I expected a lot from this one but have to admit that I got a bit disappointed. It lacks the taste of the barrel, maturity and especially the complexity that Hampden is known for. The alcohol is very well integrated and it is a fruit bomb with nice acidity, but it's not a fantastic rum. Price does not match the quality.

Mein erster DOK. Absolut brachial und genau das, was man von so einem Vertreter erwarten würde. Ich mag das sehr und immer mehr zeigt sich, dass ich diese Esterbomben mit relativ geringer kontinentaler Reifung einfach nur geil finde. Klar, sowohl in Mund und Nase erschlägt einen das beinahe und natürlich kenne ich Abfüllungen, die noch etwas komplexer und ausgewogener sind, wie zb den FRC C<>H. Allerdings gibt es hier kaum etwas, was mich wirklich stört. Im Mund ist er sehr ölig und cremig, vollmundig, süß, kräftig und einfach sehr lecker
