“On the nose very pleasantly fruity and mild, hardly noticeable ester, but cookie, vanilla and cinnamon! Overall very surprising!On the palate first classic LP: papaya, passion fruit and ester! Some wood and slight acidity join with a metallic tone to it!The alcohol is not so well integrated, however, there he falls ggü other LP's same vintage clearly!The finish is very pleasant, but not very long!A good, but not outstanding LP!”

“Un Long Pond à sensations fortes. Le nez est puissant, très lourd sur les fruits tropicaux, les agrumes, l’abricot et les phénols (esters, colle, vernis). Vient ensuite la gourmandise sur le caramel, le toffee et le sucre brun. Il y a également des épices (vanille, cannelle), du tabac et des notes de boisé toasté en prime. Un profil intense mals avenant. Le côté avenant du nez s’efface complètement au palais : la bouche est extrêmement puissante et acérée, chaude et intense. On ressent une forte astringence, un côté métallique, pas mal d’épices (piment, cannelle) mais aussi du fumé, du fruité et des notes phénoliques. C’est comme un coup de marteau au palais. L’alcool est un peu trop agressif, une réduction aurait été la bienvenue. La finale est extrêmement longue, sèche et intense. Épicée, cacaotée, fumée, cafeinée et amère, le profil est aussi influencé par la réglisse et le thé noir. Un Long Pond qui propose une facette plus sombre et empyreumatique qu’à l’accoutumé, mais qui reste un peu trop extrême. Palais sensibles s’abstenir.”
