A rum that doesn't fool anyone: DOK reveals a very funky profile, with an explosion of esters, glue and solvents, very ripe tropical fruits and citrus. There are also notes of spice, vanilla, marzipan and wood, as well as a touch of freshness. The palate is heavy, oily and very aromatic, carried by a fruity, tannic and slightly spicy frame. The finish, marked by tannins, is on the other hand very short, quite thin and light with some fruit, esters and spices scents. It is a real pity that such an aromatic rum initially ends on such a disillusionment. It is nevertheless an example of the aromatic power that Hampden has to offer.

Super funky chemical high ester rum. More on the chemical side than fruits or oak. Very interesting though. Hate or love it rum.
