“In my opinion, the Long Pond is pushed into the background here. You can hardly recognize anything of the Long Pond. Even after some time in the glass, it is only faintly discernible. The 2014 Hampden is typical of the vintage as far as I can remember, but doesn't stand out either. Pleasant blend, but unfortunately nothing more”

“The Whisky Jury präsentiert hier einen interessamten Blend aus Long Pond und Hampden. "Große" Schlücke machen hier mehr Spaß und lassen das volle Potential dieses Rums entfalten. Typische Jamaica Aromen, dazu Keksteig. Am Gaumen öliger und geschmeidiger, als erwartet, keine adsteingente Esterbombe, die den Mundraum mit Früchten aus tropischen Gebieten bombadiert. Schade, dass der Abgang sehr kurz ist, erinnert an den enttäuschenden Nine Zero Hampden 2014.”

“I was somehow not looking forward to this. With indie Blends i am somehow always doubtful. And here is a good example why. I really like the dominating Long Pond here. But it honestly feels as the Hampden ruined the show here a little bit. It stands next to each other and does not become a new third thing.”
