Really not liking this one - somehow the cognac cask clashes with Hampden funk in an unpleasant way. Not often that this is the case but I cannot finish more than a few sips.

A 5yo Hampden finished in Cognac is a nice approach to this rum. High esters on the nose but mellowed out but the sweeter cognac finish. Taste is warm and not as intense as the nose but very flavourful giving an enjoyable finish which nicely lingers around with a strong peppery and salty taste. I do like a slightly sweet edge on a rum which is prob why I rated this higher than the 8yo but both are very good rums.
