Very exciting rum set!!!!
Hampden Estate Singe Jamaican Rum Collection...$139.99 / 8pk
8 - 200ml bottles
For the first time in its history Hampden Estate is offering an opportunity to taste all the characteristic Hampden marks in sequence.
The tasting kit box set offers eight Hampden rum variants and contains information on the eight different raw material and process combinations which produced them, as well as certain significant chemical analysis data examined by means of gas chromatography. It is thus a one-of-a-kind tasting tool offering the chance to gain a full understanding of the incredible diversity of the eight marks of this great Jamaican rum and what makes each one so different from all the others, within the distillery’s expressive range.

Includes these 8 rums - with tasting sheet
OWH Outram W. Hussey
OWH is one of Hampden’s most recent marks, having been created by the Hussey family in the first decade of the 21st century. It is the lightest mark, but a faithful expression of the Hampden style all the same.

LFCH Lawrence Francis Close Hussey
LFCH is the other more recent mark invented by the Hussey family. Like OWH, it is made with molasses alone, but a longer fermentation enables it to develop a complex equilibrium of many different esters.

LROK Light Rum Over Kelly
LROK is a historic mark, created at the end of the 19th century and dedicated to the Owen-Kelly family, then owners of Hampden Estate. From LROK onwards all five raw materials are used.

HLCF Hampden Light Continental Flavoured
HLCF can be viewed as the threshold for the higher ester profiles and this too has deep roots in the history of Hampden Estate’s reputation as a high-ester but balanced rum.

<> H Hampden
The <>H mark expresses a high percentage of the intense flavors produced by ethyl butyrate, such as ripe bananas and pineapple, which are highly characteristic of the Hampden style. This mark is certainly the starting point for highly concentrated profiles.

HGML Hampden George MacFarquhar Lawson
With its high aromatic concentration levels and greater intensity, HGML was originally used for export market blending. It predominates with ethyl butyrate esters.

C<>H Continental Hampden
Its extreme intensity makes C<>H a rare mark. Its production process is similar to HGML’s and its aroma profile is similar but its ester levels are even higher.

DOK Dermot Owen Kelly-Lawson
DOK is the highest ester-content rum at Hampden Estate and the whole of Jamaica. A legendary mark, DOK reaches the highest legal ester-content levels for rum. Tasting DOK is an extreme but extremely informative experience.
