This one is even more floral than the previous one and also fruity and pretty well balanced. Intense and oily on the palate and the empty glass is really nice after an hour and I can find licorice in it.

Un Hampden Single Cask avec le mark HLCF, dont la puissance aromatique se fait ressentir au nez. On y retrouve un concentré de notes phénoliques, de saumure et de fruits exotiques. Une pointe d’olive fait également irruption. Le côté funky est toujours présent en bouche avec quelques notes épicées et boisées très légères. La finale est de longueur moyenne, asséchée par les tannins et le cuir. L’ensemble est rond, sympathique et maîtrisé. Un bon profil d’Hampden, mais loin d’être exceptionnel, en particulier si l’on tient compte du prix.
