Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Rich oak, banana bread, almost smoky at points, salted butter, BBQ pineapple and enjoyably bitter Alpine herbs.

Hampden Estate Overproof Rum Reviews

Gun powder

I had a sample of this from a friend and I always referred to it as the gun powder Rum.
This Rum will kick you in the face and literally knock your teeth out!
Its definitely not a session Rum. You drink this over time, neat.
Will buy it again

Challenging rum, rather young, but complex and always interesting

Assuming MoM doesn't have a stockpile of Batch 1, as described above, this will now be Batch 2, as has been distributed by Hampden for a while now.
The bottle looks the same except now it's titled HCLF Classic, and as such, rather than a blend of Hampden's lower ester marques, this is pure HCLF (the same marque as Rum Fire) and 4 years old rather 7.
All that makes this a very different beast. This has the profile and complexity of an unaged Overproof, but with a bit of softening from the barrel.
Smell has that burnt car tyre mix of volatiles from the Rum Fire this started out as. The banana only really comes in with the taste along with the typical Hampden flavours hiding under the most pronounced burn, the burnt tyres, and an oily-ness, all moving into a long finish.
This is very hot, even for an cask strength rum, meaning I take tiny sips, and pour small measures. Definitely interesting, but also a very different dram from the 8YO or any other aged Hampden.

Even better than a good malt

Without question the finest Rum I have ever tasted, with a heavenly blend of sweetness and fruit, its just a perfect drink

Too funky for my taste

Well made, and tastes very good, with very strong aroma. But it's been fermented for a longer time (as it says on the label), so the esters are quite noticeable, too much for my taste. If you are a fan of strong Jamaican rums then this is very good indeed.
