How does this rum taste?

The Rare Cask VRW presents a punch of genuine Jamaican funk, complemented by complex fruitiness on a wooden platter. Despite its high ABV, its alcohol is seamlessly integrated. However, its elevated price point is considered excessive, even for its distinctive quality.

“Deuxième cuvée officielle de Long Pond, ce rhum sait faire parler ses atouts. Très élégant, le nez assemble parfaitement les notes d’esters et de vernis à ongles aux fruits exotiques et aux fruits rouges, le tout arrondi par le massepain, des épices douces et un boisé bien fondu. En bouche, une véritable concentration aromatique se forme sur les fruits tropicaux : banane, ananas, fruit de la passion, papaye, sans oublier les agrumes (zestes de citron) s’expriment librement. Le boisé épicé et les esters sont ici plus en retrait. L’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale, relativement longue, reprend la main avec les esters, le vernis, le boisé aux épices parfumées et les fruits exotiques. Un très bon rhum sur le papier, qui a tout pour plaire à un détail près : le prix, ici stratosphérique et incohérent pour une cuvée pareil.”

“Needs very long time to open up. Nevertheless, alcohol remains rather dominat on the nose. Very nice on the palate. Intense yet complex and very elegant. Verdict: nose somewhat disappointing. Palate very good, (European) price absolutely insane -> don’t buy this 🙃”
