Weltklasse Hampden Essenz!

Für 100 Punkte fehlt eigentlich nur das unmögliche, den Alkohol noch besser zu integrieren und dabei die „Geschmacksbombe“ in ihrer ganzen Komplexität zu erhalten. Best of Hampden! Tipp: Schmeckt aus großem Rotweinglas noch besser als in einem „normalen“ Tasting Glas.

Sehr schöner Hampden. Verdient sich Extrapunkte für die Alkoholintegration, die wahrlich beeindruckend daherkommt. Da kann so mancher verrückte Vogel unter den Single Casks einpacken.

Sampling this one right now and I have to admit that it's one of the most well balanced rums I have ever tried when it comes to ABV integration. Very fruity and lovely funk from nose to finish. There is a slight roasting note on the finish that I like a lot. Wonderful rum that is virtually impossible to get. Put my nose in the glass today and the smoke is very strong today :-)

Absolut top! Sensationell. Mein Favorit der heutigen Verkostung. Essenz eines Hampden. Für mich schwer zu toppen.

Der beste Jamaikaner den wir bisher im Glas hatten. Unglaublich rund und komplex. Tolles Obstbouquet. Phänomenal eingebundener Alkohol

so good, in these aroma and ester bomb(HGML, C<>H…), this one has the most impressive balance. Alcohol integrate very well. Especially, the finish is very very long among several HDs of RA so that I can get a lot of things from it. Just little too much bitter and astringency. kind of dull compared with C<>H.

Absolut genial … aber auch sehr intensiv. Wenn ich die Habitation Velier als Referenz nehme, dann würde ich blind sogar zwischen HGML und C<>H tippen. Der 2010 HGML ist süffiger und mehr Süßgebäck/Marzipan, der 2010 C<>H ist überreif und saurer. Ich find den hier sehr spannend, sehr rund, auch runder und mit mehr interessanten Holznoten die sich aber keineswegs aufdrängen. Das ist immer noch voller Hampden Fruchtkorb. Ein wenig vermisse ich die Süffigkeit und das Gebäck des 2010 HGML aber dennoch. Vielleicht trotzdem der beste Hampden. Und ja, ich werde ihn trotz Zweitmarktpreis noch im Mai Tai probieren.

ABSOLUTE GRANATE!💥🇯🇲😍 Geruch und Geschmack sind sehr nah beieinander: eine absolute Explosion: roher Keksteig, Gebäck generell, dazu flambierte Ananas, vergorene Banane, dezent geröstete Nüsse und Marzipan, Vanillemark, Buttercreme... im Abgang kommt dann je länger man den Rum genießt dezent Speck, Ahornsirup und eine sehr angenehme Tannin-Struktur dazu. Brett! Grandioses Bottling... Chapeau Dominik!!😍💥🇯🇲

verkostet zusammen mit dem Old Brothers 2001. Der OB geht an der Nase mehr in Richtung Sherry/Essig. Der RA bietet dagegen die volle Ladung vergorene tropische Früchte und Kleber, das gepaart mit Butter-Croissant und Keksteig🤪 Am Gaumen sind bei beiden Essig und Rauchspeck sehr ausgeprägt. Den sehr langen Abgang dominieren Holz und Röstaromen, beim OB sogar in Richtung Caroni-Werkstatt.

Was eine Bombe! Die volle High-Ester-Ladung, Klebstoff, Kokosnuss, Ananas und andere tropische Früchte. In der Nase leicht angebrannt (kein Rauch wie man ihn von anderen Abfüllungen kennt), am Gaumen etwas Keksteig, hinten raus sogar etwas krautig. Hampden-Essenz die nur wenige Kollegen auf Aufenhöhe findet und sich so schnell nicht aus dem Gedächtnis (sowie dem Geschmack) verabschiedet!
