Heavy rum for the more experienced rumlover. Taste of benzine, leather and dark chocolat. With almost 70 degrees its one of the havier rums in the world. Enjoy and drink with caution.

Beautiful golden color going towards bronze. On the nose, this rum delivers notes of exotic fruits like ananas, the ripe banana typical of Jamaica. It is very floral, vegetal, very elegant. I also detect Sarawak pepper. On the palate, it is very floral, always on the exotic fruits going towards the spices. The final is on the banana. Very beautiful Hampden. But my favorite is the HLCF

This is pure fruit and burnt rubber. Missing the rest of the complexity of hampden blends, but still pretty delicious. Wouldn't buy for the price though.

Today I have a 6y old LROK in the glas. I already tasted LFCH, HGML, C<>H, <>H and some DOKs.
I'm curious what LROK can offer.

The nose is strong with a bite. I get the pineapples from the high ester smell first. The nose is fruity and also sour. A typical Hampden nose. After some time in the glas the apples are rising.
Around the fruits is also some solvent, some oak and grasy notes with fresh bananas.

The taste starts with pineapple and glue, then I get a bitter note from tannins. It's like a typical high ester Hampden. Then the taste turns very sour, acid is rising on the palet with some solvent.
In the middle the taste became more saturated, I get honey, again the acid with solvent, then papaya and apples.
The finish starts with spice and pineapple, not I get hints of white oak and some grasy notes. Not much malt in the aftertaste, because the esters are more present.
The aftertaste is with pineapples, apples and malt. Thats tasty.

Overall a good high ester Hampden. I would prefer more malt in the taste and less acid. Therefore 87 points.

Nose: acid, apples ***, pineapple**, white oak, some glue or solvent, banana**, grasy note, papaya*
Taste: pineapple, glue, some tannins, acid, acid, acid, solvent
Middle: honey, acid, solvent, papaya, apples
Finish: spice, pineapple, white oak, grasy note
Aftertaste: pineapple, apple, some malt

The first sip burns a bit but it smoothens in the end.
Oak, molasses spice, cinamon, smoke, funk, floral, exotic fruits, dark berries, wood, sugarcane... Almost everything I like in a rum! :)

This is a serious expression of what Jamaican rum is all about. Sweet, not so smooth, with a double Hongo kick to your saggy ass. To me, It’s a bit much,all alone in your mouth.... but I’ve made some incredible drinks using this as a backbone. Strong funk, long legs and a aftertaste that carries on. Unique for sure.

At 67° it is maybe not intended to be sipped straigh... with some drops of water it reveals all the usual Hampden flavours = ananas, olive, dry wood, earth... Not as extreme and maybe not as excellent as the HLCF of the same bottlings but still very good. If you like this style only.

Good stuff, this one. Powerful as a Hampden ever is, but - somehow more civilized high-ester stuff. The age has taken off the biggest jolt of the esters, and left us with a fine, funky Jamaican rum. Voila!

Habitation Velier, the brand that doesn't insult your intelligence. An example how rum should be presented for consumers.

Notes: Glue. And surprisingly aged agricole Martinique style.

Not so delicious as expected. Also not so intense aroma as expected. Not my favorite Jamaican rum. But still interesting. An educational comparison with its unaged brother LROK white.
