“Yummy, this is a nice Hampden and the price to quality is very good. The nose is fruity with esters and varnish from the start with caramel and light grass trailing. The palate is well balanced, warm and peppery with wood, fruits, ester and light grass. The finish is very long and warm/peppery with wood and pineapple. The finish is lightly dry, something I really like in this release.”
