This is an overproof rum out of Jamaica, distilled by the cult-favorite Hampden estate. It is aged for 7 years in the tropics and bottled at 60% ABV. Let's give it a try.
Maple, caramel, pineapple, mango and burnt sugar. Rich, fruity, the ethanol and barrel char combine nicely to present a complex, savory, tropical profile.
The heat on the palate is shockingly mild, it’s an easy sipper. Light tannin, sweet oak, burnt sugar and creme brulee mix with a touch of ash, char and tons of pineapple, mango and lemon.
Long finish, this bruiser combines creme brulee, pineapple, candied ginger and a zest of limes and lemons.
A tropical beat, Hampden Overproof is the perfect rum for adventurous drinkers who want to embrace a balanced, powerful, Jamaican.
