Yet another great release from this bottler. They have done well on many releases with their finishes on many desstillers. The nose is fruity with varnish and light wood, vanilla and iodine. The palate is intense and fruity with spices and wood. Leave to rest for all the flavours to be released. You can also add a few drops of water. The finish is very long and fruity with wood and spices. Lovely rum and the price to quality is very good.

Super. Mal wieder gegrillte Ananas deluxe. In der Nase etwas alkoholisch. Am Gaumen massive Esternoten. Hier ist der Alkohol für mich nicht mehr so spürbar und das bei über 60 % alc. Sowohl in der Nase als auch am Gaumen kommt zusätzlich zur gegrillten Ananas eine süße Kirsche dazu. Sehr lecker. Im Direktvergleich zu anderen High-Ester Hampdens musste ich die 2007er etwas runterpunkten (-2).

Wie hat mich dieser Rum umgehauen beim ersten Kontakt! Eine Nase um darin zu versinken unglaublich intensiv und aggressiv und trotzdem harmonisch und klar: Ananas und Mandelcroissant sind die führenden Noten. Dazu kommen vergorene tropische Früchte und Lack und süße Klebstoff. Im Mund und Abgang dominiert weiter die leicht geröstete Ananas, spürbare Säure und dem Geschmack künstlicher Kirschbonbons. Den Rum habe ich noch minutenlang im Mund. Nichts für jeden Tag aber die volle Schönheit von High-Ester Rum! Leider schmeck anschließend jeder andere Rum fad.

Jung und wild in der Nase. Sehr geil im Mund. Wunderbare Kombination von Geschmäckern. Top.

Un Hampden au très bon rapport qualité-prix. Un peu trop aigre et acide à mon goût mais ça reste super agréable.

Volle Ladung Ester! Geiler Stoff mit Ecken und Kanten, komplex mit viel Frucht. Bleibt sehr lange im Mund und schmeckt lange nach. Macht Lust auf mehr!

Ein High-Ester-Kracher, den man sich mit reichlich Abstand zum Glas erriechen muss. Allerlei gelbe und rote, vergorene Früchte, gepaart mit Lösungsmittel/Lack. Langer und intensiver Abgang. Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden. Spannender Rum, der aber nichts für jeden Tag ist.

In der Nase sofort enorme Fruchtigkeit nach angesäuerter Ananas, Banane und viel Ester. Anfangs noch etwas Alkohol, aber nachlassend.... Am Gaumen zuerst eine Süße, dann ganz viel Ester, Lösungsmittel und Frucht (Ananas)! grandios! Nach und nach kommt etwas junges Holz, Vanille, vielleicht Anis zum Vorschein! Je länger er im Mund verweilt, wird er leicht adstringiert! Der hohe Alkoholgehalt ist super eingebunden. Dieses setzt sich auch im mittellangen Abgang fort! Hammer.., das ist genau meins!
