Veritas - White RumA Masterclass In Blending
A fantastically balanced blend of traditional Coffey and Pot Still rums from Foursquare and Double Retort Pot Still from Hampden Estate.
Bottled at a 47% ABV, Veritas has foregone with filtration and additives and instead showcases the quality of the production, letting the quality of the rum shine through.
Nose: Buttercream icing, banana cream, Golden Delicious apples and dried pineapple. Fresh and intensely fruity with a background of whipped cream. Spicy and oily notes develop, along with green leaves.
Palate: Soft, sweet and fruity. The pineapple from the nose returns, along with freshly sliced pineapple, overripe bananas, white-wine-poached pears, pear drops and white chocolate. Darker notes of warm engines, liquorice, clove and woody spice develops.
Finish: Buttery to start, with dark caramel and clove building slowly. Butterscotch and mint linger.
A masterclass in blending, bringing together buttery Barbadian rum with hugely fruity Jamaican spirit. The result is a complex spirit that warrants careful exploration.
