Vor drei Jahren habe ich ihn noch gefeiert als Offenbarung im Mai Tai und jetzt bekommt er nur noch 76 😂. Angesichts des Preises aber in meinen Augen ein must have für die Hausbar, vor allem wenn man noch nicht zu viele Jamaikaner zu Hause hat. Mittlerweile im Mai Tai auf meiner Skala auch nur noch 2/5 🇯🇲.

Ich bin echt kein Hampden-Fan, der hat mir aber gar nicht so schlecht geschmeckt. Und das 30€ die Flasche…

The finish is quite long and dry. If you should have just one Navy strength rum in your bar, this is the one.

yeah this stuff is legendary. loads of esters, the nose is great. on the palate very spicy and rather dry also rather sharp. so I dont really like it neat, but for cocktails it's amazing. Especially for the price!

Some classic Hampden notes noticeable on the nose. Palate is very much dominated by dark notes like burnt sugar, chocolate, wood and some spices.

Un jamaïquain pur souche !

Fantastic value for money. Yes it tastes young but has great balance, flavour and holds its own as a sipper against much more expensive bottles.

This is an absolute gem of a rum for the price. Pot stilled blend of 2 funky Hampden rums. Although it can be drunk neat, most will want to use this rum for a cocktail as it’s quite alcoholic and prickly when drunk meat.

All my Tastings and Scores are purely based on “Rums under £50”. I rarely look at Rums over £50 for my YouTube.

Find ich pur nicht gut zu trinken, wirkt sehr unrund. im fruchtigen Cocktail werde ich ihn noch Mal probieren.

Jamaïcain à l'alcool mal intégré. Ça arrache le palais, la langue, la gorge, le larynx et l'estomac. Ce qui a quand même tendance a pas mal gâcher l'expérience...
