Funky Hampden 🎉 Maybe a little young but nevertheless quite nice and round given ester content and ABV.

Reich an Estern, aber auch noch sehr jung. Dadurch fehlt ihm ein wenig die Komplexität und die Süße seiner älteren Brüder. Nachgeschmack ist auch recht kurz.

Another great rum from this bottler. Fruity from nose to finish and has a light touch of wood from palate to finish. Nice and funky release at a good price when released.

Bon hampden malgré qu'il soit très jeune. Fort en ester mais l'alcool pourrait être mieux intégré. L'aération lui fait le plus grand bien.

Pas le plus réussi des Hampden Habitation Velier mais quand même un Hampden sérieux. La finale n'est pas des plus agréable et l'intégration pourrait être meilleur pour le mettre au même niveau que certains autres. Il aurait peut être mérité deux ans de plus en fût. L'ouverture de la bouteille lui fait un bien fou

Zeigt im Vergleich zu den älteren Hampden-Vertretern in der Habitation Velier-Serie weniger von der schweren Süsse und zeigt zudem noch zu forschen Alkohol, was ihn etwas abfallen lässt. Solider Hampden, was insgesamt immer noch zu einer sehr guten Bewertung reicht - gerade bei den Hampdens gibt es aber noch eine andere Güteklasse, in der diese Abfüllung nicht mitspielen kann.

Un des meilleurs hampden !! Très patissier et alcool très bien intégré

Ganz netter Hampden aber für mich zu jung und zu teuer. Schmeckt vor allem echt intensiv nach Marzipan, gegrillten Limetten, Bittermandeln, Honigbanane, Kapernlake und Jungem Holz, dennoch fehlt es mir hier an etwas mehr Tiefgang. Lecker und überraschend süßlich aber dafür allemal.

Die Früchte sind hier eher von der sauren Sorte (Limette, Ananas). Trotz des recht hohen Ester Gehalts sehr mild und weich.

After 1hour in the glass it's becoming wonderful, the "too young" of the begining is gone
