The Hampden estate is perhaps the most traditional rum producer in the world. They refuse to cut corners here and make a serious case for rum being the most complex spirit in the world with every release. Despite the name here, this spirit is surprisingly elegant while possesing an undeniable intensity as well. A superb choice for mixed drinks, notes here include grilled plantains, tropical flowers, buttered popcorn, shaved coconut and papaya. The spirit flows painlessly across the palate. This may be the best unaged overproof out there at the moment.
