Truly a fantastic choice
First of all I didn’t know what to expect from this one. The sample was number 8 in a tasting that i ordered. When is smelled it for the first time my mind went crazy. Fresh lemons and oranges. Hundreds of them lying in the sun. The taste is pure and complex but still very drinkable. The price of this bottle is only 60 euro. Just buy it, you wont regret it!
The nosing reveals oranges , pecans ,cherry's chocolates and apples .
The taste is quite dry with the hit of more nuts maybe a macadamia nut , the moves into a delicate dunder
and with a finish of olive oil ...
This is an incredible pit still ...62.5% boom 🤯
Kristallklar im Glas.
In der Nase wird der Riechkolben von einem wahren Duft-Tsunami überflutet. Es werden Bilder von Zuckerrohr Felder, Frucht Plantagen und Gewürz Gärten im Gehirn erzeugt. Irgendwie unbeschreiblich lecker und im steten Wandel.
Am Gaumen sind die 62.5 % Alkohol den Geschmacksknospen gegenüber sehr gnädig und motivieren sie elegant und liebevoll sich voll auf ihre Arbeit zu konzentrieren. Das müssen sie auch bei dieser Aromen Dichte (350 gr/hlpa). Frisch-fruchtig-grasige Aromen bilden einen soliden Sockel mit hunderten von zu entdeckt werden wollenden Überraschungen.
Im Abgang langlebig und sehr aromatisch und es wird klar wie guter Rum schmecken muss.
Ein weiterer weisser Velier "high proof - high ester" Rum, der absolut genial ist. Welchen Rum kann ich danach noch trinken um so etwas toppen ? Für Liebhaber dieser Art, Entdecker, Geniesser und Experten.
Crystal clear in glass.
In the nose, the olfactory bulb is flooded with a veritable tsunami of fragrance. Images of sugar cane fields, fruit plantations and spice gardens are created in the brain. Somehow indescribably delicious and in constant change.
On the palate, the 62.5% alcohol is very gracious to the taste buds and motivates them to concentrate fully on their work, elegantly and lovingly. This is what they have to do even with this density of aromas (350 gr/hlpa). Fresh, fruity and grassy aromas form a solid base with hundreds of surprises to be discovered.
Long-lasting and very aromatic on the finish, it becomes clear how good rum has to taste.
Another white Velier "high proof - high ester" rum, which is absolutely brilliant. Which rum can I drink afterwards to top this ? For lovers of this kind of rum, discoverers, connoisseurs and experts.
Habitation Velier, the brand that doesn't insult your intelligence. An example how rum should be presented for consumers.
The first smell gave my a ridiculous smile. This is intense and crazy! On the nose it's actually enjoyable. Buttered popcorn jelly beans meet window polish meets sheep farm. But the palate is harsh.
Its unique aroma haunts my mind. I get repeated flashbacks.
An educational comparison with its aged brother LROK 2010.
This is the young unaged version of the Hampden LROK 6 Years. The label tells us about 350gr/hlpa of esters and a threatening 62,5% abv. Distilled and bottled in 2018 this rum has never seen a wooden cask but probably spent a few months in steel tanks.
In the glass you get a fruity and heavy flowery punch on your nose. I smell prunes and pears, old apples but also overripe tropical fruits. It's like a walk in the countryside in late summer when the ripened fruits are falling from the trees and start rotting on the ground, filling the air with sweet and heavy aromas and the bees and wasps are feasting on them. In the back there's a faint hint of sundried seafood and algaes.
In the mouth it behaves surprisingly civilized, offers a refreshing sweetness and underlines the fruity hints given in the nose. I'm very much reminded of southern German fruit brandies, pear, prune, greengage...you name it, although those give a much stronger burn at only 40% abv. Sunchoke with banana peel, fruits and Turk's cap lily...very complex for such a young fellow! Not for everybody, but a very interesting expression of a Hampden Mark that I never had the chance before to try.
Make a Daiquiri you will remember!
