This is the kind of rum that has helped define what quintessential Jamaican style is all about. The pot still distillation and heavy ester concentration yield a rum of exemplary power. Worthy Park is the oldest distillery on record from this great rum producing island and one of the most historic producers in the entire category. Having their rums hit US shores for the first time in a generation is a great thing for American rum drinkers.
This white rum, while powerful and funky, actually resolves into something quite charming and almost seductive after sometime in the glass. Notes include overripe bananas, passion fruit, heavy waves of aromatic tropical flowers, toasted coconut and bitter almond.
Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 502 is the result of a extremely long, wild fermentation. It is distilled in the double retort pot still built by Forsyths, installed at Worthy Park in 2005. This rum, which has 502 grams of esters per hectoliter of pure alcohol, offers all the aroma and complexity of old-world Jamaica rum. Distilled from 100 estate molasses, without added sugar and bottled at a high abv of 57.
