Habitation Velier Privateer New England Single Rum 2017 3yr 55,6%

RX5636 Good Column Still Rum 1,200 bottles Under 100€
“Complex, youthful rum with bold vanilla, caramel, and spicy oak.”

Introducing the New England Single Rum from Privateer Rum Distillery in the USA, specially selected and bottled by Habitation Velier. Distilled in 2017 from molasses using a Column Still and aged for 3 years, this limited release offers only 1200 bottles at a cask strength of 55.6% ABV. Well-regarded for its young age, this rum offers prominent notes of vanilla, caramel, coconut, and bourbon, while being spicy and woody. With a complex flavor profile reminiscent of Barbadian rums, its blend of tastes includes toffee, and chocolate, albeit with a somewhat fleeting presence in the mouth. Although leaning heavily towards bourbon characteristics, this American rum still showcases its potential as an enjoyable sipper.

“I got this bottle yesterday and couldn't wait until the weekend with the tasting. This is a relatively light rum and I had expected a rum with more punch to it. The nose has bourbon on it with sweet caramel and heavy vanilla notes with a bit of coconut. The palate is dominated by caramel with a lot of spices and you can really taste the burnt molasses. The finish is long and has burnt oak and spices that linger for very long.”

“This Rum is a good example of American Rum, that seems to target the home market and thus has nuances of other prevailing spirits there, like bourbon. It is nice, but not exceptional... Reminds me of Bourbon as well as some Babados Rums.”
