The third vintage from Jamaicaâs Worthy Park distillery, which began producing rum again in 2005.
Released by Velierâs Habitation series, it follows the 2005 and 2006 âForsythsâ releases. Distilled through the Forsyths double retort pot still, this has been bottled at 59% without added colour or sugar.
This ten-year-old has been aged in the Caribbean for ten years before it was bottled in 2017.
This is a pure single rum as it has been distilled through pot still at a single distillery.
Luca Garganoâs Velier is a famed Italian importer that has become one of the most important rum bottlers in the world. A pioneer of rum classification and transparency, the releases are finally making their way to Australia. The Habitation series is reserved for unique and rare collaborations.
Nose: Intensely fruity, with an estery kick. Concentrated banana essence, apples, pear drops, new leather and cloves. Crunchy caramel notes develop around the sides, with hints of vanilla toffee, aniseed twists and nutmeg-spiced cake batter.
Palate: Thick and spicy, with cinnamon fireballs rolling down the centre of the tongue. Buttery notes build, along with darker notes of fruit cake and liquorice. Damp oak and dark chocolate build through the centre.
Finish: Egg custard tarts and dark chocolate fade to leave baked apples sprinkled with cinnamon.
