Habitation Velier Hampden 2010 HGML Pure Single Rum

, , ,

Habitation Velier Hampden 2010 HGML Pure Single Rum is part of the highly anticipated 3rd release from VELIER. In 2016 VELIER launched the Habitation Velier range, being the world’s only range of Pure Single Rums acting as a reference point to the type of rum produced by each distillery’s unique pot still.

The term ‘Pure Single Rum’ defines a rum from a single distillery, distilled exclusively in pot stills. Pot still rums are more complex and typically more suitable to long ageing. The vintage Pure Single Rums are entirely aged in the tropics, ensuring a natural, accelerated aging compared to European ageing, at the expense of higher angels share.

The 3rd releases continue the vision of showcasing some of the worlds finest pot still rums, featuring expression from Moneymusk, Hampden and Long Pond in Jamaica.

Habitation Velier Hampden 2010 HGML Pure Single Rum has the marque HGML (Hampden George MacFarquhar Lawson) and takes us on a journey through the powerful esters, typical of funky Jamaican rums. In the continuity of these confreres, the fineness is mixed with the intensity of the aromatic palette, force of a historical know-how. An explosive cocktail for amateurs.
