Gold Rum

This rum is the perfect all-rounder, a fantastic full bodied sipping rum that also lends itself to bringing depth and complexity to mixed drinks.

Aged for a minimum of 8 years in the tropics after a long, natural fermentation, this blend of 100% traditional Pot Still marks is characterised by a high ester profile and tropical notes.

A well-balanced and tasty blend of ripe fruit, spices, and phenolic aromas. Affirming an authentic and natural character, Hampden Estate 46% is a proud representative of Pure Single Jamaican Rums.

Nose: Pineapple, passion fruit and new-car leather. Candied and jellied fruit notes develop: papaya, guava, lime, Seville orange, blood orange and nectarine. Banana and toasted spice notes build, with prominent clove notes.

Palate: The spice and bananas lead: creamy banana pie with a generous dusting of ground clove and cinnamon. The banana remains as apples and pineapples roll in. Dark and weight oily notes sneak in behind.

Finish: Cinnamon spice and sweet banana fade to reveal apple jam and mint.

Layers and layers of fruit are carefully balanced by cream and a touch of dark and dirty oiliness.
