Habitation Velier Hampden H 2016 Pure Single Rum

, , ,

Habitation Velier Hampden H 2016 Pure Single Rum is part of the highly anticipated 2021 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.

This latest release continue the vision of showcasing some of the worlds finest pot still rums, featuring expression from Mhoba in South Africa, Hampden in Jamaica, and Takamaka from the Seychelles.
Hampden 2016 <> H unveils another mark in the series of Hampden bottling by Habitation Velier (apart from the Hampden 2010 <>H single cask released in 2019). A typical example of the high ester rums, however less extreme compared to its predecessors HGML and C<>H.
Equipped with four pot stills, the Hampden distillery is renowned to produce both heavy pot rums and light pot rums. This very representative version marked has a high ester content of between 900 and 1000 gr/HLPA after distillation. Aged entirely on
Jamaican soil for 5 years in ex-bourbon barrels, this rum has been bottled at cask strength, 62% ABV. During the aging, the angels’ share exceeded 40%.
Tasting Notes: Profile: Powerful and fruity. Nose: Intense and concentrated. Pineapple, black olive, notes of star anis. Palate: Full-bodied and refined. Banana, almond paste, acetone. Finish: Empyreumatic and deep. Citrus fruit, notes of hydrocarbon.
Presentation box included.
