Maximum intensity: the 86% drives both the esters and the tropical fruits neatly into the nose. Oddly enough, this quickly gets used to it. Now there is also room for more specific: coconut, banana, a bit of vinegar and marzipan. Plus some wood and tart, roasted hazelnut out the back. Caution is advised. The alcohol makes it creamy and really warm on the palate. Strongly astringent at the start, the fine esters then pop on the tongue. Definitely sweet, tart, ripe pineapple here now with passion fruit and neat marzipan. The back is a bit more buttery with a squeeze of lemon, and the long finish is clearly esters. In addition, pineapple, marzipan and at the very end the barrel comes through a little.HGML is already brilliant in itself, but with these %% even more of a challenge!!!

This one was the big surprise at the Germen Rum Festival. For a two year old it carries a nice controlled punch on the nose with intense notes. On the palate it just explodes with esters and fruits and the alcohol is very well integrated, so much so that it was something we talked a lot about.

What a sick stuff. Brutally cool. I almost can't believe the two years. Respect to RDL for this bottling and thank you Tobi for giving me a sample.

Pure palate orgasm. It is fantastic how well the alcohol is integrated here, which leads to an estery explosion in the mouth already when the glass is put on. The highlight at the 11th German Rum Festival.

Quite approachable for the stark frame data. What fascinates me most is the creaminess on the palate. However, the high ABV commands a fair amount of respect. The RDL is far from an easy sipper!

Wie kann ein 2y alter Rum mit 86% so smooth sein?! Den Preis kann ich dennoch beim besten Willen nicht nachvollziehen...

Given the framework data (2 years in Virgin Oak aged high ester rum at 86%), the alcohol is undoubtedly very present, but also the tropical fruits paired with the sweetness from the untouched oak barrel clearly appear. Unsurprisingly not a starter rum or easy sipper, but on the other hand still more aromatically diverse than expected. Worth trying.

Well this one was one of the highlights of this years german rum festival. For just 2 years this one shows off a lot of power 😜The 86% are well integrated for these high abv. This is lovely and must have for all high ester lovers. I think >200€ for this bottle is a bit to much!

Wow. Great strong HGML. You won't find anything like this anywhere else, so it's hard to rate. If you like Hampden, you're definitely getting something sensational here. In the nose directly a firework of HGML ester notes.In the mouth then surprisingly soft and round. You would hardly believe it, but the rum is well drinkable for its 86%. In the end, it lacks a bit of flavor to stand up to the alcoholic spiciness. Great thing, which of course has its price, but in my eyes is still ok, since the comparison possibilities are missing.

Tasted on the 11th GRFIn every respect an exception: sensationally well integrated alcohol, powerful Hampden nose, aroma steamroller on the tongue and the finish lasts almost forever!

Tasted on the 11th GRF and I must say I was very skeptical at first. 86% and just two years storage, that must be crass. In reality, then the big surprise, very round despite this framework data. An exciting bottling, but probably more a unicorn for collectors.

Auf dem 11. GRF probiert: trotz des hohen Alkoholgehalts ein überraschend komplexer und milder Rum. Hätte ich so nicht erwartet.
