Habitation Velier Trois Frères Distillery Takamaka 2021 Unaged 56%

RX11258 Good White Rum Under 100€
“Sweet, fruity, and floral. Great for cocktails and mixing.”

Takamaka by Habitation Velier, crafted at Seychelles' Trois Frères Distillery, is an unaged rum distilled from sugar cane juice using a pot still. At 56% ABV, it offers a refreshing nose with vegetal, grassy, and chamomile notes. The palate reveals floral, minty, and fresh grass flavors with hints of raisins and eucalyptus. While some find it unremarkable on its own, many recommend it for mixed drinks, particularly emphasizing its suitability for cocktails like ti-punch or in a cola with lime. This rum stands out for its fresh and green profile, a lighter yet intriguing option for rum enthusiasts seeking a unique, mineral-rich agricole experience. Engage your senses with its grassy, floral character, perfect for tropical cocktail experiments.

“I think this one would do very well in a cola with a slice of lime, but that's something I'll try later. The nose is fresh and fruity with grass and floral . The palate is light, fresh and oily with raisins, grass and floral notes as well as a hint of mint. The finish is medium long and light with fruits and grassy notes.”

“Buh… What can I say… Really some type of rum I wouldn’t recommend to drink neat… This one I would rather see in some mixed drinks… The alcohol isn’t integrated well and gives it a strange note. First disappointing one from Velier 😅”

“Does not have to be drunk neat. The alcohol is not particularly well integrated. I miss the fruits here.”
