„Aroma. Very harmonious combination of a quite young Hampden and spicy sherry influence. Relaxed to drink and is really fun!“

„Hampden is written on it, 1,200 bottles so sold out within minutes.but what's inside? It's about the latest release from Hampden with the name Pagos. A distillate with just under 400 esters (so rather a high LROK than a low HLCF) was allowed to spend four years in an ex-sherry barrel.The bottle was rumored for many months on the Internet and was this week Wednesday finally to buy for 79 €.For a Hampden only three years old not so cheap, but sherry cask and limited to 1,200 and gone is the thing.The nose is nice and the sherry comes through well, but the rather low esters are somewhat muted by the sherry.With 52% well drinkable, but I personally would like more ABV and more esters in the base distillate. A dream for Flipper ;) otherwise solid.After a year tasted again and deducted a point.“

„Exciting combination - fresh fruit esters meet heavy, syrupy sweetness from the sherry cask. The whole thing moves on a fine line, because the sherry influences are already quite opulent and put a rich stamp on the overall profile. In the end, however, everything remains sufficiently balanced in my eyes and I thoroughly enjoy it. Successful experiment.“

„Am somewhat ambivalent here.... On the one hand, quite exciting combination, on the other hand, for me not quite balanced !I do not really warm up to the sherry influence here! Certainly still a good rum and for the entry price a good PLV, but I'm glad to have only a sample and not a bottle2.TastingI'm sure now: the Pagos and I will not be friends“

„So now the sherry cask has also reached Hampden original bottlings and despite my aversion I bought it, you have to stay open to new.Unfortunately, I have been a little disappointed. Average Hampden, which got some spice from the sherry casks, which is mainly characterized by a strong cinnamon note on the nose. On the palate, however, clearly less present and thus less exciting, because it is then just a mediocre Hampden. On the other hand, I welcome the restrained sherry note, which is there, but does not slay everything, as you know this from many (especially cheaper) bottlings with sherry casks or finishes.Conclusion: Once again something new, but in total rather boring. After all, the price is probably appropriate.“

„A very intense nose of fruit that clearly reminds of cherry, a desire to taste it immediately. In the mouth, it is very good .... Still clearly in the fruits, iser, with a little oaky side, very nice and funky. On the finish, the cherry clearly comes back on a little toasted side. Cuckoo n summary a different hampden very very fruity, if you like cherry, it is worth it!“

„Young Hampden and sherry cask proves to be well compatible. Triggers now no cheers but here the sherry cask is the complement and does not completely determine the taste. The slightly different Hampden. Very pleasing.“

„As a Hampden fan absolutely brilliant sh...Great sherry note without losing the Jamaica "funk". Not a Great House, but a Daily Sipper.“

„on the bottle unfortunately only sparse info, ie that the rum has spent in 500 liter barrels used for oloroso / PX maturation. On the nose, I quite like the interplay of sherry and buttery fermented ester notes (LROK, HLCF?). I find it even a bit more balanced than the recently tasted rum“

„Boom! Eben getestet und zum Glück gerade bei ebay noch eine Flasche zu einem humanen Preis bestellt. Ich kann mich den bisherigen Bewertungen nur anschließen. Der PX-Anteil hat suf jeden Fall einen wertigen Einfluss auf den Rum! Edit: Nach und nach stelle ich fest, dass der Sherry mich etwas stört. Daher habe ich die Bewertung von 9.5 auf 8.8 gesenkt.“

„Sherry doesn't stop at Hampden either. Am somewhat at odds with me whether this is necessary. In some independent bottlings, the Hampden profile matched the sherry cask to some extent. But it didn't really improve it. So too here...Nose: nice Hampden profile with esters, pineapple, fresh lemon and light vinegar notes. There are also the spicy, slightly smoky flavors from the sherry, which is definitely noticeable. This adds some currant, vanilla and wood.Palate: powerful and dry. You can tell this is a fairly young HD. Bitterly salty at first before the esters appear on the palate, then right away the sherry influence, which is pleasantly restrained overall. Pineapple and lemon zest, more woody and spicy at the back.Quite ok, but really doesn't need it.“
