Hampden Angel is made of a 14-year-old Pays d’auge Calvados which was finished during 8 months in 4 former casks from the famous Jamaican Hampden Rum. The 4 casks being made of American Oak, this Pays d’Auge Calvados was prequalified as an Eau de Vie de Cider to conform with the Pays d’Auage appellation rules.
Rich of high esters, the nose is very complex and straight forward with flavours of ripe banana, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and baked apples. The mouth is impressively rich and powerful. High acidity, long lasting with torified notes on the final.
