Least funky and well rounded nose. Brings cookie dough and marzipan to the table. For me somewhat the surprise winner out of my small cross tasting. Definitively the least funky. But on the other hand nicely combining fruity notes with cookies and honey creating the most balanced and enjoyable out of the bunch. If you are more into high esters, this is not the best for you. But then why would you go for <>H anyway..? 😉 So far I liked all out of the 2001 <>H batch. Looking at a close field: KD > TB > RC-M > RC

J'ai beaucoup apprécié le nez marqué par quelque chose comme l'orange confite et la traditionnelle pâte d'amande. C'était très doux, pas non plus la claque fruitée. J'ai moins accroché avec la bouche. J'ai plus de mal à la décrire. C''est plus simple, fruité et pâtissier mais cela manque un peu de complexité et de parfums je trouve. Ça reste un bon rum, mais on en connaît de nettement meilleurs chez hampden.

Oft erinnern mich Fiji Rum an jamaicanische. Hier eher umgekehrt. Durch das rauchige und die pfeffrigen Fassnoten hat es mich an einen South Pacific erinnert. Entspannter Hampden. Von den probierten drei 01 Jahrgängen für mich der Beste.

Zuerst typische High Ester Hampden Nase: Geröstete Ananas, Mandelcroissant und eher chemische Ester (Lösungsmittel). Im Mund kommt zu erst die Süße tropischer Früchte an, dann kommen würzige und florale Noten dazu - mich erinnert es an Pfeffer und Curryblätter. Trotz der 17 Jahre bleibt das Fass sehr im Hintergrund gegenüber dem 10 jährigen von TWB ist dieser dennoch deutlich runder, aber auch weniger spannend - ist ja auch das deutlich schwächere Mark. Diese leichte Bremse macht ihn für mich irgendwie unausgewogen.

Solider Hampden, sehr smooth, aber ohne den ganz speziellen Touch…

Kein außergewöhnlicher aber ein sehr entspannter Hampden, gefällt mir!

Nez charmeur mais bouche très empyreumatique et monolithique, sans être mauvaise, mais contraste un peu décevant. (semble s'ouvrir néanmoins sur quelque chose de plus fruité)
