Whiskynote's Tasting Note for reference

Nose : industrial and solventy, and I mean that in the best way. There's some diesel, paint and acetone. Then slightly fermented / heady bananas, caramelized pineapple and anchovy tapenade. A little stone dust. Some liquorice and a hint of fresh, earthy oak shavings. Wicked, but great.

Mouth: half fruity (pineapple, lime, grapefruit zest) with a bitter edge and spicy, grippy oak. Ginger, liquorice, salt. Plenty of tarry notes, varnish and paint thinner again. Herbs too, like basil and thyme. Not the most complex version, but still very intense and characterful despite the lower strength.

Comments: Hampden has this raw, slightly industrial quality which makes you go 'wow' (if you're open to it). A rum for Islay fans, recommended. I bought a bottle, any serious drinks enthusiast should at least know it.
