Hampden Estate, Overproof

RRP £78

A collaboration between Jamaica’s highly regarded Hampden Estate distillery and legendary Italian bottler Velier. Billed as a ‘single pure rum’, it is drawn from spirit distilled in copper pot stills at a single distillery. Flavour is driven partly by wild fermentation, and the tropical maturation adds plenty of character. The nose is funky, with nut oil, fresh orange juice, cloves and celery. The palate gives cinnamon, pear drops, green apple, new buck leather and suede, with a finish that has lime pickle and coriander. Funkier than Sly and the Family Stone. 60% £78 Royal Mile Whiskies 97
