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.

Ein erstaunlicherweise dünner und leichter LP mit wenig aussagekräftigen Aromen! Anhand der Daten hatte ich mir etwas mehr versprochen

Ebenfalls ein schöner Einstieg für Jamaica und Long Pond. Auch hier zuerst unscheinbar und mit Beginn des Nachklangs stärker werdend. Der (gleichzeitig verkostete) Jamaica No. 10 erscheint mir definierter und intensiver, was mir besser gefällt. Der Nachklang ist hier im Vergleich auch kürzer und weniger intensiv. Guter Einsteiger-Rum.

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.

Got a sample of this rum for free from RumX. It’s a 23yo pot still rum distilled in 1998 continental aged in an ex-Rum barrel whereafter it’s bottled at cask strength in just 163 bottles at 52,7%. Overall a fruity, soft and round rum. Not a typical Long Pond.

Funky, tropische kandierte Früchte, bisschen Holz und leicht bitter.

Schöner Long Pond mit einer gewissen Fruchtigkeit. Vom Ester-Gehalt eher hinter den 2001er LPS-Abfüllungen. Guter Easy Sipper, aber in Summe fehlt es etwas an Komplexität und Intensität, um weiter oben mitzuspielen.
