Veritas

Veritas bottle

70cl, 47% ABV

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.

Tasting Notes

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.

Comment

A masterclass in blending, bringing together buttery Barbadian rum with hugely fruity Jamaican spirit. The result is a complex spirit that warrants careful exploration.
