Price to quality can be argued but the quality can't. A very fruity, intense and well balanced rum. I like the roasted wood on the profile, nicely balanced without being dominant. ABV is very well integrated.

Visit to Famille Ricci ! We had the great pleasure to taste this 39 years old Hampden ! This rum has been much talked about: is it really 39 years old? What I can say is that by drinking it, the question no longer arises: it remains only pleasure, curiosity and exploration. The main aromas that come out are overripe banana, tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), olive, brine but all in a very polished form, melted by time. The balance here is, I think, quite unique for this type of wine, of which I am not a big fan at the base.The alcohol is well integrated.
