Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 Pure Single Rum

, , , ,

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 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 release continue the vision of showcasing some of the worlds finest pot still rums, featuring expression from Worthy Park and Hampden in Jamaica, and Mount Gay in Barbados.

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 Pure Single Rum comes from the Mount Gay Rum Refinery, and was triple distilled in a McMillan Pot Still like the previous vintage 2007. Once again paying homage to the family of Frank Ward, owner of the Mount Gay Distillery before its acquisition by Rémy Cointreau, this Pure Single Rum from Barbados spent 9 years in ex-Bourbon casks. Last Ward 2009 has a powerful and an aromatic profile that is as rich as it is complex
