“In a blind tasting, I would have guessed a blend of Long Pond and (very good) Belize. Extremely exciting profile. Very approachable yet complex. Atypical and very exciting character. A real highlight in the RumSponge tasting!”

“Heavy sweetness of vanilla, caramel and coconut, which briefly make you think of Belize, Barbados or even New Yarmouth 1994 - accompanied by tropical fruits, which due to the ester number in the comparatively low range but appear relaxed and make the rum quite drinkable. Interesting release, which I would not have blindly assigned ad hoc Long Pond.”

Aroma

“An ITP and mW the first 2004 LP. The nose goes towards cake dough and toffee, less fruity than eg the LP ITP-15 from 2006. On the palate spicy with allspice, vanilla, barrel. Delicious part!”
