Simplement magnifique. Une bouteille à avoir dans son bar. Une couleur surprenante au vu de son âge. Une explosion de fruits tropicaux de tout les côtés au nez comme en bouche. C'est superbement réalisé avec une belle complexité et un alcool très bien intégré. Je me demande même si ça mérite plus que 92 !

Genialer Hampden mit wenig Säure. I like! Etwas würziger und herber als der Rumclub 1992.

Noticeably harsher than the RC and Nobilis on the nose.

legendärer Tropfen!🇯🇲 eine absolute Explosion an Fruchtaromen und das trotz 24y langer Reifung. vollreife Ananas trifft auf süß saure Himbeeren, dazu gebrannte Mandeln, etwas gesalzenes brioche mit Butterkaramell und flambierten Bananen, sowie kandierten Früchten. Holz Noten die nicht zu dominant sind runden das ganze wunderbar ab. einfach extrem rund, komplex und sehr gut Trinkbar, fast schon süffig! Referenz Hampden!💯⚡🤤

Amazing Hampden, very well balanced!

kein allzu hohes Ester-Level, dadurch tritt das sauer Vergorene und Buttrige nicht so in den Vordergrund. Das aber gerade ist für mich das Spezielle an Hampden. Der gerade zuvor verkostete Velier mit dem höheren HGML Marque gefällt mir noch einen Ticken besser.

Sublime. Ouverte aujourd’hui pour mes 30 ans, et de mon année 1992. Un bonheur ! Edit : après 6 mois d’ouverture, toujours une pure merveille !

Beautifully balanced continentally aged Hampden, a perfect mix of esters and fruits, power and delicacy. Love it!

24 Jahre HLCF im Fass… Sicher nicht nein Lieblingsmark, aber doch auch sehr lecker. Trotz des Alters noch vergleichsweise scharf, wobei das wohl auch ein wenig dem Mark geschuldet ist und eher in einer Säure statt Alkohol durchkommt. Dennoch merkt man ihm das Alter durchaus an, eine ordentliche Portion sowie verschiedene Gewürze wie Anis und Zimt schwingen hinter dem typischen Obstkorb mit und erzeugen ein fast schon weihnachtliches Aroma. Dann auch etwas Marzipan und Mandel und schließlich ein ewiger Abgang - Hampden eben, wenn auch andere hier noch etwas langsamer verschwinden.

Eine echte Überraschung! Vom Geruch, über den Geschmack bis zum Abgang eine tolle Ansammlung an roten Früchten (Johannisbeeren, Himbeeren) und gelben Früchten. Ganz wenig Ester und Holz/Röstnoten. Ein idealer Sommer-Rum.

What a gem! I truly believe that HLCF and HGML are the best expressions of Hampden! Tons of overripe tropical fruits (ananas, jack fruit and banana), mixed with heavier, creamier notes (butter and beef) with a touch of brine and wood from the barrel. I simply cannot stop sniffing and sipping this wonderful rum!
