Recommendable to most
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
Sweet notes, leathery oily aroma. Earthy and vegetal of fresh mushrooms. Boiled cane, fresh guava juice and fruit of sweet pineapple.
Earthy vegetal with sweet basil, with lots of mineral and oiliness. Rich banana compote.
Nutty, dried plum with cardamom.
Very much on nose compare to the tasting. Finishing was interesting as it has a different characteristics compare to nosing.
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.
