Strohgelb im Glas.
In der Nase frisch und frech. Früchte und Blumen, Bananen, Ananas, Mango, Orchideen, Papageienblumen und Karamell liegen schon einige Tage in einem Holzbottich. Ein kräftiger Schuss Funk fehlt auch nicht.
Am Gaumen auch nicht gerade brav. Wild und stürmisch gebärden sich die dutzenden Aromen als ob es kein Morgen gäbe. Früchte, Karamell, Blumen, Holz, alles drängt in den Vordergrund und will am auffälligsten sein.
Im Abgang locker-flockig und langanhaltend. Das Karamell flirtet am Strand noch ein wenig mit den Früchten.
Ein leichter und sehr aromatischer Rum für den Sommer und die dazu passenden Drinks. Für leckere Cocktails oder auch pur. Barkeeper oder Funkliebhaber werden daran ihre Freude finden. Leichter und unbeschwerter als der 8 Jährige.
G+R F LU22

Straw yellow in the glass.
Fresh and naughty on the nose. Fruits and flowers, bananas, pineapple, mango, orchids, parrot flowers and caramel have been in a wooden vat for several days. A strong shot of funk is not missing either.
Not very well-behaved on the palate either. Wild and tempestuous, the dozens of flavors behave as if there were no tomorrow. Fruits, caramel, flowers, wood, everything pushes to the foreground and wants to be the most noticeable.
The finish is easy-going and long-lasting. The caramel still flirts a bit with the fruits on the beach.
A light and very aromatic rum for summer and the drinks that go with it. For delicious cocktails or also pure. Bartenders or funk lovers will find joy in it. Lighter and more carefree than the 8 year old.

I got this on a sample kit.
Bright and light color.
Nose: Fruits (banana, mango, pineapple), vanilla, flowers, and citrus.
Taste: the fruits are a bit muted, you can feel them, but the taste is very pungent pure funk. Some dark notes resembling like coffee and cloves.
The ending is prolonged, with rotten fruits in a good way.
I love this one, should be good with some cocktails.

Hampden The Younger LROK
- I have recently been getting into Jamaican rums and my first impression of this rum was that it will be nice to have tried it but I did not expect it would « Wow » me. The nose was crisp but without sweetness, as often is the case with Bajan rums. First sip was somewhat disappointing but I started warming up to this as the tasting progressed. By the last sip I had discovered another Jamaican rum I really like and will be looking for to add to my collection. This is REALLY good.

I'm relatively new to rum, coming from 1500+ whiskey tastings, and I get there is a world of "jamaican funk" I'm not yet familiar with, but if this is the funk, then funk = alcohol fumes and rubber inside a barrage of solvents that bury the other faint banana/pineapple notes. Maybe this is the islay to the more mainstream scotches and I'll come around in time, but for now this is the worst of the 50 rums I've tasted to date...

Classic hampden at a fine price.
Nose: potent with musty, overripe bananas and pineapple, caramel, gum and glue. Feels balanced.
Mouth: great body and a nice underlying fruity sweetness. The bananas and pineapple are there, wrapped in moderate funk. Integrated alcohol. Balanced lingering ending with some woody spices.

When I saw LROK on the bottle and remembered the rave reviews on these, I easily plunked down $52 US for this young Hampden. I have not been a fan of Hampden and this will be my last. Drinking this one OTR is the only way to do it because the dirty notes come through like in a Caroni. If that is what you like, then go for it! Besides drinking this one OTR, I tried mixing with Pepsi. I have NEVER had a rum ruin a perfectly good Pepsi before, so this is what sunk my rating down to a 5 to be never bought again. Way too much hogo and dirty notes for me!

Az első hampdemem, nagyon finom és erőteljes rum. Karakteres hosszú lecsengés. Az adatlapon nem jól szerepel az alkoholtartalom mert "csak" 47%. Éljen Jamaica 😁

This is a stunner .

Nosing
Bannana,papaya and mango

Tasting
Heaven , more ripe Bannana , toffee and soft fruits

This is an amazing drop .

Hampden 2016 LROK The Younger combines the aromatic intensity of tropical maturation with the freshness of a young rum. With an ester content and an overall high proportion of flavour-bearing congeners, exotic aromas unfold from mango to fresh pineapple juice and orange peel to cloves.
