Richtig klebrig wie Uhu vom Mundgefühl . Fast schon bissl zu extrem aber auch pervers geil.

Un rhum qui représente la quintessence de ce qui se fait en Jamaïque. Une véritable bombe aromatique au nez, très funky avec des fruits tropicaux mûrs, des agrumes, du bois, des épices, des solvants et des esters avec une pointe pâtissière qui confèrent à ce vieux rhum un superbe profil. En bouche, le rhum est intense et puissant, mais garde beaucoup d’arômes et de douceur pour son haut voltage. La finale est longue, légèrement fumée, mentholée et salée. Un rhum âgé, puissant, élégant, subtil et aromatique à souhait. Une merveille.

Dichte an Aromen ist super. Schmeckt mir sehr gut. Keine allzu klassisches Hampenprofil, kann aber absolut auf Top-Niveau mithalten

This one is woody but not overwhelming, with more flavors of other fresh fruits: peaches, oranges, berries (red fruits), and more acidic than any HJF. Very fresh, herbs and pastries at the same time (Nosing and palate), not too ripe, little jam and mulled wine. Very distinctive <>H, and all three are very different from the usual Hampdens. Good Hampden, but I prefer HJF 2002 for its flavor concentration and expressiveness. This one isn't easy to drink compared with HJF for nearly same body.

Bietet alles, was man erwarten darf - und das in Bestform. Tropische Früchte, Süsse von Gebäck und gebranntem Zucker, dazu Holz- und Würznoten. Im Mund und im Abgang wirken die Fruchtnoten etwas schwerer, was ein wenig abträglich auf die Frische wirkt. Aber diese Meckerei auf höchstem Niveau kann nichts daran ändern, dass es sich hierbei um eine vorzügliche Abfüllung handelt.

verkostet zusammen mit dem Rum Artesanal HD 1989. Der OB geht an der Nase mehr in Richtung Sherry/Essig. Der RA bietet dagegen die volle Ladung vergorene tropische Früchte und Kleber, das gepaart mit Butter-Croissant und Keksteig🤪 Am Gaumen sind bei beiden Essig und Rauchspeck sehr ausgeprägt. Den sehr langen Abgang dominieren Holz und Röstaromen, beim OB sogar in Richtung Caroni-Werkstatt.

Une salade de fruits avec une belle sucrosité et un peu des notes fumées agréables. Un grand Hampden.

Au nez on reconnais tout de suite le Hampden mais habillé d'une robe élégante et fruitée/boisée qui pourtant ne laisse aucun doute sur la puissance du produit à venir. La bouche est aussi vive que fruitée ! C'est étonnant et délicieux, chaud et puissant. Ça laisse des piccottis sur le palais encore plein de fruits boisés ! C'est intense et je suis vraiment pas déçu !! La finale est onctueuse et fruitée.

Very good hampden 😍 Alcohol is integrated very well. It‘s domaninat in the nose, but it soften up if you let it fill your mouth. This really need some time to fully open. I‘ll add later some drops of water… Update: It helps! Is there Kiwi and marzipan in the nose 🤔 In the nose: tropical fruits with esters (hampden like), oak (wood - barrel), Citrus, Strong solvents, polish, medicinal (you‘ll know it has more than 60%). On the palate: tropical fruits (lot of pineapple, banana, mango), oak. A dry, astrigend and funky, delicious, fully bodied feeling in the mouth. The finish: is medium long, dry and bitter. A lot of wood, roasted, tannins and astrigend feeling.
