Roots Hampden Jamaican Rum OWH 2012 10yr 58,3%

RX16004 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 229 bottles Under 100€

The Jamaican Rum OWH from Hampden, bottled by Roots, stands out with its unique balance of aromatic richness and approachable flavors. This 10-year-old rum offers a captivating nose of tropical fruits, esters, pineapple, and subtle spicy notes, with hints of nail polish. On the palate, it reveals a delightful mix of tropical fruits, olives, esters, and a distinctive salty, roasted flavor. Users appreciate its well-integrated 58.3% ABV, making it surprisingly smooth for its strength. The rum is notably fruitier than expected for an OWH mark, with a medium to long finish that harmonizes brine and a touch of woodiness. Ideal for those who enjoy a complex, yet balanced Jamaican rum experience. Limited release with only 229 bottles available.

“Very spicy. Not a typical HD ... ok low Ester was clear but he comes across very different. I'm a little bothered by the smoky especially when he has breathed well ... Otherwise little fruit alcohol very concise.”

“OWH there are not so many high class ones. So this one comes in handy. Now for midsummer, I prefer the low-esters anyway. Clearly recognizable as a Hampden on the nose. On the palate, it seems very light and playful for a high-proof Hampden. In the back I have light mint and toasted barrel notes. Nice bottling, but also nothing with which you can win prizes.”

“Of course, you can't expect an ester bomb at OWH. However, I like the profile of the root surprisingly well. On the nose, yogurt, grilled pineapple and baking mix dominate. On the palate, burnt sugar, barrel, mocha. The 58.3% is very well integrated. Really tasty stuff! Best thanks to Paris for the split!”
