HAMPDEN 8 ans Coffret 46%
Rum, Jamaica, 70cl, Ref: 57329
Aged for 8 years in the tropical climate of Jamaica, equivalent to 25 years of maturation in a more temperate European climate, this Hampden wonderfully embodies the heady, complex and refined style of the rums produced by this iconic distillery which is akin to a grand cru. Infatuated with authenticity, it beautifully recreates the renowned unique and captivating ester-rich profile of flavours and aromas patiently sculpted by three centuries of uninterrupted distillation. To better experience every nuance of the flavour and aroma palette, this gift set includes two glasses from the famous Austrian crystal glassworks Riedel.
Profile: the intense and voluptuous first nose is exotic (banana, pineapple) and tangy (orange zest). Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly rich (baked apple) and gently vanilla. Notes of acacia honey and verbena. The heady attack is very spicy (ginger, clove, nutmeg). Then exotic (coconut, guava), the mid-palate quickly develops flavours of dark chocolate, toffee and torrefaction (coffee). The long start of the finish pours cane sugar onto the tongue as beeswax gradually coats the side of the palate. On the retro-nasal olfaction, ripe fruits (apple, pear) bring lots of freshness to the very end of the palate.

- The brand
The brandAfter 265 years of production dedicated to confidential trade bottling, the Hampden distillery have launched in 2018 its own aged rums on the international scene. With an extraordinary aromatic richness, Hampden Jamaican rums are also distinguished by an ancestral manufacturing process and full maturation in the tropics.
The Velier company was founded by the Chaix family in 1947. From 1953 to 1983, this small traditional company, located in the port of Gênes, specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, then aged 25, Luca Gargano acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began specialising in the importation of exceptional spirits to be supplied to the most prestigious establishments in Italy. In the early 1990s, Luca Gargano heard rumours of a mythical, quasi-legendary stock of St James Rum that had supposedly been distilled at the end of the 19th century. Eventually he discovered proof that this stock, distilled in 1885 and bottled in 1952, did indeed exist. And in 1991, following lengthy discussions, Luca finally managed to acquire the entirety of this stock, which he then released on the Italian market. These selections of rums have since multiplied and led to the birth of exceptional ranges.
