Kristallklar im Glas.
In der Nase einfach unglaublich, schon beim eingiessen ins Glas füllt sich der ganze Raum mit herrlichem Rum Duft. Allerlei tropische Früchte, Banane, Mango, Ananas, etwas Litschi mit dunkler Schokolade verfeinert mit einem dezent herb-harzigen Unterton. Ein Blumen Bouquet mit vielen verschiedenen Blumen, Gräser und Kräuter und einem Schuss Jamaika Funk.
Am Gaumen sagen die 62.5 % Vol. wo's lang geht, dominant aber ohne die Geschmacksknospen zu peinigen. Überreife Früchte, Carambole, Bananen, Rambutans, Papaya, liegen auf dem Boden, frisch vom Baum gefallen. Milchschokolade der besonderen Art mit Kräutern und Gewürzen, Kardamom, Dill, mit einer Priese Meersalz.
Im Abgang ewig, Kakao und Früchte bleiben deiner Zunge auf Immer in Erinnerung.
Ein weiteres geniales Teil und ein Ester-Monster (674 gr./hlpa) aus dieser Velier Serie der weissen Rum. Für Geniesser, Fortgeschrittene und Entdecker.

Crystal clear in the glass.
In the nose simply unbelievable, already when pouring into the glass the whole room fills with wonderful rum scent. All kinds of tropical fruits, banana, mango, pineapple, some lychee with dark chocolate refined with a subtle tart and resinous undertone. A flower bouquet with many different flowers, grasses and herbs and a dash of Jamaica funk.
On the palate the 62.5 % vol. say where it goes, dominant but without tantalising the taste buds. Overripe fruits, carambola, bananas, rambutans, papaya, lie on the ground, freshly fallen from the tree. Milk chocolate of the special kind with herbs and spices, cardamom, dill, with a pinch of sea salt.
In the finish eternal, cocoa and fruit will remain in your tongue forever in memory.
Another ingenious piece and an ester monster (674 gr./hlpa) from this Velier series of white rum. For connoisseurs, advanced and discoverers.

Nose: Lots of acetone and plastic balloon aromas at the beginning. It took a while for this to open up but eventually revealed nuances of mangoes, bananas coated in brown sugar, synthetic leather, wood polish, and pistachios. Not as vibrant as I would have hoped, but I like the undertones of raisins and olives that it also has.

Palate: The palate is much, much more expressive compared to the nose. Canned pineapple chunks, sliced sausages, and white pepper. There are still lots of synthetic notes in the form of adhesive and chocolate foil, but they share the floor with other flavors like the ones I mentioned earlier as well as subtle blue cheese, capers, and sandalwood. Excellent mouthfeel.

Finish: Noticeable dryness on the roof of the mouth, with lingering old cinnamon and coriander. Medium.

The Habitation Velier Long Pond Mark STC❤E is a molasses rum from the Long Pond Distillery in Jamaica and was produced in 2018 in single pot still. The rum was bottled with 62.5% alcohol cask strength and with 674 gr/hlpa ester. Unsweetened, of course. There are 4446 bottles.

The white rum is very intense in the nose. Strong intense notes of solvents are paired with fresh fruit. Apple, banana and tropical fruits. But also floral and some spice resonate with it. The nose is very exciting and interesting and shows the full power of a pure distillate. On the palate, the ester immediately comes back with glue and an intense fruit note of banana and an amazingly present sweetness. The rum is strong and shows surprisingly many facets. The finish is then associated with a warm sharpness and continues to show the fruity ester notes.

The STC❤E is an extraordinary rum that clearly shows the power of pure distillate, which has a lot of potential even without storage and is great to learn what a storage does with a rum. I personally lack the barrel influence and I can not stay here for long. Perfect for a tasting evening and for blending.

Der Habitation Velier Long Pond Mark STC❤E ist ein Melasse Rum aus der Long Pond Distillerie auf Jamaika und wurde 2018 im Single Pot Still hergestellt. Der Rum wurde mit 62,5% Alkohol Fassstärke und mit 674 gr/hlpa Ester abgefüllt. Natürlich ungesüßt. Es gibt 4446 Flaschen.

Der weiße Rum ist sehr intensiv in der Nase. Starke intensive Noten von Lösungsmittel paaren sich mit frischer Frucht. Apfel, Banane und tropische Früchte. Aber auch florale und etwas Würze schwingen mit. Die Nase ist sehr spannend und interessant und zeigen die Kraft des reinen Destillates. Am Gaumen kommt sofort der Ester wieder mit Klebstoff und einer intensiven Fruchtnote von Banane und einer erstaunlich präsenten Süße. Der Rum ist kräftig und zeigt erstaunlich viele Facetten. Der Abgang ist dann durchaus mit einer warmen Schärfe verbunden und zeigt weiter die fruchtigen Ester Noten.

Der STC❤E ist ein außergewöhnlicher Rum, welcher deutlich die Kraft des reinen Destillates zeigt, welches auch ohne Lagerung viel Potenzial hat und toll ist um zu lernen, was eine Lagerung mit einen Rum macht. Mir fehlen persönlich der Fasseinfluss und ich kann hier nicht lange verweilen. Perfekt für ein Tasting Abend und zum Blenden.

Leather, abricot brandy, grappa and kirsch monster. With something of a Port Mourant (that "metallic" feeling and these pistachios). Mesmerizing stuff !

A perfect molasses Eau-de-Vie, a true beast of a rum.

Nose: First thing that pops into my nose is sour strawberry bubblegum then brine, guava and banana, some savoury notes too and vinegar
Taste: mouth watering sour strawberry bubblegum, lots of minerality and brine. Banana and guava, vinegar esters, some light bitterness with the minerality, again some savoury notes like balsamico vinegar marinated prosciutto and hint of damp pine forest aroma.
Finish: surprisingly smooth without water, obviously you get some heat and pepperiness when drank neat.

Suberb white jamaican, i think maybe my favorite from this category so far. Amazing complexity and surprisingly balanced in the array of flavours without lacking any pungency or character.
