Welcome to Jamaica! In the nose coconut, pineapple , banana, spicy and lovely ester notes. In mouth it‘s starts with a bitter taste than it delivers the classic funky note with fruit basket, anise, ester… The finish is dry, woody with notes of ester, chocolate anise and tannins. Very very delicious rum. It‘s complex and spicy, so give it some time to fully open. You could add some water for sure (2-3 drops)

Un monde de différence entre l’ouverture de la bouteille et quatre mois plus tard. Un rhum dur et alcoolique se transforme en un rhum toujours fort, mais très fruité avec un bois très bien intégré. Un tout petit peu d’eau adoucit le nez, révèle encore plus de fruits et fait ressortir un léger fumé. Une très belle surprise et un rhum délicieux ! Une finale raisins au rhum remarquable. Re-re-goûté et encore meilleur.

I like this one and you get the esters though they're not super high. A very fruity rum with some funk and wood/chocolate. I really like the smoky wood finish.

Un Hampden très aromatique et puissant, au nez typique constitué de fruits tropicaux mûrs, d’agrumes, de solvants, d’esters et de vernis, avant d’enchaîner sur des notes plus florales, de la vanille et du bois. Après aération, une pointe fumée et viandard se fait ressentir. Le rhum est puissant et intense en bouche, porté par les marqueurs jamaïcains, le massepain, le cuir et les épices. L’alcool est certes présent, mais il est remarquablement bien intégré. La finale, extrêmement longue, continue sur le profil épicé, fumé, salé, fruité avec des notes de tannins et de cuir. Un rhum très intense, aromatique, gourmand et qui fait honneur à sa distillerie.

Excellent! un des hampden que je préfère. C'est vraiment élégant on ne sent pas les 67° tellement c'est bien fait!

Un fort gout de mangue, très agréable. Le côté sombre de la finale contrebalance bien le milieu de bouche très fruité. C'est très réussi.

Très fruité au nez avec full ester ! En bouche toute les promesses dés fruit sont là ! C est très intense, une multitude des fruits tropicaux, très mûres et l alcool y est super bien intégré. Que c est bon !

One of the best Hampden habitation Velier, it need to breathe for at least 30min prior tasting. It's a very complex dram, many layers come one after another, Its really rich and enjoyable. Amazing Rum!

Vom Geschmack her eher auf der süßen Seite tropischer Früchte (Mango, Papaya, Banane). Dazu ein funky Abgang mit etwas Gummi. Im Geschmack auch etwas Schokolade. Für einen LROK schon ziemlich funky.
