Summary

The Younger LROK is a Jamaican rum from the Hampden distillery, bottled by Velier. It has an ABV of 47% and was aged for 5 years. It has a good quality-price ratio and fruity aromas such as banana, pineapple, almond and vanilla. Most reviews are positive noting its impressive results, good taste but the body and finish don't quite deliver on its promise. It is fresh, fruity, nutty with honey notes, citrusy green apple flavor and banana-pineapple combination.

Bel rum anche se l'overproof resta nettamente il migliore.

Wunderbarer Rum um in die Welt von Hampden einzutauchen. Durch die Reduzierung ein echter Easy Sipper.

Just received this one and jumped right I to it. Thinking about the cost this is a very good rum. Fruity and funky from the nose to the finish. I really like the clove that comes in the finish.

Angesicht des Preises und des Alters ein guter Rum ! Das einzige was etwas stört…für mich ist er zu leicht bzw. dünn

Jamaïcain typique, à l'odeur comme au goût. Vernis, esters, fruits très mûrs au nez. pas de grosse surprise en bouche, si ce n'est sa fraîcheur. finale courte, mais c'est un rhum jeune donc pas étonnant à mon sens. Sympa pour démarrer un line-up Hampden. Edit 05/02/2022 : a chaque fois que j'y reviens, je me dit que ce premier batch du Younger est une vraie réussite. Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de goûter quelque chose d'aussi bon au même tarif sur tout 2021. Punaise c'est bon pour démarrer une petite dégustation.

Sehr schön fruchtiger Geruch Im Mund samtig weich, erinnert auch vom Geschmack etwas an Honig. Gepaart mit einer schönen Frucht, Richtung Zitrus, grüner Apfel, aber auch Mango und die typische Ananas-Bananen-Kombination. Insgesamt eine frische Hampden Version, gefällt mir gut, ist allerdings etwas zu parfümiert für meinen Geschmack.

I have already tried the longer aged cousin and found it a bit overpriced in regards to value for money. This is a bit cheaper, and a bit more raw. The nose is quite present, I am sipping this on the balcony and smelled it from the glass on the table already when standing in the door. Ananas and Esters are very present, but also a surprising strong alcoholic part. All of this translates well onto the palate, but I found it quite sharp with the alcohol, honestly, for its "low" ABV compared to other barrel proof offerings. A minimal drop of water improved this a bit, the Ananas and a bit of rotten fruit get pronounced and the sharpness mellowed. It stays, however, very dry, what I think is a general characteristic of LROK. The finish is medium to long, and has finally a woody note.

Typische Hampden-Nase. Gut zugänglich und ausgewogen. Knusprig und funky im Mund. Wie gesagt, typisch Hampden und gut zugänglich.

mega Fruchtig, ölig und intensiv, dennoch ein leckerer easy sipper für einen jamaikaner. ein deutliches Upgrade zum vorherigen Hampden estate 46%. PLV top! hintenraus ist er etwas sehr trocken und holzig werdend, mit etwas kurzem Abgang, würde hier der Fruchtanteil die Oberhand behalten, hätte er über 80 Punkte bekommen. bin gespannt wie der in Drinks ist!

VSGB 😙 Nase: sehr fruchtig mit reifer Ananas, Zitrone und grünem Apfel und gleichzeitig vinegar, hat fast etwas von Schweiß oder älteren Socken. Dazu passt dann das Buttrige, leicht ins Käsige gehende. Er ist etwas seifig, Richtung Politur und hat eine herbe Süße von Ahornsirup, die sich aber doch hinter der Socke versteckt. Gaumen: weniger fruchtig als in der Nase, eher metallisch, bitter, mit Limettenschale und etwas Jod. Sehr trocken. Eine leichte Umami-Note mit etwas Pfeffer. Geht in Richtung Harz. Im mittellangen Abgang bleibt Limettenschale, Umami und etwas grüner Tee. Ganz am Ende sogar leicht Aal oder Makrele (kann das sein? Muss ich wann anders prüfen!) LROK ist ansich ein schönes Mark, jedoch scheint der hier durch sein junges Alter und die Reduktion auf 47% etwas unreif…

Hampden Light! Eigentlich die schöne Palette Hampden-Flavor, aber gleichzeitig auch sehr gemäßigt. Wirkt wie ein kleiner Junge auf dem Fahrrad, der den großen Jungs auf den Motorrädern Nachfahren will. Schönes Aroma, tolle Cremigkeit, perfekt um in die Hampden-Welt zu starten. Für Hampden-affine Rumtrinker damit wohl eher uninteressant.

2ème dégustation (à l'aveugle) après une 1ère où je n'avais pas apprécié plus que ça. Le nez attaque sur les solvants et le fumé puis après une bonne aération arrivent enfin des notes plus sympa d'ananas, de vanille du sucre et un côté beurré, de quoi faire un bon gâteau. En bouche on retrouve les mêmes notes gourmandes mais la banane a remplacé l'ananas et une fraîcheur mentholée englobe le tout et persiste sur la finale. Une 2ème dégustation qui me fais changer d'avis sur ce rhum, il avait besoin d'une longue aération.
