“Nice rum, but a little under compared to batch1. The presence of a slight solvent note I liked less and it is less intense. However, we are talking about finesse and personal taste. We are dealing with a rum that I would drink all the time! I do not understand all these new versions of Hampden Velier that I find little different from each other and especially pòco justified in terms of value for money. Velier lately is focusing too much on collectors with the result of making the bottles unobtainable already upon release and overpriced.”

“This is a retaste and I stick to my initial score 😊 A pretty good HLCF release and I have ordered a bottle after testing the sple I got. Leave to rest for a good while in order to release all the flavours. You can also add a few drops of water if you think it bites too much. The nose is intense and fruity with wood, clove and varnish and a hint of mint. The palate is also intense and fruity with smoky wood and nice spiciness to it. The finish is long and fruity with smoky wood, sugarcane and light herbal notes.”

“I’m a bit confused about this rum replacing the Overproof, as they are so different from each other. I may recalibrate this another day. - Now another day, but still no recalibration 🤪 however this is really good and I’m bumping it a few points. - Coming back to this rum again and I still consider it’s a completely different but better rum than the original.”
