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 😍😋

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.

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.

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

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

Wahnsinns Hampden! Brutal und komplex...

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

Un Hampden très intéressant avec beaucoup de caractère. L'alcool pourrait être mieux intégré.

für 6y jung und 68,5% extrem mild und süffig. ganz großes Kino! geschmacklich wie geruchlich Same same: überreife Ananas und Banane, vanillemark, viel Ester aber nicht zu viel, Brioche und keksteig, salziges Honig-Croissant mit grapefruitmarmelade. extrem geil und gefährlich süffig !⚡
