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

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.

Wunderbar um in die Welt von Hampden einzutauchen.

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.

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.

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.
