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.

Got a sample of this rum for free from RumX. Long Pond is known for its ultra-funky, high-ester style of rum, but this one is a VRW which marks quite low esters. It was pot still distilled 2000 whereafter it was continental aged for 21 years in an ex-rum barrel before bottled in 220 bottles at 56,4%. Overall a very light low esters Long Pond that tastes much better (more) than its aromas.

This is a wonderful rum as an introduction to Jamaica in general and Long Pond in particular. Nose and also at the beginning of the palate appear unimpressive. But after that it really gets going: fruit esters and spice! I like it when a rum delivers a twist like that. Overall, rather a low-ester rum but the Long Pond signature is clearly there.

Nase sehr zurückhaltend. Honigmelonne ,Banane und etwas Holz . Alkohol nicht sehr Präsent. Am Gaumen Alkohol deutlicher zu spüren aber nicht schlimm . Banane, Honig(Melone) angenehme leichte Süße . Abgang dann leicht Bitter und etwas Holzig. Nicht schlecht aber irgendwie sehr schwach in allem.

Sweet rum from LP distillery without LP profile? Maybe I am just drunk... But it tastes good. Like more fruity Diplo.
