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

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.

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