Vet inte om det blir så mycket bättre än såhär. Banan och gummi. Söt och svårt att fatta 67% när den går ner så lätt och lent.

67% is really strong, especially on the nose. My personal advice is to let it rest a bit, then go at it slowly, giving your mouth some time. Strong molasses in the end, coffee and tobacco and exotic fruit.

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! :)

wow, powerfull, blasting.
first impression in the nose is a bit like cleaner, but after 5 min it turn to flowers, plums or prunes.
The first sip burns a bit but goes immediatelly to wood, smoke, 1000 of others flavors
Long lasting with this - i'm not sure - high ester very tastefull Jamaican style

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!

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

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruits: 4.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 3/5
Complexity: 4/5
Value (110€): 3.5/5
Experience level: expert

Strong, distinct nose - almost petrol like, and carries a heft punch too at 67%.

You can add a dash of water to create a smoother, but still very pungent classic Jamaican sipper, or just keep as is and treat with respect.

The strength of flavour also makes it a winner in cocktails as it never gets lost - Corn 'n Oil is particular is amazing.

Certainly not for everyone, but if you like Appletons or Smith & Cross, this is worth seeking out.

Dans la continuité du HLCF et du LROK/HLCF, on retrouve le même nez et les mêmes saveurs en bouche mais en moins « explosif ».
C’est EXCELLENT.
