Third tasting and still really good, actually a bit better than last tasting. I like the rubber notes at the end. ————— Fourth tasting and bumping it again, really really good.

Nice Hampden. Nice toasty aromas. More ester than the hampden estate overproof and also drier in the finish.

Very good Hampden. Great balance between fruit/wood/spices. Not overly funky. Baked banana. Pineapple obviously. Not overripe but still on the fresh side. Pretty much flawless. Second try. Still love it.

A very good hampden easy to access and very round. A small delicacy

On the nose a lot of pineapple and fermented banana flows in, the alcohol is also very noticeable In the mouth is first a sweetness and then the tingle of alcohol ! Then a slightly peppery note and young wood. It is slightly astringent ! Gradually develops a light banana flavor and some vanilla! Delicious!In the finish remains the spicy, paired with banana and vanilla.

The Hampden profile is definitely there but the esters are just missing here.

Not an ester bomb, but well tuned. Can be drunk very pleasantly for over 60% alc. Compared to the LROK without a long wait round and for me the price-performance winner.

Die Fruchtnoten fehlen, aber schöne Ester, sehr cremig rund.

LFCH = around 200 ester --> light Rich nose, discreet solvent, fine woody, ripe fruits, brioche, raisins = refined Jamaican nose due to the low ester content, not too abrupt and marked as in the C<>HMouth a bit more disappointing, a bit acidic, less richLong and greedy finish

Solid tropical LFCH and a good daily sipper! Uncomplicated, not overwhelming but not boring at all. Is very much Hampden in it and for daily use very well suited ;-)
21 May 2020
Clearly less 'dramatic' than other Hampdens and therefore felt 'light-footed'. A Jamaican, which you can also just drink without fading everything else, but which is still no less exciting. The unexpected very natural raspberry note also knows how to please. Top!

Fruits funky caramélisés avec des notes de solvant mais pas beaucoup d’esthers. Un très bon rhum qui mérite beaucoup d’aération.

The nose is very fine and fresh, it is rather floral in addition to the typical markers of Hampden (banana). We find the usual frame of a LROK. The nose is typically artificial. In mouth it is powerful and funky as one pleases. It is heavy on tropical fruits (pineapple), leather and a little coffee. The finish is intense on spices and some empyreumatic notes. The conclusion is simple, real Hampden, no frills, as we like to blow our taste buds ... but a bit conventional.

Pâte pâtissière gourmand au nez et en bouche , il pourrait faire un bel accord avec une galette frangipane.

It's the perfect definition of what is hampden. Not the most complex rum from the distillery, but one of the tastiest, very funky, and generous. Exotic fruits marmalade, beautiful texture... Gorgeous Hampden!

Certes, jeune mais très parfumé, très bon hampden encore une fois. C’est vrais qu’on sent un peu l’alcool au début mais après 30 mins d’aération ça va beaucoup mieux. J’ai bien aimé 🤩😍

While not an ester bomb, Hampden’s flavor profile is still in full force here. Plenty of overripe fruitiness, especially pineapple, mesh well with a fair bit of spice—more so than I’d expect given the younger age and otherwise mellower cask-derived notes. It drinks quite well for its proof, and It’s a bottle I’m certainly looking forward to spending more time with.

Richtig geiler Einstiegs-High-Ester
18 April 2023
A cracking rum. Leads with the typical Hampden notes and leaves you wanting more. At the first instance all wood and leather bound books moving to more tropical pineapple and banana. Deep complex mouth with many layers and esters over sugar leading to a long and satisfying finish. Really top notch sipping rum

Another great Hampden! Really intense flavors that hit you like a freight train. Tastes refined with a decent amount of age. The high proof really concentrates the flavor perfectly. This rum suits my palette very well.

A more serious Hampden, not as funky but no less complex than others. With a tremendous angels share, the flavors of tropical fruit and wood are exceptionally concentrated in this distillate. It’s warm and even a litttle sharp in the mouth like a spicy pepper. Very nice to sip.
