Extremely well balanced Hampden. Fruits, cask, spices, a faint sweetness and a hint of bacon. Outstanding stuff!

Exquisiter Hampden und der ungekrönte König aus 1983. Verstehe wer kann und will, warum diese Abfüllung solange verfügbar war - klar, der Preis war nicht ganz zu vernachlässigen, aber parallel liefen diverse Single Casks zu absolut vergleichbaren, wenn nicht deutlich höheren Preisen über den (Zweitmarkt-)Tresen, die qualitativ in meinen Augen in einer gänzlich anderen Liga spielen.

Amazing delicious High Ester Hampden 😍 Funk Extreme! A lot of fruits in the nose, the more time you’ll give it the more fruits you’ll get. Important: This rum needs time to fully open min. 1 hour. In the Nose: Classic funky Hampden Profile, Ester, nail polish, glue, solvents, peaches, apricot, pineapple, rosted almonds, barrel, delicious On the palate: spicy, astrigent, funky, delicious and balanced with notes of Ester, tropical fuits, oak, tannins. The finish is long and dry, astringend with notes of oak, tannins, overripe fruits, pineapple and ester.

epischer Hampden! An der Nase der volle (vergorene) Früchtekorb mit Ananas, Banane, Kiwi, Stachelbeeren, dazu eine feine Joghurt-Butterplätzchen-Note. Und das alles in beeindruckender Weise zusammengebracht, ohne merklichen Fasseinfluss. Am Gaumen auch eher speckig, röstig denn Eichenfass. Im Abgang cremig, und irgendwie zwischen sauren Drops, Rauchspeck, Ananas und Marzipan.

Ich bin eigentlich kein Fan von überlagerten Hampden und schon gar nicht von überlagerten Esterbomben. Das erste was mir hier durch den Kopf ging: er ist so viel besser als der RA HD 89. Warum das?...man merkt ihm sein Alter schlicht nicht an. NIEMALS, hätte ich es für möglich gehalten, dass wir es hier mit 35 Jahre langer Reifung zu tun haben, mein Gefühl hätte mir eher 25 gesagt. Volle HD DNA, aber einfach nur rund und smooth. Wenn man den Kill Devil daneben stellt weiß man, was über dem Zenit bedeutet. Für mich ganz klar einer der besseren Hampden!

die entspanntere Version vom neuen 89er RA HGML. sehr geil nach wie vor und einfach mega Süffig. auch hier haben wir eine schöne Mischung aus keksteig, Ananas und Speck aber halt nicht ganz so viel Funk und Ester wie beim neuen. dazu überraschend wenig Holzig und Tannine für so einen alten Rum. sehr schöne Nummer. gefällt mir sehr!

Die 35 Jahre im Fass haben diesen Jamaikaner zu etwas ganz besonderem gemacht.

Ein echtes Geschmackserlebnis. Hier wird mit Aromen geklotzt und nicht gekleckert. Sehr froh, dass ich den probieren durfte.

Ester Ester Ester - nichts für schwache Nerven und braucht viel Zeit - 2 Stunden sollte man schon einplanen um dem tollen Stoff genug Platz zum Atmen zu geben - mega Erfahrung 😍
