A well rounded and balanced release with wonderful balance between floral and herbal notes. Oily on the palate with a very long finish. The empty glass is also wonderful and floral with some chocolate and dried fruit.

HLCF 2010 HV vs. Rare Cask: HV is more vibrant and intense, while the RC clearly shows the longer maturation. The RC comes with more sweetness on the nose and more wood influence on the palate, As this also somewhat tames the funkiness, on the first go the HV is slightly ahead in my book. Second go: Rare cask on its own with some additional time in the glas. Above holds true. Still a small upgrade. Leaving the price out of the equation, this is good (also for drinking 😉)

First nose Fruity and some glue....all very restrained and flat.overripe mango,papaya some banana and pineapple. On the palate again see restrained everything there what you expect from a HD HLCF but everything somehow very flat and nothing special. In the mouth fruity but also some wood and slight bitterness. Finish rather short to medium .... for the called price just not good enough (for me)

I must say, I like this one very much! The 12 years of tropical aging in conjunction with the rather medium ester content have led to the fact that he has become very round. On the nose, therefore, cake batter and milk cream dominate. On the fruit, I got pineapple, banana, baked apple, citrus marmalade and floral notes. On the palate, citrus, oak barrel, cocoa. I could get used to this one, if only it were not for the high price 😩.

Beautiful Hampden HLCF, but in my eyes a whole corner behind the HV HD HLCF. The price is not comprehensible for me personally.

Very tasty HLCF and really a nice barrel. The price is completely exaggerated, but still tasty. I especially like the nose

Great rum. In the nose still discreet, in the palate and in the finish then great Hampden flavors with beautiful barrel influence. Find him very successful and the additional storage gives him something again.the price I leave times outside.
