Habitation Velier Mhoba 2017 Pure Single Rum

, , , ,

Habitation Velier Mhoba 2017 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.
Mhoba 2017 is the result of a partnership between Luca Gargano, president of Velier and Robert Greaves, the founder of Mhoba. From
the beginning of the Mhoba project, they shared a common vision. Mhoba rums are produced from the Nkomazi variety of sugar cane grown on the farm adjacent to the distillery. The sugar cane is cut by hand and pressed by an in-house developed mill. The
cane juice is fermented in part by a local baking yeast as well as wild yeasts. The distillation is conducted with a pot still designed by Robert Greaves. The particularity of this still is to favour a maximum reflux in order to develop heavy and particularly aromatic rums.
Mhoba 2017 aged 4 years in ex-bourbon casks at the distillery, in South Africa with a share of angels above 22%. Bottled, without reduction, at 64.6%, it has a congeners content of 571.3 gr/HLPA including 246.1 gr/HLPA of esters.
Tasting Notes: Profile: Rich and flavourful. Nose: Sweet and spicy. Vanilla, cloves, black pepper, smoky notes. Palate: Concentrated and warm. Coffee beans, caramel.  Finish: Long and woody. Cocoa, smoked wood.
Presentation box included.

Habitation Velier Mhoba 2017 Pure Single Rum is crafted Mhoba Rum Distillery nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Onderberg district of Mpumalanga and amidst their own sugarcane fields.

Unlike most traditional rum, which is made from molasses which is the by-product of refined sugar production, MHOBA rum is made from pure sugarcane juice. Mhoba rum is 100% pot distilled from fermented sugarcane juice and contains no additives, colourants or flavour modifiers and is therefore termed Pure Single Rum – the rum equivalent of Single Malt Whiskey.

Habitation Velier is a very special collaboration project created by the Italian raconteur and owner of the Velier company, Luca Gargano, and the very best rum distillers in the Caribbean and the world.

Although still not widely known, Pure Single Rums are the purest expressions of sugar cane and its by-product; molasses, which have been distilled exclusively in a pot still. Each Habitation Velier expression is the result of a unique project. Rich in flavour and high in proof, they represent a new generation of rums for the aficionado. The aged rums embody the power of the interaction between the wood and the complexity of the old methods of production.
