WoW what an amazing rum 😍 The best of Hampden i ever had in the glass, so far. Nose: Wonderfull synergy of funk, ester, trop. fruits and glue. Mouth: The alcohol is perfectly integrated🫠Very delicious, balanced, complex rum, some nice lovely notes of overripe fruits and pineapple. Finish: Is quite long and fruity with some notes of the barrel with a lightly astringency. 🤤🤤

Ce Hampden C<>H est une force de la nature, un concentré aromatique brut et pourtant d’une complexité incroyable. Le nez est puissant et vif, intensément fruité et phénolique, avec quelques touches pâtissières très agréables qui arrondissent les angles. On retrouve en bouche un rhum épais, gras et huileux, très concentré sur les notes de fruits tropicaux, d’agrumes, quelques notes fermentées mais aussi une touche florale et épicée, puis du cuir. Les 68,5% sont relativement discrets. L’ensemble est d’une rondeur impressionnante. La finale poursuit le plaisir du funk jamaïcain avec également une touche d’olive, des tannins mais aussi du chocolat et une touche salée. Un rhum jamaïcain à l’état pur, extrêmement savoureux et équilibré. Du grand art.

Absolut brachialer High-Ester Hampden und einer der besten tropisch gelagerten Hampden bis heute. Wer auf die hochprozentigen Fruchtbomben im Glas steht, muss diesen Rum probiert haben.

Überreife Banane mit etwas süßer Ananas in einer Wolke aus den HD typischen vergorenen Früchten. Im Mund eine geniale und reine süße tropische Früchte die auf der Zunge jede Pore öffnen. Im Abgang kommt etwas rauchiges, sogar leicht nussiges dazu, wobei die Ananas präsent bleibt.

Die Nase haut einen trotz der 2h im Glas einfach um! Voll ins Gesicht, Ester-Peitsche vom Feinsten! Wow ist der würzig, fruchtig, vergoren, Banane, Ananas, Gebäck erinnert mich ein wenig an den tropischen HV Long Pond Teca 2005, nicht so brutal aber die Würzigkeit ist sehr schön vorhanden! Am Gaumen, wenn wundert es, ordentlich Ester, die Frucht und Würzigkeit kommen jedoch nicht zu kurz! Tropische Reifung deutlich zu schmecken, rau und mit Ecken und Kanten die einfach toll sind. Klassische Hampden-Noten kommen nach einer Weile schön im Mundraum hervor! Sehr langer Abgang - überragend! Ausgezeichnetes Destillat! Bislang kein besseren tropischen C<>H im Glas gehabt!

After trying this rum I promptly order a few extra for my shelf, that's how good it is in my mind. The nose is absolutely wonderfully fruity (overripe) with the normal funk and esters. The nose is there as soon as you open the bottle and it just gets better when resting. The palate lives up to the nose. A complex, full bodied and intense experience again with overripe fruits and ester and a hint of barrel in the back. The finish is like forever, sweet with tropical fruits and a hint of barrel.

Probiert als 5cl Sample. Schöne Hampden Nase. Ordentliche Portion Klebstoff und im Hintergrund ein schöner Fruchtkorb. Am Gaumen Ester und Marzipan, ein wenig metallisch und das alles super intensiv. Der Abgang hält sehr lang und es kommt Kakao/Dunkle Schokolade dazu. Dieser Rum macht richtig Spaß.

Le nez est pâtissier. La bouche confirme l'impression du nez assez pâtissière avec les fruits et les esters. La finale est superbe, entre amande et fruits tropicaux. C'est très réussi.
