“A rum tasted at the WLP A very aromatic nose with overripe banana, pineapple and walnut. The palate is full-bodied, with lots of fruit, marzipan and almond. The finish is long and elegant, a real discovery.”

“RumX-Adventskalender 18.12.2023 Blind tasting: Hmm, when I opened the sample I first thought of Guadeloupe because of the sweetness. But then on the palate the esters came through quite clearly, although not bitingly. So I would guess a low ester Hampden. All right, now it was an HLCF. Does that still count as a low ester? 😉”

“Delicious and quite remarkable for only three years in the barrel, the wood is already quite noticeable here - but overall too close to many other Hampdens despite the undisputed high quality.”
