Ve vůni klasická Jamajka, v chuti dzem, vysokoesterove tóny, citrusy. Je to hebky a komplexni rum. Stojí za to.

I got my hands on the old great house edition. Soon we will see the new one with the green label.

The nose starts pleasant, there is almost no high ester bite in the nose.
I get some apples, pineapple and bananas. Some glue, honey and grasy notes.
Not very complex but tasty and mild in comparison to other high ester Hampdens.

The taste starts a little bit weak with grasy notes, some pineapple and apples. The taste is not very sour but a little bit dry. As the rum gets warm in the mouth the spice is rising. Then I get honey, with apples and oak. Not a very complex body.
The finish is again a little bit spicy with oak, apples and some tannins.
The taste is not very complex overall.

Tasty Hampden, not very complex. I lack some malt in the taste like 16y Kill Devil has.
I would rate it with 88 points.

Nose: apple***, pineapple**, binana*, some glue, honey and grasy note.
Taste initial: grasy notes, apple***, some pineapple*
Middle: spice, honey, apples, oak

Sweetness: 2.5/5

Value (120€): 3.5/5

Not a heavy ultra-high ester one, though there is some high ester mark in the blend (20% of DOK I have read ?)
We can find all the characteristics of a regular Hampden (like the official Hampden overproof) with more complexity, more woody side. The blend is very well done and balanced.
That being said this one in particular is maybe not my favourite Hampden but nonetheless it is a very excellent blend.

Aroma wild almost "medicinal".
Taste is fruity with strong alcohol kick, but not burning too much. Aftertaste is short and strange chemical...

Cette puissance... Un concentré de Jamaïque. Hampden power.

I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier where we tasted 9 different rums. This was the fifth rum of the night, that was tasted alongside the "Habitation Velier LFCH 2011". This rum is a somewhat new release from Hampden themselves that clocks in at 59 abv.

Nose: Several medicinal and floral notes mixes together with hints of tropical fruits and some honey-like sweetness
Taste: Once again a medicinal taste hits you with notes of honey, apricots and cocoa
Overall: This was another great bottle from Hampden. Tasted side-by-side with the LFCH it was impossible to pick a favourite. This one is more funky and would please Jamaican rumheads more, but both are great in their own right.
