Hampden Aged 8 Years OWH 2012 Single Cask #669 Pure Single Jamaica Rum Singapore Edition

$594.00

Living up to its epic history, Hampden’s lightest mark definitely has a lot to say! The Hampden OWH #669 is undoubtedly Jamaican on the nose, despite tropical fruit notes that are rather soft; it then gives way to warm spices (cinnamon & nutmeg), and wood polish.

On the palate, it is lovely and complex. The attack is gently acidic and vegetal, followed by rich chocolate notes and a touch of leather. Ripe fruit is balanced by the warm spices, lightly roasted, joined by soft, inviting notes of toasted bread.
We highly recommend trying this Hampden OWH #669 with a little bit of dilution as it opens up beautifully. With water, the acidity gives way to richer, sweeter tones, and fresh tropical fruits blossom, with a welcoming touch of black pepper.

Finally, the roasted notes mingle with fresh notes of menthol, eucalyptus and liquorice on the finish. Truly, an epic ride.

Distillery Profile:
Renowned throughout the world for its full, intensely flavorful pot still rums, Hampden Estate continues today to be the quintessential heavy pot still rum of choice. Hampden Estate was founded in 1753 and remains one of the only independent distilleries in Jamaica.

In 2009, Everglades Farms Ltd. owned by the Hussey family, acquired the estate via public bid through divestment procedures of the Jamaica Sugar Company assets, owned by the Government of Jamaica. Since the acquisition, Everglades Farms has invested heavily into the estates, provided jobs throughout Trelawny and provide considerable financial and other infrastructure support more than 17 communities and schools. This has brought renewed hope to the people of the region and to the economy of Trelawny. The Hussey family is committed to preserving the great traditions of Hampden and to the preservation of old family business values, a necessary prerequisite given that several of Hampden’s current customers can trace their orders back several generations.
