Review #882 – Rumfire Hampden Overproof Jamaican Potstill Rum

Review #882 | /r/Rum Review #44 – Rumfire Overproof Jamaican Rum

The Schtick: This is an overproof, unaged release from Jamaican distillers at Hampden Estate.

Distiller: Hampden Estate (Jamaica)

Bottler: Hampden, For Aiko Importers

ABV: 63% ABV

Age: N/A

Nose: Super sweet and fruit. Confectioners sugar, vanilla icing. Pineapple, mango, guava, rotting banana. Noticeably clean of rubber, acetone, or really dirty esters. Super fruity, leaning towards pure tropical fruits.

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel. Shockingly mild on the proof. Not punishing at all. Sweet, lots of fruits here also. Spirit is pretty evident. Almost nutty. Lots of pineapple, guava, banana, some lime.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. Lots of fruit and sugar here. Drying in the back of my throat, with some almost amaretto presence.

Overall: This was really nice and also works very well in cocktails. Big fan, but wish it was easier to find around me.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
