The Rum Mercenary & Kintra Long Pond Sample X LongPond LPS 2001 20yr 60,1%

RX11564 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 127 bottles Under 250€
“Robust, funky Jamaican rum with well-integrated alcohol and fruity esters.”

Sample X LongPond LPS is a 20-year-old, cask strength Jamaican rum, produced at the Long Pond distillery and bottled by The Rum Mercenary & Kintra. Distilled in 2001 using molasses and a pot still, this limited release of only 127 bottles has an ABV of 60.1% with LPS mark. Users describe it as a remarkably fruity and estery rum with high ester notes, evident in the aroma and flavor. It offers a mix of pineapple, cherries, citrus, and a touch of nail polish remover, while the palate presents an engaging mix of green bananas, ripe apples, and melon as well as a salty olive and subtle smoky spices. With well-integrated alcohol, this rum has been appreciated for its roundness, complexity, and astringency, though some users desired more fruitiness. Overall, Sample X LongPond LPS is a quality rum, particularly enjoyed by Hampden-Ester and Long Pond enthusiasts.

“I just stand on LPS! For me, one of the bottlings in 2021. Mega great bottling together with the Duchess LPS, of course, therefore, the same rating, since it is the same cask. Legendary mark.”

“For a 20y old long pond is extremely little offered here in terms of taste.... Even after tasting 3x and breathing for over an hour this is just really thin.... Some ester, some yellow fruit, but no complexity, no finesse, no funk, super short finish...Must really say I don't understand this product?🤷🏼‍♂️”
