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.

Der blasseste der drei neuen Long Pond von Colous of Rum. Aber dafür mit der intensivsten und Frucht betontesten Nase von allen dreien! Geht deutlich Richtung Hampden! Die aromatische Nähe setzt sich bis zum Abgang fort, liegt hier eventuell ein Fehler auf dem Label vor? Super geradliniger Rum bis zum Abgang! Verblüffende Ähnlichkeit mit dem Profil von Hampden!

Parallelverkostung alles drei Long Ponds der Release Reihe (1998/#12 - 2000/#11 - 2001/#8). 1998 & 2000 beide etwas dünn und verhalten. 1998 aber der leckerere von beiden. 2001 klar anders, nicht so weich aber sehr lecker. Der 2000 für mich klar das Schlusslicht. 1998 der weiche runde LP typische. Der 2001 etwas kantiger aber dafür interessanter. Für mich ist der 2001 der interessanteste.

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.

Schöner LongPond Rum, Ananas hat man sofort in der Nase und am Gaumen, leichte Holznoten und insgesamt sehr fruchtig.
