“Blind tasting 01.02.2024, 2nd rum of the evening Nose: But now Jamaica! Some kind of low ester, I would say. Palate: A little too sour for me, seems one-dimensional, but the alcohol is well integrated. But stick with Jamaica. An HGML? The Younger perhaps? Resolution: Wow, the latest GH, really? I would have expected more.”

“It's almost a tradition to get the Great House and then compare across the board. So far, of course, they are all very similar, even if the blended marks and their proportions differ slightly. The classic Hampden aromas can of course also be found here: Ester, vinegar, ripe banana, pineapple, lemon, a slight caramel note, varnish... But now a direct comparison with all its predecessors: 2023 vs 2022: Nose: Fuller, deeper and more balanced, less fermented, more caramelly. Seems more mature and much better overall. +++ Palate: more caramel, slightly more bacon, less fermented esters, rounder and more mature, better. ++ 2023 vs 2021: Nose: less vinegar, less fruity, stronger, more intense and slightly woodier, I like it a little better, + Palate: very similar, if not the same. - 2023 vs 2020: Nose: less fruity-sweetish, more powerful, slightly woodier, more intense esters, but less fermented. Different, but the same on. - Palate: more mature, less astringent and less bitter, rounder. + 2023 vs 2019: Nose: less sweet fruit, less marzipan, stronger and woodier, coarser esters, also different, but same on - Palate: less marzipan, less freshness, slightly riper, less woody, slightly better. + What can I say, after the cross-comparison, the new 23 GH seems to be the same and slightly better than my previous favorite 2020. Therefore an 8.3 overall Afterwards, I honestly had to adjust all the GHs downwards by 0.4 points, as there are now much better Hampdens, especially single casks. Now the ratio is right again.”

“Edit: Tasted it yesterday after the 1994 Crosstasting at DomM as a mixer with Coke as a nightcap. It can really do something and became a bottlekill. Franconian Tasting Gang For me, another beautiful Great Haus that fits seamlessly into the existing bottlings. A nice profile that I like at the moment.”
