Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

This third instalment in the journey dedicated to Hampden single casks distilled in 2010 is in the HLCF catalogue, with an ester content of 500-700 g per hectolitre of pure alcohol, and is the reply to the casks 78 and 79 also found in this catalogue. With extraordinary power and yet remarkable balance, throughout the tasting its flavour and aroma palette reveals empyreumatic, camphoric and hot notes that have not only sculpted its deeply generous personality, but also reflect its extremely traditional Jamaican style.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Topaz.

Nose : Rich, powerful. The honeyed (lime blossom), camphoric, terpenic (diesel) and telluric (lava) first nose immediately reveals the Hampden trademark. Allowed to breathe, dried fruit and nuts (apricot, walnut, fig) and absolutely delicious fragrances of cane sugar distinctly soften the atmosphere. Gradually, oxidative notes of stewed melon, balsamic vinegar and chilli (Espelette pepper) enthusiastically lead the nose to the palate.

Palate : Clean, assertive. After a relatively smooth attack (cane sugar, praline), citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) and herbaceous flavours (nettle, thyme) appear alongside an incredibly pure distillate. The richer mid-palate invites us to enjoy spice bread and a coffee éclair. The unctuous end of the palate wavers between bourbon vanilla and dark chocolate.

Finish : Long, calmed. At the start of the finish, sugar cane notes highlight the flavour palette’s vegetal character, which is seasoned with aromatic plants (bay leaf, savoury, peppermint). The imposing end of the finish is an incredibly powerful block of minerals (manganese, basalt). The retro-nasal olfaction is superbly fruity (pear, pineapple, yellow plum) and the empty glass is spicy (clove, nutmeg) and exotic (plantain banana).
