Offers everything you would expect - and in top form. Tropical fruit, sweetness of pastry and burnt sugar, plus wood and spice notes. In the mouth and in the finish, the fruit notes seem a bit heavier, which is a bit detrimental to the freshness. But this grumbling at the highest level can not change the fact that this is an excellent bottling.

Update nach Tasting gegen Plantation Rum Addict HD 2001. Ich bleibe bei 90, brutales Brett. Hampden <>H Ostertasting Verkostet mit RX 88 & RX 771 RX 9659 Old Brothers Hampden 2001 <>H 61,6% Nase - die krasseste Nase der drei Mund - Der Eindruck der Nase bestätigt sich. Nicht so viel Hampden Essenz wie ich es beim Velier Khong habe oder TRC Abgang - der präsenteste der drei Rating 90

A fruit salad with a nice sweetness and a bit of pleasant smoky notes. A great Hampden.

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

This is a very, very nice release. Both nose and palate are intense even when rested but the overall balance is amazing. ABV integration is near perfect and I like the ester and fruity profile.

OMG! Even if I dont like Hampden, this is Hell good!

A rum that represents the quintessence of what is done in Jamaica. A real aromatic bomb on the nose, very funky with ripe tropical fruits, citrus, wood, spices, solvents and esters with a hint of pastry that give this old rum a superb profile. On the palate, the rum is intense and powerful, but retains plenty of aroma and sweetness for its high voltage. The finish is long, slightly smoky, minty and salty. An aged rum, powerful, elegant, subtle and aromatic as one could wish. A marvel.

Really sticky like Uhu from the mouthfeel. Almost bissl too extreme but also perversely horny.

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.

Heute nochmals verkostet und schwer begeistert! Die Tropische Reifung sehr präsent... sehr Fruchtig und schwer. Ölige Konsistenz...im Mund . Für mich einer der ganz großen.

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.

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.

Une explosion de fruits passés, les esters, le côté pâtissier et suave, on en redemande encore et encore… Une finale interminable sur les fruits tropicaux bien mûrs !

Huge Hampden, absolute fruit bomb, extremely balanced, complex and powerful at the same time

Surprisingly reminiscent of Long Pond TECA 2007 / TECC. Very rich and concentrated
