“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 😉)”

“Interesting color! Clearly darker also than older (continental matured) bottlings. The nose is also surprising: I find much more sweetness associated with tropical fruits (banana!) Than sonnst at Hampden. In addition, a floral note comes to it, no disturbing alcohol, decidedly balanced. All together results in an intense but not brute, versatile Hampdennase - I really like! Palate: wow, lots of sweetness again, almost immediate salivation, and very pleasant barrel notes. Hard to believe this rum wasn't aged in a sweet wine barrel! Almost perfect impression and superbly integrated alcohol. The aftertaste leaves a little compared to the very high level of nose and palate is still long and intense and again the attribute "balanced" fits 100%. Yes, this is well over 90 points for me! The price charged is unfortunately unacceptably high.”
