Hampden LROK Jamaica Single Rum
As with all of the Habitation Velier releases, this is pure, uncut rum from a traditional pot still, giving a full, genuine, and intensely flavorful look into what one of the great distillates of the rum world can do when left to its own devices. Distilled in a double retort pot still, this mark (LROK) specifically refers to rums with an ester content between 350-450 gr/hlpa, labeled "Light Rum Owen Kelly", or LROK as a shortened designation. It should be noted that this is a light rum only by Hampden Estate's standards, with an ester count far above most other rums on the market, even those from Jamaica.
The nose shows notes of sugar cane, citrus, heady florals, and exotic tropical fruit. Allowed to breathe, it becomes honeyed and herbaceous, with a luscious hit of peach and pear alongside chocolate and vanilla. The concentrated finish is herbaceous, spicy, fruity and floral, with more fruits, aromatic plants and lime. Bottled at 57.8% ABV.
