right there on the bottle!)
I've sampled this a few times now, but still don't have tasting notes. I'll update this after I finally crack open my bottle. Suffice it to say this is a lot like its younger sibling (the 2005), but just a touch richer. There's a good amount of funk, that signature worthy park banana, lots of wood, and a delicious brown sugar/chocolate chip cookie note. Extremely moreish, and probably my favorite rum of 2018 :)
It is simply amazing, balanced, no soooo estered, but complex and tasty ... with very long finish.
This is very good rum. Much more balanced and somewhat mellowed compared to the Hampden 2010 . ( Which I like..) Long finish and slightly sweet in the mouth. Smaller sips showcase the flavors. I would totally recommend adding this bottle to the cabinet, while it’s still readily available.
