Immer noch ein toller Unaged Hampden. Bleibe begeistert. Auch in der Direktverkostung gegen den 18 monate älteren Bruder.

In the nose, we find ourselves directly in the production department of pattex (it's glue for those who are not very handyman). It is ultra loaded in ester, there is rubber, solvents, nail polish ... But not that, we find some spices and exotic fruit as Hampden knows how to get it (melon and lemon peel). It is very fresh and fruity. What a nose !!!! The mouth is powerful and alcoholic but does not knock us out despite the 60.5%. It is rather surprising. We find the funky of Hampden and its esters, its olive and some very expressive fruit (green apple). It is intense, vigorous but the 60.5% are rather well integrated. It is even rather reassuring in the end.

Ungelagerter High Ester Hampden mit den typischen Aromen (Ananas etc.). Also nix Komplexes, sondern Mundvollester. Etwas mehr Kanten als sein gelagerter Bruder vom selben Abfüller.

Volle Breitseite an Ester und Lack gepaart mit schön überreife Banane! Im Mund sehr ungestüm, kräftig und herrlich funky wie es sich gehört. ABV gut vertretbar. Abgang ebenso fruchtig und überreif. Für mich eine richtig gute Sache und das ohne Fass.

Very punchy funky white rum. Fruity but also acidic. The sour note makes it a bit off for me. Interesting but I think it works better as a cocktail base than as a neat sipper.
