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 stuff is amazing. It has everything you could ask for in a great rum: high hogo, tropical fruit notes of turned bananas and pineapples, a long burnt sugar finish. It makes a hell of an impression and is worth the price point.

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..

Toto je presne funky Jamajka akú si predstavujem. Vôňa sa rozprestrie do celej miestnosti a navodí tú správnu atmosféru. Je to úžasný Overproof plný chutí, jemne zahreje a v ústach zapojí každý chuťový kanálik. Doporučujem všetkým milovníkom overproof rumov.

truly a great Jamaican single rum. Great synergy of spice, sweet, bite, and burn. Get this instead of Appleton.

intense but not that boozy, aroma and flavor changes continueously while the bottle opened. Nice overproof rum on its price range.

Aged 8 years in Jamaica
100% Pot still
Wild fermentation

Nose: Musky, caramel, smoke, salt, banana, spicy
Palate: Super "dark" and pungent. First comes a short wave of very salty caramel, then loads of pepperiness and loads of leather, smoke and oak, overripe bananas, some weird muskiness like
very dark seed oil of some sort, minerality.
Finish: Stays for a long time in mouth, especially the leather and musky aromas, after some time you get a hint of sweetness and vanilla.

Overall: Amazing rum, huge amount of pungency and flavour for not over the top amount of ester marque rum. Infact i would say this is like smith&cross cranked to a 10. Wonderful rum with wonderful heritage.
