Description

This renowned distillery is located in the Trelawny Parish in the north west of Jamaica, an area historically representing the grand cru of Jamaican rum, characterized by an incredible biodiversity.
 
Hampden Estate has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1753, making it one of the oldest estates in the Caribbean.
 
It has maintained the same production methods and techniques for the last two centuries, such as the use of its own spring water, prolonged fermentation time with wild yeasts, tropical ageing, no added colorants and sugar, and distillation exclusively in pot stills.
 
Hampden 60% Overproof Rum is a perfect example of the High Ester Rums that Hampden Estate are renowned across the world for.

Produced from the same long, natural fermentation and traditional Pot Still marks as its 46% ABV sibling, the 60% Overproof expression displays a very bold, yet balanced character, and a powerful aromatic profile.

Full of ripe tropical fruit, phenolic notes and an underlying spice, this is a great sipping expression to sit, savour and enjoy.

Tasting Note

Nose – Roasted banana and pineapple lead. Gentle clove and nutmeg follow, along with a touch of expressed citrus peel and candied lemon zest. Barley sugar, crunchy caramel and spun sugar develop, along with rich butterscotch.

Palate – Intense fruit: pineapple, apple, pear, mango and papaya stewed down into a thick jam. Clove and cinnamon notes build, with buttery pastry and darker notes of liquorice. There’s a gentle hint of coal smoke hiding at the bottom.

Finish – Big spice and tarred oak. That fades to reveal butterscotch and mint.
