Now this is some good stuff
Distilled from estate molasses. Marque: WPL. Aged 10 years in Jamaica. Angel's share >64%. Bottled at 59% ABV (barrel proof). (Of course, all that info, and more, is right there on the bottle!)
I've sampled this a few times now, but still don't have tasting notes. I'll update this after I finally crack open my bottle. Suffice it to say this is a lot like its younger sibling (the 2005), but just a touch richer. There's a good amount of funk, that signature worthy park banana, lots of wood, and a delicious brown sugar/chocolate chip cookie note. Extremely moreish, and probably my favorite rum of 2018 :)
Really lovely. Amazingly complex yet balanced... I feel very lucky to have been able get a bottle so late after the release (thanks TWE).
This rum is intense and flavorful in every Way. Deep bourbon and oak flavors layer with a strongly intense Jamaican funk. Layered flavor in every way. Exceptional
This is sooo fruity , pineapple and over ripe bananas. Very easy sipping at 59% .Lots of funk thats quite mellow , really enjoyable. With an aftertaste of honey.. I slightly prefer this to their Hampton 2011 , another brilliant Velier offering.
Aroma is smoothed and nicely fruity. Taste is explosion ! Fruity, full, kicked by higher level of alcohol. Long pleasant aftertaste. Like boosted Foursquare 2008 :-)
Powerful with amazing smell and flavours. The best Jamaica rum I've tried :) but Forythes 2006 WPM is almost as good and also Veliers Hampden rums are close. The Monymusk 2010 EMB is the one I like the least. This rum is for small sips, I usually let it be in the mouth for a while mixing it with some saliva. Soooo fruity and 59% is just perfect! Maybe not for a beginner in rum but for someone who wants to drink the real deal. A masterpiece!
This WPHV 2007 absolutely fits for purpose from my point of view, slightly better than FWP 2005. The color of rum is rich dark/golden. Complex aroma inside, more with notes of dried fruit more pinnaple and piece of coconut, caramel heavy. Taste a bit stronger, elegant, of great depth.. Rum contains 59% of alcohol 😎
This is hands down a fantastic rum. The nose is potent and complex but more well behaved then fx. overproof hampden. Notes of black tea, mashed banana and pineapple, toffee and bergamot fill’s the nostrils. Sipping it is in no way a dull affair, but it’s still very drinkable for an overproof Jamaican. Notes of spicy barrel, mashed banana and black tea comes on strongly. The finish is very rich and long fading from oak to some lingering dark chocolate and pineapple sweetness. Completely satisfying and very well balanced.
"Sipped at the full ABV it is full of flavour – very spicy with lots of lemon and orange zest."
