Hampden Estate Rum70cl / 46%
Hampden Estate Rum Reviews
Nose: Pineapple, passion fruit and new-car leather. Candied and jellied fruit notes develop: papaya, guava, lime, Seville orange, blood orange and nectarine. Banana and toasted spice notes build, with prominent clove notes.
Palate: The spice and bananas lead: creamy banana pie with a generous dusting of ground clove and cinnamon. The banana remains as apples and pineapples roll in. Dark and weight oily notes sneak in behind.
Finish: Cinnamon spice and sweet banana fade to reveal apple jam and mint.
Comment: Layers and layers of fruit are carefully balanced by cream and a touch of dark and dirty oiliness.

Was recommended to me by a friend but it did not impress, I expected more depth. This reminds me of Irish whiskey. Clearly a quality rum but not my favorite.
This was a very welcome Christmas present. This is a very special run indeed packed with exotic fruit.
