Hampden Estate was founded in 1753 and has been distilling rum for almost three centuries in the Trelawny Parish, historically known as the grand cru of Jamaican rum. Renowned throughout the world for its full, intensely flavorful rums, Hampden Estate has always produced quintessential, heavy pot still pure single rums, using unique methods that guarantee its remarkable aromas and truly exceptional taste.

This particularly expressive 2023 Distillery Edition sets the tone right from the start for a tasting that explores a huge diversity of fruity registers, right to the empty glass. Medicinal notes guide its flavor and aroma palette to a decidedly empyreumatic profile.

Both refined and heady. The first nose reveals incredibly distinguished aromas of cane flower, cane sugar and vanilla. The oxidative aroma palette then offers notes of hydrocarbon, bourbon vanilla and exotic fruits (pineapple, banana).

Rich, powerful. Lively notes of camphor and vetiver precede flavors of clove that gradually envelop the taste buds. The unctuous mid- palate is deliciously vanilla, lemony and honeyed (acacia).

Long and minimalist. Hot cane sugar pours across the palate. The rich after-taste is milky (coconut, almond) and subtly aniseedy. Ginger, Mirabelle plum and aromatic plants (wild thyme, sage) draw out the tasting.
