CoR Hampden Jamaica No. 6 HLCF 1998 23yr 61,9%

RX14116 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 255 bottles Under 250€
“Complex, funky, ester-rich Hampden with balanced fruit and wood.”

The Jamaica No. 6 HLCF from Hampden distillery offers a robust estery profile with tropical fruit notes like banana and pineapple. With its vibrant ester-rich nose, it reveals hints of varnish and a signature funky aroma. The palate is greeted by a balanced mix of fruity sweetness, dry warmth, wood, and ester flavors, though some find the alcohol integration to be less harmonious. A dry, long finish highlights barrel-aged depth with subtle woodiness. This 23-year-aged cask strength rum delivers a hearty Jamaican character, appealing to enthusiasts of complex, funky profiles and a touch of tropical flair. Perfect for those who appreciate the traditional Hampden style with distinct esters and rich complexities.

“Relatively poorly integrated alcohol. Somewhat bitter .... Banana, pineapple and a few ester notes make themselves felt in the nose and on the palate .... but they don't make themselves comfortable. Tastes somehow-->like intended but not really "successful". Quite ok no more no less.”

“Got a sample of this rum for free from RumX. It’s a pot still distilled Hampden distilled in 1998 whereafter it’s continental aged for 23 years in an ex-Rum barrel before bottled in 255 bottles at 61,9%. Overall a great Hampden HLCF that’s complex, funky and esters rich.”

“#4187 This is not a bad Jamaica especially when looking at the price tag. A nice ester profile with lots of fruit and medium roasted wood profile. The palate is dry and warm and the finish long. Draws nice curtains and the empty glass has some polish and tar.”
