Velier National Rums of Jamaica Ltd Cambridge ST♥CE 2005

Velier National Rums of Jamaica Ltd Cambridge ST♥CE 2005 Rum Review by the fat rum pirateVelier National Rums of Jamaica Ltd Cambridge ST♥CE 2005. In 2018, Independent bottler Velier released four rums from National Rums of Jamaica, this is the second of those releases that I have reviewed.

This rum was distilled at the legendary Long Pond Distillery. It has been given the Cambridge moniker, in reference to the ester classification used at the now closed Cambridge Distillery. Cambridge ST♥CE refers to rums with a ester level between 550 and 700 gr/hlpa. In the grander scheme of things, this is mid level ester levels but most commercially available Jamaican rums are much lower in esters. This is funky stuff! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
