Despite the relative young age this is a spot on fresh and intense release, wow. When looking at the price tag at release you get a lot of vang for your buck. An intense and fruity rum with a fresh and floral profile. ABV really well integrated and overall just and enjoyable rum.

Sehr schöne Ergänzung der Habitation Velier-Reihe. Mit etwas Zeit zum Atmen bekommt man hier einen richtig guten Hampden mit wie zu erwarten kräftigen Fruchtestern, etwas Fasseinfluss, Gewürzen und angenehmer Süsse. Sehr gut.

A very good surprise that this young Hampden is full-bodied and exuberant. The power of the DOK mark is noticeable with a very fruity, phenolic and floral nose, with fermented, medicinal notes and a hint of camphor. This heavy, intense profile comes through on the palate, with some spicy notes adding depth to the rum. It's bold, oily and very indulgent. The same flavors return on a long and lingering finish. A very nice bottling that shows a lot of complexity and has a lot going for it for its young age.

Rarely have I looked forward to tasting a bottling so much. The DOK profile we know primarily from the 2009 continental matured. Finally, Habitation Velier has released a tropically matured DOK. Five years of tropical aging and bottled at 60.5%. The DOK DNA is unmistakable and quite similar to the profile we know and many love. It is not quite as brute as the continental DOK and for me, a touch more complex. I must confess that my expectations were exceeded. Now of course follows the test in May Tai.

Nose... Fruity, acidity ... Ester (no Ester monster as often in DOK but something tamer ) the Tropical storage takes him something the bite makes him but for me more interesting and also rounder ... On the palate initially a great fruity sweetness, alcohol very well integrated ... Ester rather restrained but still clear. For me very exciting and tasty !!!

Sehr guter DOK, der durch die tropische Lagerung etwas zahmer geworden ist. Aber er hat alles, was ein guter Hampden braucht!

It gets tastier from sip to sip.

Tres sympathique version du DOK, un peu camphrée, assez grasse et crémeuse, un peu d’amertume et de fumée, mais c’est assez agréable!
