C’est très bon très bien fait, Le nez est extra ! L’ABV est un peu faible. Dommage…

This is a really nice Hampden release. Very round and tasty with lots of fruits and a balanced level of esters. I do like it quite a bit - recommended. If you are a „drinker“ don‘t fall for any inflated „collectors“ prices, however. While this is nice, it is not outstanding and there are plenty of Hampdens available which can compete.

Probiert als 5cl Sample. Geruchlich zunächst viel Naturjoghurt/Butter, Frucht, Leder und Ester, wie man sie von Hampden kennt. Danach intensiver Geschmack nach vergorener Frucht/Ester, Gewürzen und verglichen mit anderen Hampdens die ich probiert habe recht süß nach Honig. Im Abgang dann etwas rauchig. Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden und insgesamt gefällt er mir sehr gut. Schade, dass die Flaschen so teuer geworden sind. Edit: Beim zweiten verkosten habe ich statt Joghurt eher abgelaufene saure Milch in der Nase, die aber irgendwie nicht ekelig riecht sondern zusammen mit den Früchten eine interessante Harmonie ergibt. Edit 2: Sample leer, immernoch wunderbar interessanter Rum mit tollem Geschmacksprofil. Absolut empfehlenswert.

With a to long finish this is the third release of Great House. This one is close to the other two, but I would have loved a higher ABV. In my mind that would have pushed the score a bit higher. I like the light smoky oak from nose to finish. On top of that there is fruit and a hint of caramel, tobacco and leather. The funk is there but the price to quality is very good.

An der Nase schöne fruchtige Aromen von tropischen Früchten, Mango, Papaya, Mirabelle und Banane. Esternoten eher im Hintergrund. Am Gaumen geht es fruchtig weiter. Hier kommt auch eine angenehme Note von Konfekt und Gewürzen. Sehr rund und gelungen. Reiht sich natlos in die GH-Reihe ein. Demnächst noch mal ein cross tasting.

Tasting day 1: Ananas! Nice nose and taste. There is a strong fruity sweetness, that goes on to a dry aftertaste. All sorts of esters play around, and I have them in an aftertaste even 1 hour later. Tasting day 2: I have some additional fruit in the nose, like pear, and the taste is much better to my liking, this time. I attribute this to giving the sample some additional time to breathe. Very good!

Das ist zahme aber die typische Hampden DNA: Überreife Ananas und Ester, eher junges Profil, leichter Holzeinfluss, eher wenig Tiefe. Der Mund ist interessanter: Super trocken und nach dem Ananas-Ester-Programm kommt noch eine salzige, vegetabile Note, die ein Level an Komplexität bringt, die die Nase nicht erreicht. Der Abgang ist angenehm, nicht übermäßig lang und ohne Überraschungen. Alkohol ist gut eingebunden. Zum UVP ist das ein super Rum, aber warum genau gibt es einen solchen Hype um diese Abfüllung?

Deutlich milder als die Vorgänger. Auch durch die 55%. Angenehm zu trinken, aber keine Offenbarung wie die Vorgänger.

im direkten Vergleich mit dem GH20. Erster Eindruck an der Nase: der GH21 hat mehr von den vergorenen Früchten, und auch die typisch buttrigen Noten, die es beim <>H Marque gibt, sind beim GH21 etwas stärker vorhanden. Der GH20 bringt mehr Balance zwischen Würze und Ester-Noten mit. Ob das an der etwas anderen Zusammensetzung liegt (LFCH/<>H vs OWH/<>H) oder gegebenenfalls einem etwas anderen Verhältnis der beiden Marques zueinander, kann ich nicht abschätzen. Der GH21 ist auf gewohnt hohem Niveau, aber der GH20 trifft es noch ein wenig besser für mich.
