Tasting Notes

This is the kind of rum that has helped define what quintessential Jamaican style is all about. The pot still distillation and heavy ester concentration yield a rum of exemplary power. Worthy Park is the oldest distillery on record from this great rum producing island and one of the most historic producers in the entire category, Having their rums hit US shores for the first time in a generation is a great thing for American rum drinkers. This white rum, while powerful and funky, actually resolves into something quite charming and almost seductive after sometime in the glass. Notes include overripe bananas, passion fruit, heavy waves of aromatic tropical flowers, toasted coconut and bitter almond. Distilled from 100% estate molasses, without added sugar and bottled at a high abv of 57%.

Staff Pick Notes

People tend to consider white rums as simple or lacking depth. But here is an example showing the possibilities of well made white rum in a distinctly Jamaican style. Habitation Vealer is dedicated to single rums distilled from unique pot stills. This one is a collaboration with Worthy park Distillery which holds the oldest record of rum production in Jamaica. The quality that really sets this rum apart is the result of three months fermentation allowing the natural flavors to meld into a stunning rum. Compared with Agricole rums this is bolder with an undeniably thick texture. The nose teases you with warm tropical flora and sweet plantain. On the palette the that rich texture sways with lush fruits into a long, slow finish. All in all a beautiful experience.
