A very nice drop not afflicted by the long aging. Very well balanced and complex.

Nase 92 - kann geschmacklich nicht ganz die hohen Erwartungen erfüllen. Fühlt sich im Mund etwas zu dünn für eine Top Bewertung an

Jour 10 du calendrier de Samples de Luxe. Les esthers et les fruits explosent au nez. La Jamaïque n’est pas loin. Du bois verni et comme un nez de masque de plongée. La bouche est étonnement douce et pourtant très expressive, à l’image d’un clairin haïtien. La finale est longue sur les fruits. Un rhum libre et fougueux mais pas classique, bien que j’ai reconnu Hampden. Je suis stupéfait de lire que ce rhum a 35 ans !! Je lui en avais donné 8. C’est seulement une fois le verre vidé que son grand âge se fait sentir pour la première fois. J’aime beaucoup.

Hampden, HGML, 35 Jahre. Das alles verspricht einzeln eine Menge Spaß, zusammen ergibt es eine Bombenkombi. Trotz 35 Jahren im Fass dominieren hier Früchte und zwar nicht einzelne, sondern ein ganzer Korb davon. Selbstverständlich hat das Holz auch seine Spuren hinterlassen, die Aromen und bitteren Töne sind jedoch sehr harmonisch ins Destillat eingebunden und verstärken die Komplexität, statt zu stören. Dieser Rum macht schon beim eingießen Spaß, spielt die volle Klaviatur auf der Zunge und bleibt noch lange präsent, wie man dies von Hampden gewohnt ist.

Very soft, very open aromas, interspersed with sweet flavours (all sorts of sweet flavours are evident) throughout. There's not a lot of punch, but the alcohol integrates well. After several tastings: sufficient ester sense. In contrast, Kill Devil had a lower flavor concentration, and the flavor could not be opened after being placed and oxidized, which was inconsistent with the alcohol strength
