Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This was presented to me as a top quality and highly valued rum, but I was upset. Not my taste and too expensive for another try.
OK, it does NOT remind me of standard Mount Gay rums. It is big, odd, fruity, charred...And great. Love it.
From Mt. Gay distillery and named after Frank Ward the last owner before being sold to giant Remy Cointreau. 100% pot still , single blend rum bottled at an impressive 59%..
On the nose , cherries , lots of cherries.. oak , slight citrus note and spice. Tastes dry with predominantly cherry flavour which im not a fan of... bit of a burn but a nice warm mouth feel. Good exit , lasts a long time but does dry your mouth out unfortunately. Added a couple of drops of water which made it taste more like whisky..
Sorry but I just cant get past the cherries..
Enjoyed two glasses of Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 Rum while in San Francisco. High end bottle and label design. Golden color. Cherries and oak to your nose and palate. Surprisingly strong burn at the end being such a dry rum. Unique for sure. Not my cup of tea.
Distilled 2009, bottled in 2018. 59% ABV, straight from the cask. Barbados single rum.
n: so delicate compared to the Caroni alongside it. Cherry wine. Explodes onto the palate with cherry, apple cider, passion fruit. Not being a fan of cherry, I like it but I don't love it. Still, it is impressive.
