“A rum tasted at the WLP. The nose is powerful but balanced, pastry-like and appealing. The palate starts off very well, but retracts rather quickly, the aromas narrow and the finish is disappointingly short and not very sapid.”

“A Hampden that raises expectations and at the same time appeals to me through the beauty of its bottle: could it be the beautiful decanter syndrome? Sadly, yes. The Hampden nose is particularly pastry-like and greedy. You get the impression of tropical fruit and citrus compote or a kind of marmalade, which is rather pleasant to the nostrils. The funky side comes gradually and alternates esters, solvents, glue and varnish. A nice Hampden in prospect. The attack on the palate, however, is more reserved. The pastry and mellowness dominate, overtaking the fruit and medicinal flavors, which are less lively than usual. Roundness prevails over intensity, making for a rather linear, unspectacular rum. The alcohol is very well integrated. The finish is not only weak, but also of questionable length: the flavors in the mouth struggle to linger, apart from those pastry notes that have completely tamed the rum. Without being bad, this Hampden is far from spectacular. Unfortunately, the result does not live up to expectations: there is nothing to justify a cuvée at this price when other bottlers offer the same Vintage for two or three times less...”
