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...

This is my first bottle of self-label Hampden, and it’s excellent. Decently funky, still recognizably Jamaican, but with a lot of fun citrus and mango notes that I have never really had before. The bottle and label are fun, too. Very impressed.

this was fantastic. the nose is surprisingly complex for such a high proof. the esters are not too front and there is some lovely barrel and caramelized tastes at the front. the finish is like a hint of charred pineapple? i really like it. kind of smokey and yet a tiny bit of bright acidity. i know some don't like the high proof but when it is executed with so much character, the burn and then the very long last tingle on the tongue and lips is really something. this is truly a great rum.

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.

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..

The nose is very intense with classic hampden notes of fermented pineapple, gluestick, burnt rubber and banana. Sipping it, the 60% feels integrated but it’s no doubt a rum that demands some attention. It’s big and bold with a fair bit of heat but the sexy notes from the nose are still on board, alongside varnish and some lingering raisin like sweetness on the finish. Great when the mood is right.

I appreciate this rum but not quite my thing unique funky island flavors, great scent like Hampden 8 but the over proof is hard to handle as a sipper, unlike Fourquare over proof. Still glad to have it in the collection.

With water, it's just like the 46%. First sip, creamy with a bit of sweetness which disappears quickly. Rich and oily. Rubber, diesel, old leather, tobacco, a plethora of sage, baking spices(less cinnamon more clove)citrus, but more lemon, mango. Mint, and menthol at the finish. Not for everyone, but really enjoyable!
