Very similar not only 02, 08 and Plantation HJF 02, but also to <>H 01. Similarities: lots of tropical fruits, overripenness, just the right amount of petrol and banana, dried/candied fruits, solvent taste (more obvious in plantation) Baking Room: This one has more pastry flavor, more sweet flavor, very light wood tone, very little. Dried fruit tastes like it's been cooked. It's thick, and nosing in particular is intoxicating, but not too complicated overall. It's the least complex among three, but it's the most pleasurable of all, and has a nice aroma of sugar.

da möchte man OB zurufen: geht doch! Nochmal deutlich besser als der HJF 2002, und fast auf dem Niveau des Plantation HJF 2002, den ich als Referenz im anderen Glas eingeschenkt habe. Der OB kommt ein klein wenig mehr über die Ester-Schiene und mit Lack, beim Plantation habe ich noch etwas mehr Komplexität, irgendwie Richtung weihnachtliche Gewürze (Orangeat, Zimtstange). Am Gaumen weiß der OB ebenfalls zu überzeugen, die 60,8% sind gut eingebunden, allerdings sind die 70,3 % beim Plantation wirklich hammergut eingebunden. So kommt der OB nicht ganz an den Plantation HJF 2002 heran, aber immer noch top Niveau!

Probablement un des meilleurs embouteillages de chez old Brothers à ce jour. Un nez absolument somptueux avec les arômes typiques de Jamaïque, un mélange de fruits tropicaux mûrs, de solvants, de beurre et d’autres arômes phénoliques qui se confondent avec harmonie et maîtrise. Les 60% ne sont absolument pas perceptibles en bouche, l’attaque se voulant très fruitée, avec des notes de fruits rouges en fin de bouche, pour un délice à la fois complexe, intense et très rond. La finale est tout aussi agréable, avec des notes salines et mentholées et une sensation de colle sur les dents. Un vrai régal.

In der Nase erst viel Klebstoff, der mit der Zeit verfliegt. Am Gaumen schöne Mischung aus Ester, Pfirsich, Klebstoff, Marzipan.

Viel überreife Früchte, würzig-herbe Holznoten mit prägnanter, aber gut eingebundener Röstnote und schwere Süsse von Vanille, Marzipan und Sirup. Sehr guter Rum, was alleine bei Hampden aber wiederum nur fürs Mittelfeld reicht.

Superbe HD En nez et en bouché, très classique du genre mais très bien fichu. En comparaison avec son homologue de chez plantation, je le trouve juste un peu en dessous (alors qu'il est nettement plus cher!)

Braucht einiges an Zeit im Glas... 45min sollten es schon sein ,dann kommt eine tolle Fruchtigkeit zu tage ... schöne Ester und Klebstoffnoten , Hampden sehr deutlich zu riechen und schmecken. Gute Abfüllung zum gerade noch angemessenen Kurs .

Macht richtig Spaß. Viel Hampden Essenz. HJF ist weiterhin als Mark eine Seltenheit. Nase öffnet sich nach 30 Minuten und der Rum strömt durch den Raum. Sehr guter Release von OB, Preis für OB sogar recht okay.

Nez sur l’olive verte. Goût sur le fruit. Finale saline pouvant rappeler certain rhum blanc agricole. Très bon !

Nez supra concentré en esters (étonnant pour une collaboration avec Esters & Co) et sur l’ananas bien mûrs. On retrouve de l’olive et des notes de boîte à confiserie. Le nez est très attirant. En bouche, le côté funky s’efface assez vite pour laisser la place au mélange banane/ananas bien mûrs. 13 ans de vieillissement lui ont conféré une rondeur agréable. C’est sacrément bien intégré et gourmands ! La finale sacrément longue sur le fumé/menthol J’adore ce Jamaïcain tout en contrôle et expressivité. Une belle réussite. Et celui-ci pourra être comparé à notre line up Old Brothers faites en Septembre ! Encore un énorme merci à Seb et Axel pour cette soirée haute en couleur ! Il est évident que nous avions dégusté (bu) bien plus que ces 5 rhums.
