excellent! The smell-taste consistency, in addition to the intense tropical fruit notes, there are deep vanilla with tea and unknown plant/spice notes. The order of tropical fruits'presentation is slightly different from typical Hampden (HV, Continental Age, etc.). Overall, the flavors are complex and very layered, fulfilling my expectations of Hampden. PS: That the contact between the cork and the bottle wasn't close enough to completely seal the bottle (the Plantation Extreme and some single cask also have this problem), so the smell escaped from the tiny gap in the mouth of the bottle, which may lead to the loss of flavor over time. Therefore, I suggest to fill the inert/fresh gas into the bottle after drinking, and then seal it with plastic wrap or sealing film again.

Un autre très bon Hampden de chez Old Brothers. Plus vieux que le HJF 2008, des notes plus boisées, végétales et pâtissières se font ressentir en plus des notes de fruits tropicaux et de solvants. Cette impression se confirme en bouche, avec des notes plus épicées et pimentées également. La finale se veut plus fraîche et mentholée, légèrement saline. Un rhum vieux et élégant, qui constitue une très belle référence pour Old Brothers et la Jamaïque.

Interessantes Marque: HJF wird nicht mehr produziert und kommt mit 826 gr/hl AA Esters daher, also irgendwo zwischen HLCF und <>H. An der Nase fruchtbetont, mir kommen Banane und Passionsfrucht in den Sinn. Daneben auch Backgewürz und clotted cream (wie sie es zu scones gibt). Das Vergorene und die Klebstoffe sind hier relativ dezent. Am Gaumen sehr würzig, daneben Zitrusfrüchte und im Abgang leicht bitterer Mokka. Gefällt mir gut, wenn da nur nicht der Eindruck bliebe, dass die 53,6% irgendwie wässrig schmecken. Auch wenn es brachial ist, mutiger wären die 76,6% Fassstärke gewesen.

Un nez très gourmand et porté sur les fruits tropicaux ! Très très bon ! En bouche plus accessible que je ne l'aurais crû. Une vrai pâtisserie. Une attaque légèrement piquante qui laisse vite la place à des saveurs onctueuse. 2eme dégustation et j'aime encore plus 😍 Un des coups de coeurs de l'année 2021

Super rhum, le nez est doux et les fruits tropicaux sont bien présent. Très peu boise par rapport aux 18 ans. La bouche est cohérente et on a un bon côté pâtissier. La banane bien mûre en fin de bouche est superbe.

Glue, tropical fruits and bubblegum. Bloody brilliant!

Ein richtig guter Hampden! Angenehme Ester, leckerer Früchtekorb und schön schwer cremig ölig! Top!
