Cross-tasting mit RX27 & RX11980 Muss meine Initiale Bewertung doch deutlich anheben. Im direkten Vergleich besser als der neue Hampden HLCF Classic 2017, aber doch ein Ecke hinter dem Velier HLCF 2010

What I like about this rum is how well the ABV has been integrated. A very well balanced rum indeed. The price is stiil up among the others though. The nose is fruity with ester, waxes, honey, chocolate and vanilla. The palate is warm, complex and extremely well balanced with fruits, honey, sugarcane, chocolate and vanilla as well as a nice smoky touch. The finish is long and warm with pineapple, vanilla and again that lovely smoky note.

Sehr lecker! Tolle Nase, im ersten Moment wenn man einen Schluck nimmt hat er kurz ein irgendwie unangenehmes Mundgefühl. Das verfliegt allerdings sehr schnell, danach breitet sich eine tolle Geschmackspalette im Mund aus! Der Rum entwickelt sich von eher säuerlichen Esternoten hin zu einer süßlichen Birne mit einer leichten Eukalyptusnote.

Sticht äusserst positiv heraus im Direktvergleich der beiden2016er Hampdens, die unter der Ägide von Velier releases wurden. Deutlich harmonischer und mit weitaus besserer Einbindung des Alkohols.

Un Hampden au profil typique et maîtrisé. Le nez attaqué sur les esters et les fruits tropicaux mûrs, mais offre de belles notes pâtissières, beurrées et des fruits confits par la suite. La bouche se veut intense et saisissante avec les fruits exotiques, une pointe d’olive, et surtout une saveur fumée et de viande qui donnent du caractère au rhum. La finale est assez longue et se prolonge sur la même trame de fumée et de fruits exotiques. L’alcool y est très bien intégré. Un Hampden solide pour son faible compte d’âge.

Ce qu'on attend d'un Hampden de cet âge là et à ce degré d'alcool. Le premier nez est sur l'ananas, l'olive et une pointe de fumée. Avec l'ouverture, on retrouve une note gourmande. qui me rappelle la poire pochée. En bouche c'est gras et fruité. La finale est relativement longue et sèche, sur les epices et la fumée. L'ensemble est une belle réussite. Meilleur que le Habitation Velier H à mon goût.
