This is a lovely, round LROK from Hampden 🤤 Sooo delicious, funky, sweet… with all the solid edges of Hampden. The 69% are integrated very well, blind i would say it has approx 50%.

Die Nase ist der Hammer und extrem komplex. English Breakfast tea trifft auf Bananepüree, Dörrpflaume und ordentlich Holz mit etwas Zartbitterschokolade und Toffee. Für 69% sehr harmonisch. Geschmacklich dann eine absolute Explosion aus Frucht, Würze und schönen intensivern Holztönen, wenn das Ding nicht Minimum 80% tropisch gereift ist weiß ich auch nicht. Sehr intensiv nach Bananenbrot mit Zartbitter Kuvertüre, gerösteten Kokoschips, Rum-Rosinen, gebrannten Mandeln, Leder und Honig, Dörrpflaume und Dattel, Piment und dunklem Karamell. Grandios und unfassbar lecker und süffig trotz 69%!!!

Wirkt insgesamt etwas dumpf, die klassische Frische von Hampden fehlt mir etwas. Trotzdem süffig mit schweren Holznoten und schön austarierter Süsse.

Nicht viel Ester, aber viel holzigen Noten. Schmeckt fast tropisch gereift!
