How does this rum taste?

A bold, ester-rich expression from Hampden with punchy tropical fruit notes and a dry, long finish. Offers complexity but falls short on depth for some, with its high price point sparking debate. A spirited, yet divisive Jamaican treasure.

“This Hampden is not bad, but for me it is an absolute disappointment! Smells and tastes like a Hampden light. It fails to deliver, especially on the palate and in the finish. The alcohol is poorly integrated.”

“Nose on this bottling is significantly less fibrant and engaging compared to the TRC and Sponge ‘98s. More muted yet with sharper edges to it.”

“Unfortunately, expectations were not met here either. Alcohol better integrated here than in No.6. In addition to tropical fruits and minimal marzipan, there is somehow a salty note on the nose (yes, you can smell salt 😅🤣) but that somehow bothers me here. Alcohol is also quite okay on the palate. But there is less fruit here ... more wood and bitter notes. More of an easy sipper ... if it weren't for the price.”
