Habitation Velier Worthy Park 2009 Pure Single Rum

, , ,

Habitation Velier Worthy Park 2009 Pure Single Rum is part of the highly anticipated Worthy Park releases 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 a 2009 vintage from one of the oldest distilleries in Jamaica – Worthy Park Estate.

Worthy Park Estate is a historic distillery in Jamaica that re-opened in 2005. The 2009 WPL (Worthy Park Light) rum was distilled in the Estate’s  fifth year of renewed operation. This final 2020 Habitation Velier release was aged tropically for 11 years and bottled at a barrel proof of 58.5% abv. The WPL marque has an an ester count between 60-119 g/hlAA.

Tasting Notes: On the nose, you’ll find bananas foster, green and black olive brine, black peppercorns, pancake batter, cake frosting, cherry cola, toasted rye bread, burning sage, and burnt molasses. There’s a lot going on. On the palate: bubblegum, cola, dark molasses, burnt banana bread, chimney smoke, mint chocolate, and a long finish of tingly black pepper.
