How does this rum taste?

A young, fiery Jamaican rum with a bold profile. Notes of overripe tropical fruits, acidic sharpness, and wood meld with a complex, estery funk. Raw yet surprisingly rounded; a true expression of its short, intense tropical aging.

“Raw and intense. Nice basket of tropical fruits and notes of honey. Don’t let yourself be fooled by the sort aging. Jamaican climate did do quite a lot to this Long Pond. The aftertastes is very long - delivering the ester and fruity notes you can expect from an unaged STCE. Summary: Very nice young expression, adding some cask flavors to the unaged profile. Obviously not a long aged easy sipper, though.”

“This Long Pond is very young and you notice that in every facet. Compared to the great NRJ/Velier STC♥️E, this is particularly clear - the woody spices, which there provide for a fantastic integration of the wild fruit, are almost completely absent here. In consequence, the HV is characterized by an immature acidity, which rather reminds ah vinegar, the sweet aromas are still very light, like meringue and a quite present marzipan note. That of course abundant tropical fruit. Except for some olive, the LP typical vegetal flavors are almost completely absent.In the mouth it is then surprisingly round and here also vanilla and caramel from the wood appear. We also find again the estry acetic acid, the overripe fruits from the nose. While this acidity often becomes penetrating and unpleasant in other rums, here it is a highlight of the wild, young profile. In the finish, as is often the case with young high ester rums, smoky curry leaves are added, again showing a new herbal facet. Overall, a beautiful, wild Long Pond, which also makes a good figure in the Mai Tai.”
