Meine Long Pond Referenz. Und das zu einem unschlagbaren PLV!

Sehr schöner LP, mir persönlich ein bisschen zu langweilig, da gibt es deutlich ausdrucksstärkere. Spüre hinten eine tolle Kokosnote

I was looking forward to try this rum, to better compare how could perform a continental ageing vs tropical. Gotta say that this one appears more “gentle” in terms of funk, as the fruity notes (pineapple, mango) are not-so-rotten as in a NRJ Vale Royal or TECC, leaving more room to play for other flavors, like orange marmalade with a pinch of metallic and acetone. The palate is surprisingly different, I do get the same fruity notes and immediately after a spicy and funky kick, along with some wood. The rum leaves an odd (but not unpleasant) bitter note on the finish, that reminds me when you inadvertently chew an orange peel. All in all, I keep WORSHIPING the estery, bold, extremely astringent tropical long ponds, but this is indeed way more approachable ;)

sehr entspannter VRW. dieses Mark gefällt mir einfach echt gut. nicht zu viel Ester, etwas Honigmelone, Ananas und Traube an der Nase, sowie etwas Vanille, Honig und Marzipan. geschmacklich dann leicht salzig, buttrig süß nach Brioche, leicht holzig, dazu buttrige Ester Noten, etwas Mokka, Banane und gebrannte Mandeln, sowie Leder und etwas kräuterig im Abgang. schönes Ding und super Smooth!🤙 im Mai Tai hat er leider nicht so überzeugt wie erhofft sonst gäbs ne noch höhere Bewertung

nicht zuletzt durh das höhere ABV, auch etwas fordernder und spannender als der Nobilis LP 2000. An der Nase Grapefruit, Apfel und frische Kräuter, Muskat und Karamell. Der Gaumen ist sehr würzig, im Abgang zunächst gebrannter Zucker, der durch eine (angenehme) Bitternote abgelöst wird.

Long Pond at it's Best. Super ausgewogen. Lecker Ester, dabei trotzdem cremig weich.

RA / Nobilis / TRC: Very nice and mellow fruity notes with honey in all three. TRC is noticeable more woody/aged on the nose, however. RA most fruity and powerful on the palate. Nobilis somewhat tamed with noticeable less fruits. Wood and some smoke enter the picture. TRC with very nice combination of wood and fruits. Most elegant of the trio. Nice vintage/mark for enjoyable Jamaican sippers. 😊

Einer meiner ersten Long Ponds - glücklich, nicht nur eine Flasche gehabt zu haben! Sehr guter und ausgewogener VRW. Zitrusfrüchte, buttrig, spürbare Esternoten, junges Holz, leichte, sehr dezente Kräuternoten - toll! Am Gaumen geht es so weiter, sehr ausgewogen, funky aber wenig Frucht, Adstringenz, Ester, bisschen erdig, nicht zu bitter. Im Abgang mehr Kräuter, bisschen dunkler und ein bisschen mehr Bitterkeit! Ganz ganz toll und über das ursprüngliche PLV müssen wir nicht reden!
