Review #1212 | Rum Review #76 – Hampden DOK Unaged

The Schtick: This is an unaged high ester rum distilled at Hampden distillery and held by E&A Scheer. It carries the DOK marque.


Distiller: Hampden

Bottler: Fine Drams

Selection: Fine Drams

ABV: 69% ABV

Age: N/A


Nose: Pungent and earthy. Loaded with fruits. Mango, agave syrup, pineapple, papaya. Pine nuts. Light rubber, and an ester explosion. The potency is incredible.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Lots of heat. Massive funk bomb. Ester attack. Honey, apples, banana, savory meat and a force of funk that is unrelenting. It’s a rollercoaster, but altogether enjoyable.

Finish: Long and rich. Lots of ash, leather, honey, papay and rum stank.

Overall: Incredible. Unique. It’s funky and sweet, yet savory and meaty. Like I said before, the esters are unrelenting. I’ll be this makes the daquiri of the century.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 8
