“Nach langer Rum-Pause, im verregneten aber wunderschönen Schweden sitzend, scheint mir ein reifer HD genau das Richtige ☺️ Nase: oh wie schön sind feine Ester. Angenehme Lösungsmittel mit Fruchtessig und süßlicher Ananas, Ananas-Marzipan. Dazu feine Zitrone. Leicht buttrig. Alles gut eingebunden, vielleicht etwas zu reduziert, hätte etwas mehr Fassstärke verdient. 8,7 Gaumen: angenehme Ester vorne und deutlich speckig. Dazu fruchtig-säuerliche Ananas mit Zitrone im Abgang. Süßliches von Ananas-Marzipan. Wirkt leider etwas dünn, ich hätte ihn nicht auf 50% verdünnt. Dadurch kommt noch etwas herbere Muskatnuss hinzu. 8,6 Hampden ist immer schön. Hatte aber schon bessere 93er im Glas; liegt sicherlich auch an der Verdünnung.”

“My first '93 Hampden. In this case, from the <>H batch (probably one of the peculiarities of this year, in which different marks were produced with <>H and C<>H). Despite the dilution, which is obvious to taste, this Hampden comes around the corner with quite a complex flavor. In addition to the classic Hampden flavors, this bottling features strong floral notes that give the whole an unfamiliar, but by no means unpleasant, touch in addition to the Hampden DNA. Overall, however, to identify as <>H that washes over the taste buds with some esters, but just not the full broadside. At cask strength probably a top bottling, so only upper midfield for me.”
