Sjukt bra! Påminner om vanliga 8an, men med.mer fruktiga estrar och lite bättre burn. Rekommenderas.

I really like the 8YO, so had to get a sample of this.

Nose is pungent banana funk, with a bit of solvent and varnish. The taste has a bit of oak before the banana kicks in with a pleasant burn. The finish is the same - banana, touch of oak and a fair bit of burn.

I have a Mezan XO on the go at the moment, and really this tastes like a classier version of that. One dimensional. It might be more than double the price but the 11YO LROK is much more complex and enjoyable. For this money, I'll be sticking to the regular 8YO

Great nose, smells of light oak but tons of banana and Dr. Pepper or Cheerwine. Taste has light oak that transforms into lots of tropical fruit mixed with cherries and plums. Minimal burnt tire/ mustiness. Finish is Dr. Pepper, fresh banana and a hint of burnt tire. A really good rum.

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

7.75/10 I liked it for a younger aged expression. I purchased a bottle.

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!
