Very nice notes of tropical fruits, ester, nuts, honey and oak(barrel) in the nose. In mouth is more of a round, bitter, delicious but thin (body) mouth feeling. You’ ll find some notes of leather, nuts, oak, ester. The small finish is smooth and astringend with nots of vanilla and oak. All in all it’s a very nice rum, but it lacks in complexity, body and finish. It’s pleasant to drink!

Trotz Verdünnung ausreichend aromatisch in der Nase. Ester und Essig zunächst, dann Ananas, Stachelbeere und liebliche Zitrone. Dahinter etwas Honig aber auch ganz leicht Holz. Am Gaumen dann doch leider etwas dünn/verdünnt. Trotzdem lecker. Leicht metallisch mit Lakritz und Vanille und dann irgendwie flach speckig mit einer Umami-Nuance. Vielleicht auch etwas nussig in Richtung weißer Mandel. Im Abgang habe ich frisch geschnitten, grünen Ast mit Kamille. Der Grundstoff ist sicherlich gut. Wäre er nicht verdünnt, hätten wir hier einen deutlich besseren Tropfen.

Hampden Light!!! Tatsächlich sehr lecker aber kein besonderes Highlight der Hampden Destillerie.
