HABITATION VELIER WORTHY PARK 2007

Home   LIQUOR   RUM


The wonderful Worthy Park distillery in Saint Catherine Parish is maybe one of Jamaica's newest distillery, but the history and quality of the operation is second to none. Habitation Velier has acquired several small-batch vintages from the special distillery, all aged on site. This particular offering is from their "light" spirit, implying lower esters. That does not preclude it from being extremely powerful and complex. After 10 years of aging at the estate they've lost over 64% of the initial volume. On paper this rum is extremely similar to the 2005, but the actual character is completely different. This is the reality of small batch estate grown rum, the consistency that big rum demands disappears. And where consistency is lost character is born.
