Velier bottles some of the best heavy rums, and though they are expensive, I still think the prices are within reason. The newly released vintage 1999 is bloody good, and in my book surpasses the earlier released 1996 vintage. It's "only" 53,1% vol, but distilled in a metal coffey still and then aged for 15 years in newly charred oak barrels, which have brought great complexity. This dense dark liquid, which have had an angel share of 72%, is just amasing and overall the whole rum feels better rounded then the previous diamonds.
The nose is a thing of beauty. It's very full, intense and rounded at the same time, with notes of ripe plums, charred wood, raisins and caramel. The composure almost has an omami like character to it. The palette is intense and opens with the newly charred wooden notes and ripe plum, followed by soft caramel, vanilla and a note actually reminiscent of flavourfull smoked and glaced ham, that hangs on for quite a while. Exceptional. (9,5)

I have tasted this one during an event in Spa in Belgium and I have kept a good keepsake of it.

Another outstanding rum from Velier.
Lighter in terms of %vol, but just as full of flavour!

Rum stupendo uno dei più buoni mai assaggiati. Al naso si sente subito un marcato sentore di legno affumuicato, banana matura, prugna secca. In bocca arriva subito l'alcool che l'ascia subito il posto a sentori di mela, prugna e tabacco. Ottimo finale di liquirizia e una sensazione di balsamico. Promosso a pieni voti.

Mørkere end 96'eren. Trods lavere alkohol, virker den endnu mere aromafyldt. Bred palette;fra chokolade og kaffe til bananer og citrus. Himmelsk.

denne rom er utrolig spændende, og muligvis den rom jeg har smagt med størst palette.
duft: sherry, citrus
smag: fad, kaffe, brandthed, chokolade, citrus, beef, sødme. disse noter komplimenterer hinanden og optræder ikke alle på samme tid.
kraftig lækker eftersmag.
