This one was a retaste and I stick to my original score. A very nice Jamaican. Another pretty good Jamaica and again the ABV has bee integrated really well. Intense and funky with fruits and lightly dry on the palate and finish. I like the roasted wood in the profile. It draws very nice curtains in the glass.

Für mich nicht ganz das Niveau des Nobilis 2013, aber sehr geiler Release. Der tropische Anteil der Reifung ist klar spürbar.

Ein klassisches <>H Hampdenprofil mit nicht ganz perfekt eingebundenem Alkohol! Aber viel Ester und gebackener Ananas 😊 Lecker

Nez typique Hampden. Esters, ananas, vernis. Ça donne envie d'aller plus loin. En bouche, ça explose. Les presque 70° ne sont pas trop présents. Du fruit à gogo. Des esters. Un petit côté iodé. C'est très bon. Dommage, finale assez courte avec une amertume et une astringence certaine. Très bon.

Schöner 2013 <>H, der Konzentration erfordert und viel Zeit zum Atmen braucht. Kein Rum für Anfänger. Tolles PLV

Ein sehr guter, typischer hampden, der eher auf der bitteren, adstringierenden Seite ist.

L'alcool n'est pas très bien intégré, c'est dommage. Sinon on a un Hampden très original avec une noté de café-chocolat assez douce contrebalancé par le punch d'un Hampden à haut degré. Beau potentiel mais pas exploité parfaitement.

Nobilis N14 vs. SBS. Crown goes to the Nobilis. While both are extremely nice, the SBS feels more heavy, roasted and closed up. The Nobilis almost feels elegant with a very nice balance between esters and notes from the cask. Both are beasts however and I‘m surprised how much I like them actually. Nice cask selection from both bottlers.

Grosse bombe ! Très puissant avec des belles notes d’ananas rôti et de cuir. Alcool pas parfaitement intégré cependant.

C: Light Gold N: You should know that a CH Hampden was my first pot still rum, and it was love at the first sight. I went from Foursquare and sugared rums to 1300-1400 gr/hL AA in a blink. It was tuff, I admit that, but I’ve never looked back since. Anyways, typical Hampden with pineapples, nail polish remover and touches of vinegar. I would even suggest that this was more continental aged rather than tropical. It has the kind of intense lightness I like. M: The rum wants to eat your tongue. So sweet and fresh despite the intense aromas. That should tell you that this rum does not want to hurt you but loves you. In your face and wild, the way I like it. F: Who cares! B: Yes. I think I prefer this to the 5y HV 2016, 62%. I don’t know really; it´s just by memory I’m saying this.
