Bottled under the distillery’s name for the first time since it was founded in 1753, Hampden Estate uses the same techniques now as it did when it first opened. The combination of fresh spring water, wild fermentation and traditional distillation gives Hampden Estate its unique, high-ester character.
Hampden Estate 60% Overproof
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.
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.
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.
Big spice and tarred oak. That fades to reveal butterscotch and mint.
