Got a sample of this rum for free from RumX. Long Pond is known for its funky and high-ester style of rum. It’s pot still distilled in 2001 whereafter it has been continentally aged in an ex-rum barrel for 21 years before bottled at cask strength in 245 bottles at 56,4%. Overall a fruity and funky rum.

Jamaica No. 8 vs No. 11 vs No. 12 Nose clearly goes to No. 11. very nice basket of fruits and overripe banana. Is this maybe one of the 2000 VRWs vs LPS for the other two? No. 12 is nice with some tropical fruits and spices. No. 8 is dominated by wood and remains sharp even after > 1h in the glas. Taste: 2001 (8) much better on the palate vs on the nose. However, a little thin and unassuming. Not bad, though. 2000 (11) sweet and fruity on the palate as well. Easy going but also quite nice. If anybody knows the mark on this, let me know 🙂 Overall my winner out of the three 1998 (12) also very round and easy going. A little more wood and roasted notes. Feels a little thin and uninspired to me, however.

The palest of the three new Long Pond of Colous of Rum. But with the most intense and fruit accentuated nose of all three! The aromatic proximity continues until the finish, is there possibly a mistake on the label? Super straight rum until the finish! Striking similarity with the profile of Hampden!

Nose Funky with solvent (ester) fruits and neat wood impact.On the palate Woody, fruitiness decreases significantly. Bitternotes very pronounced. Nose and palate are already distinctly different. Good base for a blend in May Tai together with a young HD or NY very well imagine.

Definitely the highlight compared to the No.11. Exactly what I’m looking for in a Long Pond. The girlfriend had a sniff and sipped the rum and found it disgusting 🤣

Beautiful LongPond Rum, pineapple you have immediately in the nose and on the palate, light wood notes and overall very fruity.
