I have tasted bottlings 2019 and 2020 and I loved both, but i think that 2020 is very special.

Hampden notes are clearly noticeable.
Pineapples, Mangoes, honey, cinnamon, maple syrup.
Exceptional bottle

This Hampden Great House 2020 is my 200th review on this website and obviously a great choice. Wow, my favourite rums so far are all from Barbados with FS distillery rums claiming top spots. Received a sample of this Jamaican rum and I was blown away, not like FS rums at all but totally as good. It was like combining a FS rum with the funkiness of Jamaican rum. At 59% this rum packs a punch but it is still thoroughly enjoyable to enjoy neat. I must now expend my collection to include Hampden products. Definitely a “10” in my opinion.

Takto si predstavujem dokonalý jamajsky rum. Absolútne úžasné. Človek má už po naliati pocit, že celá izba sa ocitá na Jamajske. Úžasná vôňa, ovocno-esterova. V chuti nálož citrusov v Tom najlepšom mixe, záver veľmi dlhý. Človek má dlho na jazyku zmes esterov a exotického ovocia. Skvelé a ešte raz skvelé. Bavil má ešte viac ako ročník 2019.

Stewed pineapples, fermented and overripe fruit, wet wood, huge vegetal notes, vanilla syrup, the “hairs” of a mango seed when you suck on it. What an experience. My favorite rum yet.

Tasted neat in a glencairn
Nose: immediately recognizable Hampden notes of tar, rotting fruit, cola, maybe even bring olives, but always with a sweetness
Mouth: an oily feel with the fruits up front - mangoes, bananas - then burnt sugar, brine, tar even notes of cherry cola and licorice. Wild ride!
Finish: long. Next morning even.
This is something special from the nose to finish. Incredible pot still Jamaican!

Aroma: Výrazné a pronikavé - spousta šťavnatého tropického ovoce (banán, ananas, mango), rozkvetlé květiny, med. Na pozadí tóny lepidla a gumy.
Chuť: Petrolejová, šťavnatě ovocná, trpká a svíravá.
Dozvuk: Mirabelky, špendlíky, tinktura, závan jódu a sušené ovoce. Dlouhý.
Sladkost: 0/3
Celá lahev
Porovnával jsem s GH 2021, který byl lehce odlišný - jemnější a sladší. Oba v konečném výsledku hodnotím shodně 9/10.

The Hampden Great House 2020 comes from Jamaica and is the annual edition of the distillery. It is an 80/20 blend of OWH 2013 and <>H 2017. The pot style rum was bottled at a cask strength of 59% alcohol with no additives. There are 5800 bottles of this limited edition.

The nose promises a well balanced classic Hampden. Lots of candied banana, fermented tropical fruits, light solvent notes, caramel and a certain palatable note make the nose attractive and inviting. The blend surprised me on the palate. It's amazingly flavorful and dry. In addition to the banana and the ester, the blend shows a peppery spiciness and bitterness. The rum is quite creamy and buttery. I notice caramel and orange peel. The rum is strong, but the alcohol is excellently integrated. The finish is dry, astringent, with tannins and the ester lingers for a long time.

Not a classic Hampden for me, as it shows a lot of barrel influence on the palate and the strong spice surprised me. I like the 2021more. But overall very tasty. The rum has a great nose and is very versatile and complex on the palate. The funk just gets lost a little here. The finish is incredibly long and wonderful if you like ester.

Der Hampden Great House 2020 kommt aus Jamaica und ist die Jahresedition der Distillery. Es ist ein 80 zu 20 Blend aus OWH 2013 und <>H 2017. Der im Pot Still hergestellte Rum wurde in einer Fassstärke von 59% Alkohol ohne Zusatzstoffe abgefüllt. Es gibt 5800 Flaschen von dieser limitierten Edition.

Die Nase verspricht einen gut ausbalancierten klasischen Hampden. Viel kandierte Banane, vergorene tropische Früchte, leichte Lösungsmittel Noten, Karamel und eine gewisse süffige Note machen die Nase attraktiv und einladend. Am Gaumen hat mich der Blend dann doch überrascht. Er ist direkt erstaunlich würzig und trocken. Neben der Banane und dem Ester zeigt der Blend eine pfeffrige Schärfe und Bitterstoffe. Dabei ist der Rum durchaus cremig und buttrig. Karamel und Orangenschalen nehme ich war. Der Rum ist kräftig der Alkohol aber hervoragend eingebunden. Der Abgang ist trocken, astringend, mit Tanninen und der Ester bleibt lange bestehen.

Für mich kein klasischer Hampden, da er am Gaumen viel Fasseinfluss zeigt und die starke Würze mich überrascht hat. Mir gefällt der 2021 deutlich besser. Vielleicht auch die Tagesform. Insgesamt aber trotzdem sehr lecker. Der Rum hat eine tolle Nase und ist sehr vielseitig und komplex am Gaumen. Hier geht der Funk nur ein wenig verloren. Der Abgang ist unglaulich lang und wunderbar.
