“Tasted together with Chris2302 some time ago. Many thanks to the donor at the time who made this possible for both of us 😀 (a little tip: it was on the 2nd GAF, so it's not difficult to find the donor 😉 ) I thought the smell was bomb. After the first sip, we agreed that this is a drop that will easily break the 9! Anyone who has the opportunity to try it. Do not hesitate! Insane part!!! Drink of the gods!”

“In direct comparison to the Distilia Charles Vane sister barrel: Quite similar on the nose and yet strongly reminiscent of the Hampden distillery. However, the cask selected by Robert Bauer is even more expressive. Compared to the Vane, it is even more elegant on the palate with perfectly integrated alcohol. Despite the long cask maturation, the wood does not come across as dominant, but elegantly underlines the incredible fruitiness of the Long Ponds. Wow, this rum is so much fun! Eternal finish... Wow, absolute Jamaican Champions League. Overall, I give it one point more than its excellent sister cask.”

“I was able to taste this at Whiskyfair Limburg with Robert. Right from the start, the Nose finds all the right places. It is a perfect integration of brown butter, yellow fruits, mid level esters and some sour blueberries. On the initial palate there is again the beloved browned butter, the esters are present, but never overwhelming, than we get to a sweetness you get from very good shortbread. The esters linger and are met by a whiff of tannines from a very dry cask, that dont really get all that bitter. The finish is incredibly long and focuses on the sweetness that developed later. Ester is again all along the journey and a hint of that dry casks wants to remain as well. It almost gets a little malty at the end, but that is after a long lingering aftertaste that slowly fades in a lovely memory of what you just sipped. This is a superior choice by Robert and i seriously love these buttery/buteric acid LP. Well done, my wallet hates you a little bit!”
