This latest Great House release is a mix of two marques: 80% OWH (low ester rum distilled in 2013), and 20% (high ester rum distilled in 2017, long fermented using wild yeasts and dunder). The base is molasses and cane juice, pot distilled. This Hampden shows up at a nice 59%ABV.
On the nose there is funk, alcohol, some bitterness, oak, over ripe pineapple, cherry, strawberry, kiwi and orange. Some water brings out some caramel.
The palate is creamy, ginger, pineapple, strawberry, raspberry, and dry.
The finish is dry, oak, and pepper.
Overall a very well put together and balanced Hampden rum.
Hampden has a unique nose and taste you can’t really describe. It is so special and so damn good!!
The Great House is exactly what i expected... fantastic!!!
Classic fruity funky nose and taste with burnt banana and vanille.
It minds me a bit of the new Hampden Estate 8 years old, but this is a bit more complex. A mix of 20% <>H 2017 and 80% OWH 2013 with ABV 59. - Go Try It!.!
I love this bottle. This is not the first hampden that I have tasted, but this is far better than any other
Naprosto parádní rum, kde není tak moc jamaiky v chuti, ale je zde spoustu ovoce a květin. Určitě je více cítit estery než verze 2019, ale i tak naprosto bozi.
Nose : Amazing. Smell really good.
Taste : 59° proof. It is surprisingly strong on the first sip, it burns.
But once you learned to drink it slowly, with very small sips, all the flavours are revealing. Very long lasting. I like it as a digestive with ice cubes to lower the alcohol degree.
- vůně jemná nasládlost, plný koš ovoce, ostřejší peprmintové tóny
- chuť vcelku hodně nasládlá, 59% dává o sobě vědět, vanilka
Závěr sladký, jemný až karamelkový
