Leider eher ein schwächerer Vertreter des 98er Jahrgangs. Ein Profil welches ich sehr schätze. Benchmark ist für mich hier der RA HD 98 und TRC HD 98 „The Beast“. Habe die beiden neuen Abfüllungen von Colours of Rum direkt vergleichen und No.7 ist einen Tick schlechter als No.6 in meinen Augen. Die längere Lagerung hat dem Rum nicht gut getan. Weder in der Nase noch am Gaumen will sich richtiges HD 98 Feeling einstellen. Im Abgang noch etwas Holzigkeit. Preislich mit 220€ für 0,7 Liter auch sportlich angesiedelt. Davon wandert keine Flasche in meine Sammlung. Edition 6 bekommt 84 Punkte.

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.

Guter Rum, aber für einen 1998 HLCF kein Kracher. Besonders nicht zum aufgerufenen Preis. Die beiden (No6 und No7) sind sich sehr ähnlich. Die fast gleiche Farbe der Etiketten ist daher eigentlich fast schon lustig. Der 7er gewinnt für mich an der Naser und der No 6 am Gaumen

Round and not so aromatic Jamaica. Edit- I bet it is Hampden. My body always reacts with reflux when drinking Hampden :)
