“Blind tasting: after 5 minutes, put the cap on, nose in deep: slightly acidic, very light ester, nut, various herbs. After 20 minutes of breathing, the ester has intensified a little and is joined by chocolate, wood, grapes & berries with a minimal sweet note - reminds me a little of Ritter Sport Rum Grape Nut. Then pineapple, esters, herbs, medicine and oak on the palate, which leads into the finish, where the Ritter Sport is again to be found, with a faint bitter sweetness. In my view, a Hampden, but not as it should be. Firstly because of the weak ester (presumably from 2000) and secondly because of the chocolate-nut-grape/berry associations. At first, judging by the nose, I would have put the rum after Long Pond. But when the ester became stronger and the herbs faded into the background and were replaced by fruit/pineapple, I couldn't argue with Hampden. Behind this rum I suspect the Adelphi Hampden 2000 with 15 years and 54.3%. All in all, it's a really good rum, but unfortunately it can't keep up with the Jamaican world that I know - but perhaps it doesn't have to, as it is simply a little different and therefore has a unique selling point. Perhaps also a good rum to introduce newcomers to Hampden. 83 points”

“Blindverkostung: nach 5 Minuten Deckel drauf, tief die Nase reingehalten: leicht säuerlich, ganz leichter Ester, Nuss, verschiedene Kräuter. Nach 20 Minuten atmen hat sich der Ester ein wenig verstärkt und dazu kommt Schokolade, Holz, Trauben&Beeren mit einer minimalen süßen Note – erinnert mich ein wenig an Ritter Sport Rum Trauben Nuss. Am Gaumen dann Ananas, Ester, Kräuter, Medizin und Eiche, die in den Abgang übergeht, wo wieder die Ritter Sport zu finden ist, mit einer schwachen bitteren Süße. Aus meiner Sicht ein Hampden, aber nicht wie er im Buche steht. Zum einen wegen dem schwachen Ester (somit vermutlich aus 2000) und zum anderen wegen den Schoko-Nuss-Traube/Beeren Assoziationen. Im ersten Moment, der Nase nach, hätte ich den Rum nach Long Pond gelegt. Als der Ester aber dann stärker wurde und die Kräuter in den Hintergrund gegangen sind und durch Frucht/Ananas ersetzt wurden, war Hampden für mich nicht wegzudiskutieren. Hinter diesem Rum vermute ich den Adelphi Hampden 2000 mit 15 Jahren und 54,3%. Summa summarum ein wirklich guter Rum, der aber leider nicht mit der Jamaika Welt, die ich kenne, mithalten kann – aber vielleicht auch zwangsläufig nicht muss, da er einfach ein wenig anders ist und dadurch auch ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal hat. Vielleicht auch ein guter Rum, um Neulinge an Hampden ranzuführen. 83 Punkte.”
