“While I like the nose very much - more vibrant and fruity vs. HV LROK - the mouthfeel is just a bit too harsh for my liking in this one. Very curious to see older bottlings of the HES. With more age, I imagine this to be a very easy going sipper.”

“I am surprised! Nice tropical low Ester Hampden with good complexity, abundant fruit, light marzipan notes, rather on the astringent side.”

“Wow, they really crammed a lot of flavours into this very young rum. Very fruity with nice herbal and floral notes. The flavours just creeped across the table from opening the sample and pouring it into the glass. The empty glass has flavours even the day after sampling.”
