“I love Long Pond distillery!Vale Royal is the least pronounced as scents. It is a depowered version of the Long Pond TECA or TECC. This bottle is a reissue from a Jamaican distillery that has now been closed for decades.On the nose we smell solvents, spices including vanilla, chocolate and marzipan or otherwise pastry and a slight roastiness.On the palate we always have dark chocolate, nail polish or solvents, pastry, woody notes and always a slight peanut roastiness. I also seem to detect a faint note of tar on the palate.The finish is medium-long with hints of grape/ lychee.ABV beautifully integrated, better than its big brothers!A nice tasting rum well balanced, but with a strong character!”
