Ich steh einfach auf LPS! Für mich eine DER Abfüllungen in 2021. Mega tolle Abfüllung zusammen mit dem Duchess LPS, natürlich daher auch die gleiche Wertung, da es das gleiche Fass ist. Legendäres Mark

Für einen 20y alten long pond ist hier geschmacklich extrem wenig geboten... Auch nach 3x verkosten und über eine Stunde atmen ist das hier einfach echt dünn.. Etwas Ester, etwas etwas gelbe Früchte, allerdings keine Komplexität, keine finessse kein Funk, super kurzer Abgang... Muss echt sagen ich verstehe dieses Produkt nicht?🤷🏼‍♂️

Direkt nach dem Isla del Ron Long Pond 2008 probiert, im direkten Vergleich viel weniger Ester und Frucht - vielleicht ist meine Wahrnehmung auch nur weggebrannt. Die Nase ist fruchtig mit pflanzlicher Würze: Fruchtige Ester, grüner Tee, leicht faulig - entfernt wie bei Fijis. Im Mund geht der Rum richtig auf: Grüne Bananen, reife Äpfel und Melone, dann salzige Olive, junges Getreide, leicht rauchige Gewürze und das alles bei fantastischer Alkoholintegration. Holz merkt man nach 20 Jahren irritierenderweise kaum. Der Abgang bringt wenig neues, leichte Bitterkeit ansonsten die pflanzliche Seite des Profils. Das ist großes Kino.

In der Nase sehr, sehr fruchtig und Ester. Ausgewogen und gut integrierter Alkohol. Im Mund sehr knusprig und pelzig. Was soll ich sagen? Ein handwerklich sehr guter Rum, ein Hampden-Ester-Liebhaber hat daran die helle Freude. Mir schmeckt diese Art von Rum leider gar gar nicht.

There is nothing bad in particular with this one. However, on the first go there is just nothing exiting really. Somewhat reminds me of younger, continentally aged KFMs 🤔

Ein sehr intensiver Long Pond mit viel Ester. Die lange Lagerung macht ihn aber schön Rund und der Rum ist wunder zugänglich. Die 60% wärmen, ohne unangenehm zu sein. Zum Ende durchaus Bitter und schön Astringent. Ein toller Long Pond, aber es gibt noch bessere Abfüllungen.

Insgesamt eine sehr gute Abfüllung, bei der mir persönlich etwas Frucht fehlt. Eher adstringierend.

C: W wine S: Ever since I tasted that 2000 Duncan Taylor 15y at 51,9% (cask No: 65) I’ve always tasted papaya in almost every continental aged rum from Long Pond. I also get pineapple, cherries and a sophisticated amount of nail polish remover. Is that esters? I think it is. This 20y Sample X reminds me of the 18y LP Mezan. M: Very nice! With a soft pineapple note that reminds me of my beloved Kill Devil C<>H 2007 vintage. Lemons and brine are present too, slightly peppery as well. F: Again, nice with citrus, not too long though. B: Yes! It´s quite amazing how continental and tropical aging can differ in the case of Long Pond. If I would taste this rum blind together with the Velier VRW (Low-Ester) I would never have considered that they came from the same distillery.

Rundes Ding. Erinnert ein bisschen an junge PM mit Olive, Lakritz und Anis. Hinzu schöne Frucht. Alkohol top integriert.
