Au nez, on se retrouve directement dans le département production de chez pattex (c’est de la colle pour ceux qui ne sont pas très bricoleurs). C’est ultra chargé en ester, il y a du caoutchouc, des solvants, du vernis à ongles … Mais pas que, on retrouve quelques épices et du fruité exotique comme Hampden sait nous en sortir (melon et zeste de citron). C’est très frais et fruité. Quel nez !!!! La bouche est puissante et alcoolique mais ne nous assommes pas malgré les 60.5%. C’est plutôt surprenant. On retrouve le funky d’Hampden et ses esters, son olive et du fruité bien expressif (pomme verte). C’est intense, vigoureux mais les 60.5% sont plutôt bien intégrés. C’est même plutôt rassurant au final.

Hogobomb! Love this rum, always have a spare. An allrounder, great in a mix, cocktail or as a sipper

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.
