This rum is very strong. If you can't enjoy overproof rum you should not taste this one and go for the 46% instead. Fruity rum, no sugar at all as all Jamaican rum, very long finish, persistent molasses in the end, not an everyday rum.
Tried this full throttle rum at the bartenders request whilst in the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsunday Isles in North Queensland recently..
Now im not a lover of high ester overproof rums from Jamaica but this was very nice , even easily approachable at 60% ABV.. Full on fruits , over ripe bananas , mango , pineapple notes.. no added sugar or colouring , just in your face natural high octane rum !
Its 8 years old and 100% pot stilled for that funky , funky experience.. its a rum you will either love or hate.. on this particular night I loved it ! Reggae me up mon..
I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier were we tasted 9 different rums. This was the third rum of the night, that we tasted side-by-side with its 46abv brother. This was just a mouthful of flavour. Not the biggest funk taste, but certainly something for all (Jamaican) rumfans.
Nose: Overripe pineapple, ginger, vax and some hints of oaky sweetness and funk
Taste: Oak, overripe tropical fruits, bananas, funk, ginger and a small hint of brown sugar with a long and warm aftertaste that lingers for quite a while.
Overall: This is really a great bottle of rum. If you are really into the funky stuff from Jamaica, then you might want to give this a pass, but it would be a mistake. For all others this is a must-try if you have the chance.
Difficile de se prononcer, puissant et fort, merite de s'y attarder mais est assez différend de ce qui est connu
El color es válido para un ron de 8 años, no muy oscuro.
En nariz el olor a laca fresca está 100% presente. Típico de los HER. Lamentablemente ésto tapa otros aromas. Un poco de fruta, quizás algo de cuero. Para los 60% nada alcohólico.
En boca una explosión de sabores. La laca a mi parecer casi desaparece completamente. También en boca a pesar de 60% poco alcohólico. Amargo, muy amargo, una melange de hierbas amargas que perduran en el paladar.
Quien lo tomaría a ciegas no pensaría que es ron. Un jamaicano muy especial y probablemente no guste a muchos. Pero es 100% aconsejable para regresar un poco a las raíces del ron...el sabor continúa en boca!
Very nice stuff and at 59-60* it’ll blow you away -mixed. Funky pot still stuff and lovingly packaged. However, with the price, I’d go with smith & cross for mixing and at that proof it’s not really a sipper...
Dark amber color in the glass. A scent of ripe fruits and fresh spices. Taste ripe fruits, banana, pineapple, cocus, but also nuts, leather and leaves. A very good rum
Interesting to taste authentic strong rum without any additives. Unfortunately for me, the burning is covering a lot from taste.
Enjoyed 2 glasses of Hampden Estate Pure Single Jamaican Overproof Rum while in London. Pretty decent bottle and label design, unique for sure. Light amber color indicating very little added ingredients. Jamaican funkiness hits you right in the face with plenty of rubber and glue mixed with floral notes and grass. Major burn at the end being bottled at 120 Proof. You will either love this rum or hate it, there is no middle ground.
