Habitation Velier Long Pond 2005 TECA Pure Single Rum

, , ,

Habitation Velier Long Pond 2005 TECA 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 Long Pond 2005 TECA Pure Single Rum is produced in the famous Trelawny region in Jamaica and still has some nice surprises with this new TECA version, 2005 vintage, of the Long Pond distillery. Containing a very high level of esters, oscillating between 1200 and 1300 grams per hectolitre of pure alcohol, this rum alternates the most unbridled olfactory and taste sequences. An exuberant nose, a powerful mouth and a long and gourmet finish make this Habitation Velier a must in its category.
