Sehr schöne bitter Karamell, Pfirsich und Muskatnuss Note. Sehr harmonisch aber auch relativ bitter und säuerlich was für mich das Gesamtbild etwas trübt.

This one was a bit disappointing because I had hoped it was the best one. Better balance in the alcohol than the first one, so less time resting before you get the full profile. The nose is fruity with roasted wood, ester, vanilla and a light floral note. The palate is oily fruity with wood, spices, caramel and light solvents. The finish is long with roasted wood, vanilla and mango.

Solider kontinentaler Hampden. Das grosse Überraschungsmoment bleibt aus, was aber nicht bedeuten soll, dass Mängel im Geschmacksprofil zu verzeichnen wären. Der Rum bietet das, was man von einem guten Hampden dieses Reifegrades erwarten darf - nur eben nicht viel mehr. So treffen die obligaten überreifen tropischen Fruchtnoten (Ananas, Mango, Banane) auf prägnantes, röstiges Holz und würzige Schärfe. Im Hintergrund meine ich hier und da etwas fleischige Specknoten wahrzunehmen. Dazu eine unaufdringliche, aber erkennbare Süsse - ein passabler Querschnitt durchs Jamaika-Profil und ein schöner Einstieg ins Aromenspektrum von Hampden.

Un nez sur les fruits très mûrs et sur les esters (pour changer !). L'originalité vient du menthol et de la prune que je n'avais jamais croisé chez Hampden. La bouche est sur les fruits tropicaux et la vanille. C'est huileux et caramélisé. Cette bouche est douce est gourmande. La finale est plutôt courte sur les fruits tropicaux et le caramel au beurre. Un bon rum. L'alcool n'est pas très bien intégré au nez. C'est très gourmand. Le meilleur de la trilogie à mon goût.

For me this release are between two others from trilogy. Less intense than H, but still very good.

Ça manque clairement de funk dans ce HLCF !! Trop sage et consensuel à mon avis.. C'est bon et bien intégré niveau alcool mais rien d'extraordinaire.. Malgré tout un bon hampden qui permet de passer un bon moment..

Le HLCF à un nez, bien évidemment, également, sur les fruits tropicaux bien mûrs. On retrouve de la fraîcheur mentholée et des notes de boîte à confiserie. Le nez est très attirant. En bouche, le côté funky s’efface assez vite pour laisser la place aux fruits exotiques bien mûrs. 20 ans de vieillissement lui ont conféré une rondeur agréable. C’est sacrément bien intégré et gourmands ! La finale est belle mais pas suffisamment longue sur le sucre brun et la pistache. J’adore ce Jamaïcain tout en contrôle. Les années de vieillissement lui ont fait du bien.

HCLF --> Esters = 500-700 g/hLap Première bouche trop "sale" en lien avec les esters mais heureusement disparaît vite

Préférence pour ce HLCF vs <>H, les années lui donnent plus de souplesse. Le nez est excellent et envoûtant, belle sensation en bouche, sur le sucre brun et les fruits, le finish est cependant trop court comme pour le <>H.
