“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.”
