Ein richtig guter Jamaicaner mit wenig Estern. Braucht 1-2h im Glas um sich zu öffnen. Morgen ein gesuchtes Sammlerstück. Die Musik dazu: Lennie Hibbert „Real Hot“.

Nonostante sia il rum con meno esteri della serie è davvero un ottimo rum! Amo questi long pond! Questa serie di 4 rum è incredibilmente buona!!

sehr entspannter Long pond. passionsfrucht und Vanille mit Klebstoff und Marzipan an der Nase. geschmacklich dann etwas würziger und holziger als erwartet, dazu eine schöne dunkle Kakao Note mit Vanillemark und Maracuja. im Abgang dann etwas bitterer nach Grapefruitschale, Rosine, Klebstoff und Lakritz, sowie leicht röstige Holz und Fass Noten. insgesamt eine echt schöne Nummer aus Jamaica Rum, Rosine und Kakao.💥 könnte insgesamt nur etwas runder und komplexer sein, der valynch hat hier klar die Nase vorn.

Un rhum jamaïcain très expressif et équilibré, qui offre des fruits tropicaux, des notes de solvants, d’ester et de colle, des saveurs pâtissières, épicées et de cuir au nez, un joli bouquet très équilibré. On retrouve en bouche les notes funky avec les esters et les solvants, une certaine sucrosité avec les fruits tropicaux, des notes sirupeuses avec du pain d’épices, du chocolat noir et de la vanille, des épices, du bois et du cuir, ainsi que des notes toastées. Le rhum est très rond, crémeux et intense, l’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale est plus tournées sur des notes fraîches et d’herbes, avec une amertume apportée par la réglisse et l’anis, une pointe de chocolat, de bois et de fruits. Une très belle pépite jamaïcaine.

Wow tolle Nase. Bombastische Kombination aus Fruchtestern und kräftig dunkler Schokolade. Am Gaumen ein sehr ähnliches Profil mit einem tollen schweren Mundgefühl. Anfangs noch etwas scharfkantig öffnet er sich nach einiger Zeit. Wundervoll komplexer Rum mit sehr vielen Nuancen zu entdecken.

This was a nice surprise especially because the proof has been so well integrated into this well balanced rum. A full bodied rum with all the funk that Jamaica has to offer. If you want to step up this one you'd have to go for the Cambridge 2005 :-) Price to quality is OK.

nach den anfänglichen Lösungsmitteln und Klebstoff kommen an der Nase rote Früchte, Rosinen, Marzipan, am Gaumen sehr rund, richtig lecker 😋

Sehr schöner Long Pond, aber auch bisschen langweilig. Kann in meinen Augen nicht ganz mithalten mit den anderen NRJ LP.
