€135.00 VAT included

Hampden 7 years 2016 OWH by Habitation Velier is an exceptional Jamaican rum. Distilled at the renowned Hampden Estate distillery, this rum showcases an intense and complex character. With ester levels ranging between 40 and 80 grams per hectoliter of pure alcohol, this variation of the OWH mark (Outram Wormald Hussey) stands out for having the lowest ester content among rums produced by Hampden Estate. It aged entirely in a tropical climate, in American oak barrels previously used for bourbon, resulting in an angel's share of 42%. Bottled in 2023, it underwent no additions or dilutions.

Nose: Rich and heady. Scents of vetiver, rubber, sugarcane, and camphor vie for attention. Upon aeration, the aromatic palette becomes more medicinal (balm, mustard plaster) and smoky. Then, exotic fruits (banana, pineapple) permeate the olfactory space.

Palate: Lively and spirited. The palate is met with flavors of distillate full of character. A blend of coriander, tar, sugarcane, and geranium honey dominates the mid-palate. Finally, toffee and ripe bananas soothe the taste buds.

Finish: Long and heady. At the outset of the finish, the potency of the distillate serves as a foundation for the flavor profile. Gradually, lactose notes (agave, coconut), fruity hints (melon, apricot), and refreshing menthol emerge, refreshing an increasingly floral aftertaste, marked by iris concrete.
