Habitation Velier 2016 Hampden <>H Jamaica 5yo 62% 700ml information

The Habitation Velier 2016 Hampden <>H Jamaica rum is a highly sought-after, limited release, showcasing exceptional ester richness and fruity zest. This 5-year-old rum, bottled at a cask strength of 62% ABV, is produced at the renowned Hampden Distillery in Jamaica and carefully selected by Habitation Velier. It features an impressive ester content, providing a potent aroma of pineapple, solvents, banana, and a signature Hampden funk. The palate offers a vibrant taste of tropical fruit, young wood, and ester with a pineapple undertone. This rum greatly benefits from oxidation, enhancing its taste and character even further. It is one of the highest marks from the distillery, identifying a rum with over 900-1000 g/hLpa of esters.

The Hampden <>H rum is a high-ester, heavy-bodied Jamaican rum, with a high ester count of 2472.1 g/hlap, of which 885.5 g/hlap are esters. Distilled on a double retort pot still, it has been matured for five years in ex-bourbon casks, resulting in a 35% angel's share due to the tropical climate. This rum is a true high ester Jamaican, bottled directly from the cask.

The Habitation Velier Hampden 2016 H Rum offers a captivating flavor profile, combining the typical Jamaican "funk" with a subtle alcoholic bite. Fruity, rich, and yet very dry and sweet, it leaves a lasting impression. It is recommended to enjoy this rum with a little water, which takes off some of its edges while revealing more aromatic nuances.

This rum, with its high ester content and remarkable proof, is a true testament to the Hampden Estate's tradition of producing some of the finest Jamaican rums. With an above-average angel's share of around 60%, it undergoes significant alcohol evaporation during tropical aging, resulting in a unique and bold flavor profile.


  • What makes the Habitation Velier 2016 Hampden <>H Jamaica rum unique?

    This rum is unique due to its high ester content, which provides a vibrant and complex flavor profile, and its cask strength of 62% ABV. It is also aged in ex-bourbon casks for five years, resulting in a 35% angel's share due to the tropical climate.

  • How should I enjoy this rum?

  • Why is this rum considered a limited release?

Reviewer's opinion

Reviewers generally find the Habitation Velier 2016 Hampden <>H Jamaica rum to be a solid representation of a high ester, young Jamaican rum, though some note it could benefit from additional aging. It delivers a potent bouquet of tropical fruits, esters, and a distinctive Hampden funk. The alcohol is noticeable but improves with aeration. While some feel it lacks the complexity and sweetness of older rums, it is still highly regarded for its unique profile and robustness.
