“Unique Hampden. Kiwi, leather notes. Complex, enjoyable. Collectors' gem.”

New Beginnings (June 03, 2023) by Velier and Hampden is a distinctive Jamaican rum. Users highlight its unique aroma of kiwi, with tropical fruit notes like pineapple, banana, and a hint of wood. The flavor profile is rich, with tastes of tropical fruits, particularly pineapple and banana, combined with subtle leather and a balanced sweetness. This limited release of 700 bottles is praised for its elegance and complexity. The lower ester and darker notes compared to other Hampden series make it versatile for beginners and connoisseurs alike. Despite some considering it less spectacular than the Great House Series, its unique kiwi and leather profile make it a worthwhile and enjoyable rum. Ideal for collectors and rum enthusiasts.

“Tasting 16.12 Personally, I wouldn't compare it with the GH series. I find it quite unspectacular. No rough edges. Not very exciting, ergo distinctive, flavor profile. I'm glad I didn't get a bottle of it. At least the alcohol is well integrated”

“Franconian Tasting Gang Completely undervalued for me. A super rum with its own profile. There's really no need to compare it with the Great House range. Only the price is a little too high. Which in retrospect costs it a point deduction.”
