This is a dream combination, Foursquare meets Hampden, Barbados meets Jamaica…
Coffey column in the first case, double retort pot still in the second. In fact, this is a blended rum -as are most rums produced by Foursquare / Doorly’s -, but, this time round, instead of using Foursquare’s heavy rum, they used that produced by the mythical Hampden Distillery, the only one in Jamaica that does not use a column still to produce light rums.
A case of diluting Jamaican rum with Barbadian rum, sort of… The Hampden marks used to make this blend haven’t been revealed yet. Its 47% alcohol content makes it an ideal cocktail base, especially for butt-kicking daiquiris. A direct competitor for Appleton on the one hand and for Smith & Cross on the other!
