Velier Hampden Elliott Erwitt HLCF 2016 5yr 60%

RX10644 Very good Pot Still Rum 1,200 bottles Under 250€
“A harmoniously complex rum, deceivingly mature with a smoky sweetness.”

Introducing the Elliott Erwitt HLCF, a limited-edition release produced in Jamaica at the Hampden distillery and bottled by the independent bottler Velier. Distilled in 2016 from molasses using a pot still, this rum has been aged for 5 years and boasts an ABV of 60%. With only 1200 bottles in existence, this gem is prized for its harmonious yet complex profile. Users delight in its well-balanced fruity aroma of pineapple, ester, Demerara sugar, tropical fruit, and olive. On the palate, the rum exhibits flavors of pineapple, pear, banana, and ester with a smoky touch. Tasters have praised the well-integrated alcohol and rich flavor profile, making it an impressive Hampden for its relatively young age. Enjoy a taste of the exotic with the Elliott Erwitt HLCF.

“Very tasty! Great nose, in the first moment when you take a sip it has briefly a somehow unpleasant mouthfeel. However, this fades very quickly, then spreads a great flavor palette in the mouth! The rum develops from rather acidic ester notes to a sweetish pear with a slight eucalyptus note.”

“With a drop or two of water, this rum works wonderfully. It is harmonious but also complex. Rather on the spicy side and less funk. It seems older than the 5 years. The rum still has a very good PLV.”

“Stands out extremely positively in a direct comparison of the two2016 Hampdens, which were released under the aegis of Velier. Clearly more harmonious and with far better integration of the alcohol.”
