HAMPDEN 2016 LROK - The Younger
Hampden Estate The Younger is a very old rum, the antithesis of its name. This cuvée is an LROK, which stands for Light Rum Owen Kelly. This acronym designates a rum with an aromatic rate between 200 and 400g/hlap in terms of high esters. This rum therefore has a very beautiful aromatic intensity.
It has benefited from tropical aging for 5 years in ex-Bourbon casks in the cellars of the Hampden distillery.
Nose : Delicate notes of mango, banana and pepper complemented by hints of varnish.
Palate : Sweet and fruity flavors of orange zest and fresh pineapple.
Finish : Long on sugar cane juice and cloves.
