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.

Awesome gift I got recently, both nose and palate very Jamaican, funky and leet with predominant musty or overriped tropical fruits, with 0 GPL added basically sweet feeling but it is honest, not synthetical sweetness. The finish is little bit peppery. There is no element in nose or palate I wouldn't be comfortable with. Alike Smith & Cross, this rum very easily gets under ones' skin. With 47% ABV the rum is really gentle and has no boring alcohol/ethanol taste/smell at all, just quality flavors.
Possibly the best rum I've ever run thru my picky mouth!

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 ยซย Wowย ยป 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!

Tropical Fruit, oak,
Not as funky as other jamaican rums, but still lots of character.
Easy way into jamaica rum.
