How does this rum taste?

The Kill Devil (Whisky Barrel) Hampden 2001 is a solidly smooth, subtly funky rum with notes of citrus, almond, roasted pineapple, and a touch of smoke. Balance wise, the fruity, honeyed sweetness lightly dances with spicy and floral undertones. However, some found elements lacking complexity while others enjoyed its refined simplicity. Value for money debated due to its limited release & pricing.

“Often Fiji rum reminds me of Jamaican. Here, rather the other way around. The smoky and peppery barrel notes made it remind me of a South Pacific. Relaxed Hampden. Of the tasted three 01 vintages for me the best.”

“pretty relaxed 2001 <>H. On the nose yogurt, pastry, pineapple, the fermented fruit not super dominant at all. On the palate toasty-smoky.”

“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”
