Hampden HLCF-DOK 2010 Habitation Velier 9 Year Old Single Cask #76
A very rare and unusual expression of Hampden, this is a blended in barrel combination of two cask marks: HLCF identifying a rum with 550 g/hlaa esters and DOK which indicates 1500-1600 g/hlaa.
Distilled in 2010 on the double retort pot still, this was fully matured for 9 years at the Jamaican distillery.
One of only 251 bottles drawn from ex-bourbon cask #79.
Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.
