🌴 The Funk Flight 🌴
Hampden Estate rum is described as “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 7 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”. ⠀
Exodus is distilled in Jamaica but blended in Kentucky. “Finishing and blend showcase classic American Whiskey barrel flavors of vanilla, caramel and tobacco with rich flavors of Jamaican Rum featuring tropical fruits, ripe vegetables and bit of funk”. ⠀
Plantations Xaymaca Special Dry “revives the quintessential Jamaican style, 100% pot still rums of the 19th century with an expression of intense flavors that reveal the traditional, legendary rum funk. Aromas and flavors of black banana and flambéed pineapple, locally called Hogo.Xaymaca evokes the name given to the island by its first inhabitants, the Arawaks. This nectar is a return to the origins of Jamaican rum, in all its complexity and intensit”.⠀
All in all, it is one of our favorite flights.
A trip to discover a world of funky flavors you have yet to experience!
