CoR Long Pond Jamaica No. 12 LPS 1998 23yr 52,7%

RX14122 Good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 163 bottles Under 250€

The Jamaica No. 12 LPS is a rare and limited edition rum hailing from the Long Pond distillery in Jamaica. Distilled in 1998 from molasses in a pot still, this cask strength masterpiece has been aged for 23 years, and bottled by The Colours of Rum at an ABV of 52.7%. With only 163 bottles released, this distinguished beverage presents a delightful combination of ester, vanilla, and tropical fruit notes in the aroma, followed by a palatable balance of candied, tropical fruit, and spicy flavors with a hint of allspice. Despite being a bit light on the palate, the Jamaica No. 12 LPS is considered a good easy sipper by RumX users, who appreciate its fruity, soft, and round character. This elegant offering is an excellent introduction to Jamaica and Long Pond rums for both novices and aficionados alike.

How does this rum taste?

The Jamaica No. 12 LPS offers a subtly fruity, soft, and rounded profile, not typical for a Long Pond rum. Although it's smooth and easy to sip, it lacks the complexity expected from its 23-year aging and the characteristic LPS vigour.

“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.”

“Also a nice entry for Jamaica and Long Pond. Again, unimpressive at first and becoming stronger with the onset of the aftertaste. The (simultaneously tasted) Jamaica No. 10 seems more defined and intense, which I like better. The aftertaste is here in comparison also shorter and less intense.Good entry-level rum.”
