How does this rum taste?

Aged for 37 years, this rare Jamaican rum from Long Pond distillery with 49.5% ABV offers a surprising sweetness with tropical fruit notes, particularly mango, but lacks depth for its age. A smooth sipper with a disappointingly swift finish.

“Erstaunlich frische Nase für das hohe Alter. Die Fruchtnoten rücken am Gaumen aber mit zunehmender Länge in den Hintergrund, dafür kommt eine schöne Süsse und etwas mehr Holzeinschlag zum Vorschein - dabei kippt der Rum aber keinesfalls in zu bittere Sphären. Leider fehlt mir insgesamt aber ein wenig die aromatische Raffinesse, weshalb am Ende ein zwar sehr leckerer Rum im Glas bleibt, der sich aber nicht ganz in die absolute Topliga einreihen kann.”

“For me one of the nicer bottlings of 80ish Long Ponds. It presents a rather fruity nose with mango and peach alongside vanilla and wood. On the palate wood is (unsurprisingly) more present but the overall picture is nicely balanced with fruity notes and enough liveliness despite its long aging.”

Aroma

Spicy Woody Dried fruit Banana Tropical fruit

Taste

Barrel Vanilla Tropical fruit Leather Nutty
