Hampden 14 Year Old Faultline K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Jamaica Rum (750ml)

SKU #1192858

Hampden is a Jamaican distillery long known for making high-ester pot still rums: the type of spirits that explode with a funky, fruity flurry, sometimes with hints of menthol and tea. Usually these potent and powerful rums are blended with other column still rums to create a balanced and easy drinking style. Rarely can you find single barrel, high proof versions of Hampden not only bottled on their own, but without the use of coloring agents or sweeteners. Yet, that's what we've brought to you with our new Faultline expression: a pure, wonderfully-vibrant, delicious version of Hampden that should please serious collectors and wow any inquisitive newcomer. A bit of sweet cane lures you in on the first sip before exploding into a high-ester supernova of fruit tea and menthol. It never gets out of control, however, maxing out at just the right spot before finishing with vanilla from the oak. This is not only a dynamic rum of incredible quality, it's one of the best rums we've ever carried, period.

I feel so incredibly lucky to have stumbled upon this stupendous cask. I mean I've always been a fan of the high ester style rums coming out of the historic Hampden Estate Distillery. But, they've never been the most approachable style. That's why the big distilleries blend in some column distilled light rum to keep them from being too over the top. Little did they know that if they just aged the stuff for a bit longer, keep the proof up a bit, don't add all that sugar and caramel coloring, they'd have something that transcends almost anything else in the market place. This magnificent specimen of Jamaica's potential is going to change your mind about RUM. It's a total knock out. The funky intense flavors in the young rums have rounded out to powerful fruit flavors balanced with incredible spice and wood elements. The perfect balance of sweet and savory. It drinks like nothing else in the store. Also the label is pretty...really really pretty.

My personal favorite of the three Faultline rums we just brought in, the Hampden is full of pot still goodness (i.e. funky stuff), but never goes over the line. The kiss of sweet vanilla rounds out the finish and really balances everything out. Great, great stuff. I can't stress this little guy enough to our best customers.

I really liked this rum. It is medium bodied and packed with rich and round flavors and a long finish. It is, however, not too sweet, with just enough balance to make it interesting.The Hampden is a tasty rum to relish and enjoy.
