Recommendable to most
i bought this rum about two years and forgot it was in my collection. After pouring it in a glass neat, you can smell the strong aroma of sweet plantain, Guava, pineapple, passion fruit, and classic jamaican funkiness. The taste starts with subtle hints of coconut, no vegetal or grassy notes at all, more tropical fruit, sugar cane sweetness, and heat that fades into a smoothness that lingers and coats the throat. This is probably the best white rum ive ever tasted. The higher ABV% has kick but its not harsh. Its actually refreshingly smooth. Its great as a mixer or a sipper. I made a freshly squeeze mango infused tiki style cocktail with it and it was delicious.
Tak toto je ďalší môj obľúbený biely rum. Krásna sila 57%, naozaj plno esterov a prenikava vôňa. Človek si ho vychutna a cíti funky s tónmi ovocia. Odporúčam každému milovnikovi bielych rumov.
A tremendous white rum. The nose speaks volumes! Loud banana, cane, and stone fruit. Palate is allspice, papaya, banana, and sweet tea.
Another from the Habitation Velier line?... After my first try with the Foursquare take, I was expecting good things. First sip. Yikes. Program error. What is this? I thought I had made a mistake. It says White?? But what do I know about white? Cheap American grocery grades like Bacardi and the overproof mixing stalwarts like Wray and Nephew are all I have known. But I wanted to try another HV.
This was sweet, but somehow off, like moldy fruit notes with an almost putrid heaviness, but no oak or similar wood character to steady you with vanilla or toast on the exhale as I seek in a darker gem. The funkiness combined with the 57% alcohol forward in the mouth was shocking, I almost couldn't take it. But waste not want not, especially in Stay At Home lockdown!
I decided to mix with it. On about the third or fourth session, hanging in a mixture with other familiar tastes, I started to slowly hear its voice. And then a bomb went off.
Went back to sipping. Whoa. Banana bread in a dewy sweet field of grass on the nose under the hard vapor. Indeterminate esters on the tongue, heavy at first give to a tiny anise presence, hint of shortbread and a long breath of more banana and leather. A bit of persimmon flesh and cherry wood added to the banana on the glass. Excellent.
Took me into territory I am too new to this game to appreciate. But I do now.
Listen carefully my friend, don't be fooled by other good ratings. If you're really in to rums, this is not a rum. This is a very tasty good moonshine, as simple and strong as it should be. It's completely overpriced cause you can have absolutely the same taste from say ole's moonshine for twice as cheap.
It's absolutely not worth a buy unless you don't know what to do with your money.
Bottle design is neat, I have to admit it. I'm still going to try somehting else from that distillery, but that one is not recommended at all.
The strength on the nose of this is brutal however the taste is what a white rum should taste like strong on the grass and caramel smell ...pot still beautiful.. would I pay a lot for a bottle no but would I sample for something different from a rum most definitely
Bought a bottle of Forsyths WP 502 Rum on a sunny Saturday. Pretty nice bottle and label design. Light golden color. Super strong alcohol mixed with artificial banana flavored rubber and a massive amount of moldy funk to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. I'm sure this is what rat poison tastes like.
"A little “refined” especially in the finish ,some nice oaked notes."
