Now this is some good stuff
Ok I get the significance and history of this Worthy Park by Forsyths, but at the end of the day the product hast to be rated without other merits. I love the scent and initial taste, the burn is strong and over powering the lingering flavors in my book. Nice to have in my collection but at $90 Us I will choose some other rums.
A piece of history, considering it's the first destillation since 1962. It's quite good and it definitely has a strong taste, but not very complex. I'm glad I have tasted it, but I'm gonna struggle getting through a whole bottle of it
Velier has done it. I wish - WISH - Appleton would release their rums like this. Cask strength, no filtration. This is BEAUTIFUL. Almost cognac-like, but a Rum, of course. Rich, decadent notes of fruits. Amazing.
Bought a bottle of Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 2005 while vacationing in Martinique. Very nice and high end packaging, bottle and label design. Golden color. Traditional Jamaican funk complemented with citrus fruits and plenty of oak to the nose and palate. Strong and dry burn at the end.
57.8% ABV. Bananas, caramel, pepper. Amazing.
My tasting notes are sparse because I was having too much fun learning about and enjoying this rum. It's funky and refined. One of my absolute favorites. (If you can't get this one, seek out Worthy Park's own Single Estate Reserve—the "poor man's version" of this lovely rum.)
Complex yet elegant. So much going on from the beginning till the end.
Caramel, toffee, cigar box. Rich chocolate cookies with chocolate chips, ripe banana with candy floss, funky aroma of sour cherry schnapps.
Dark chocolate ganache with cigar box woodiness. Dried apricot, dried mango and fresh guava juice. Sour marinated papaya slice with Vinegar and sour plum.
Dry finish with tobacco and rich dark chocolate with sea salt, follow with Jamaican funk.
N- Warm honey sugar, red berries liquorice candy with oily caramel lurking. Dusty orange shack with mineral and salts coming thru. Not swimming too well, but stays at high notes all the way. (21/25)
P- Orange, ginger and more oranges, bitter citrus peel, tart and tar. Take each sip with care and absolutely no joke if to get choke up by this. (21/25)
F- Medium-long, sweet smokes rises, and again with more orange. (21/25)
Balanced:- Dominant with orange, tall and demanding. (21/25)
Weighted Rate:- 84pt
