Amazing flavors of powdered rouge and menthol, heavy vanilla and herbaceous, spice (with pepper, cinnamon… and baking spices). The dried fruits was fresh, uncooked or not even dry completely, with an aroma of olives and tea and unknown spices. woody, very complex. The complexity is the highest of the several, slightly higher than <>H, and is sufficiently open to not be closed at all. But the pleasure is a little bit lower. 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.

Probiert mit seinem jüngeren „Bruder“ RX12021. In meinen Augen ist der 2008er klar besser. Preislich ist der the nectar HJF eh komplett übertrieben. 85 ist mein Limit für die Bewertung.

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.

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

Très agréable au nez et ce côté colle, solvant qui resort tellement en bouche... Pour moi j'aime moins que le 2008 de Esther and co.
