Mein erster 93er Hampden. In diesem Fall aus dem <>H-Batch (wohl eine der Besonderheiten dieses Jahres, in dem mit <>H und C<>H verschiedene Marks produziert wurden). Trotz der Verdünnung, die offensichtlich zu schmecken ist, kommt dieser Hampden mit einem recht komplexen Geschmack um die Ecke. Neben den klassischen Hampden-Aromen zeichnet sich diese Abfüllung durch starke florale Noten aus, die den ganzen neben der Hampden-DNA einen unbekannten, aber keineswegs unangenehmen Touch geben. Insgesamt aber als <>H zu identifizieren, der mit einigen Estern, aber eben nicht der vollen Breitseite die Geschmacksknospen umspült. In Fassstärke wohl eine Top-Abfüllung, so nur oberes Mittelfeld für mich.

Un très bon Hampden, assez doux et gourmand. La réduction est bien maîtrisé, bien qu'on y perde un peu de longueur. Ça n'est pas une bombe d'esters qui part dans tous les sens mais plutôt un Hampden équilibré et accessible. Au prix de sortie, c'était un magnifique Hampden de tous les jours.
