Hampden de grande qualité ! Un nez super gourmand , fruité avec juste se qui faut d'empyreumatique une balance parfaite entre gourmandise et sérieux avec une belle puissance. La bouche et dans le même profil que le nez avec toujours cette balance et cette équilibre entre puissance, gourmandise, funky empyreumatique. Une finale longue qui s'estompe sur des fruits tropicaux, des épices toujours cette brioche vanillé ultra gourmande et ce petit côté fumé, caoutchouc... Une très grande réussite un rum super bien exécuté, j'aime bien !

Wow. Bei meiner persönlichen top 10 auf jeden Fall dabei. Sauber ausgewogen. Klasse rum. Nicht zu viel und auch nicht zu wenig Prozente.

Finally opened my bottle! Very lovely round good balanced rum from Hampden. Fruity ester from start to the end with some nice complexity. Alcohol could be intergrated better.

80% OWH 2013 20% <>H 2017 Im direkten Vergleich mit ‘19, ‘21 und ‘22: am fruchtigsten in der Nase, mehr Ananas, am dunkelsten zusammen mit dem 22er, etwas fruchtiger und karamelliger als die anderen am Gaumen. Natürlich aber sehr ähnlich dem 2019er... in der Nase feine, zurückhaltende Ester, leicht vinegar. Etwas fruchtiger und lieblicher als der Rote. Mit einem Hauch Honig. Etwas karamellig Am Gaumen spürt man die leichten Ester (schätze beim angegeben Verhältnis Ester von ca. 250, also LROK Niveau). Beginnt mit einer leichten Schärfe, macht einen etwas salzig-bitteren Bogen, geht ins fruchtig saure süße (Ananas) und landet beim Anis. Wirkt runder und cremiger als der rote. Creme Brulee sogar. Auch mir gefällt der Grüne einen Tick besser…

This is a wonderful Hampden Estate that doesn't disappoint. This rum shines in its own way and has its own personality compared to other rums from Hampden. There's no doubt that this is a Jamaican rum with the funky mixture of flavours. A wonderful complex nose the tramscends into an explosive palate with a long well balanced finish. Rest for at least 15 minutes and you may want a few drops of water to limit the initial burn from the alcohol. Retasting this one after i got 4 more bottles, still an amazing rum.

Both the 2019 and the 2020 Great House are really grate 😜 Different but both really good. This one is a bit darker and sweeter. In my audio related words this 2020 bottle has more base and the 2019 more treble.

Richtig toller, ausgewogener Hampden. Gefällt mir super! Fasst schon gefährlich süffig… 😏

Ich finde den Great House klasse, schon beim first Batch ging mir das so. Für mich ist dieser Hampden einfach der beste Allrounder und ein klassischer "Every Day Rum" mit einem Super PLV. Er ist ausgewogen, elegant und ganz einfach sau lecker

Most esters and punch on the nose out of the trio. Also very intense on the palate but nicely blended and round overall.

Er ist ein wenig anders als der 2019er aber nicht besser oder schlechter. Toller Rum. Easy Sipper. Und das für 89€ pro Flasche. Bin froh, dass ich paar Flaschen zum UVP bekommen hab.

Dürfte die Messlatte für einen guten Jamaikaner sein. Lecker und top PLV.

Quel pied, quel puissance mais diablement bien équilibré.
