This is NOT an agricole as has been suggested but a Jamaican single pot still rum, pretty high in esters. While this is a great rum, I was unimpressed when compared to i.e. Velier’s Hampden expressions since the price is nearly double that.

Nose of unmistakable Jamaican funk with oak, leather, banana and pineapple.

On the palate it reveals having been through a good aging process, with subtle spice and balanced oak before the funky baseline kicks in with toast, citrus, banana and pineapple. It is a bit subdued though, and slightly disappointing, since little more than discretion seems to come out of the long ageing. An interesting briny, spicy character fails in really coming through.

Aftertaste with leather, fruit and tobacco.

Pleasant and top quality, but there are more bang for the buck elsewhere. It should therefore be noted that price is an important factor in my rating. Obviously this is a way better product than certain rums I have granted 7 or even 8 but factoring the cost it does not deserve top ratings.

Enjoyed a bottle of Forsyths 11y 2006 Edition Habitation Velier with my friend during a vacation. Unique bottle and label design. Light golden color. Traditional grassy Rhum Agricole mixed with plenty of oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Long and dry burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.

Strong and boozy as it should, with depth and complexity. Some vanilla and maybe almonds.... A huge rum!
