War mein Einstieg in tropisch gelagerte Fruchtesterbomben und absolut Liebe auf den ersten Schluck. Eigentlich ja sogar auf den ersten Atemzug, den schon beim Öffnen der Flasche bahnt sich das Bouquet unweigerlich den Weg in den gesamten Raum. Für den Ausgabekurs schon unvorstellbar hohe Qualität.

This is true love💖 🥃😋 Owning this bottle makes me so happy. I have a hard time grasping how to to find a better rum from any other than Hampden. Yes, the C<>H is better but this is really close. - had to taste this rum too today as I just got the new HLCF Classic and this rum is still on a totally different level. just love it 😍😋

Un rhum redoutable de complexité pour son jeune âge. On retrouve au nez les notes classiques du funk jamaïcain avec les fruits tropicaux très mûrs, les agrumes, les notes phénoliques avec les esters, les solvants et la colle, mais aussi des notes boisées et épicées qui agrémente le tout. En bouche, c’est un véritable festival de fruits tant ceux-ci investissent le palais. Puis viennent les notes phénoliques, les notes florales puis les épices et le bois. C’est un véritable concentré aromatique, au degré extrême et étonnamment rond, doux et complexe. La finale est très longue et persistante avec notamment une touche saline très subtile qui donne de la profondeur en bouche. Un rhum lourd, intense et d’une élégance rare.

In der Nase kommt er zwar kräftig aber noch vergleichsweise mild daher. Im Geschmack entfaltet sich dann die volle Esterbombe der man leider auch den Alkohol durchaus anmerkt. Neben den intensiven tropischen Fruchtnoten auch etwas Himbeere und im Abgang auch angenehme Holznoten. Für 90 und mehr Punkte fehlt eine bessere Integration des Alkohol was bei der kurzen Lagerung natürlich schwierig ist. Krass geiler Mai Tai Rum.

Despite the high proof this is a very well balanced rum. You can add water, but you don't have to, that's how well this rum is balanced.

Cross-tasting mit RX10664 & RX11980 Gebe noch mal einen Punkt mehr auf Basis des direkten Vergleichs.

Wow, tolles tropisches Hampdenbrett. Ein Rum wie ein Gedicht mit Höhen und Tiefen.

Der HLFC Hampden bietet eine tolle fruchtige Nase (Banane, Mirabelle, Zitrus). Geschmacklich kommt Ester und Alkohol relativ stark durch.

Wahnsinns Hampden! Brutal und komplex...

Auch hier: geile tropische Reife. Kräftig, intensiv, komplex, überreifer Früchtekorb, Vanille, Himbeere. Hampden in Reinform.

Bombesque. Concentré de ce que Hampden peut faire. Bon, les 68° sont là donc à ne pas mettre entre toutes les mains. Mais qu'est ce que c'est bon ! Je pense qu'il en restera quelque chose dans mon palais demain. Longueur interminable.

Jung und ungestüm passt am Besten zu dem Rum! Der Alkohol verdeckt anfangs viel des Potentials, aber nach einiger Zeit, zeigt er sein wahres Gesicht! Klasse
