Al naso è molto particolare con questi sentori di esteri, muffa, salamoia e frutta quasi marcia. Gusto decisamente delizioso più rotondo con il marchio tipico di long pond, esteri pronunciati, sentori di pelle e ananas maturo! O lo odi o lo ami! Per me un rum molto buono!

🚨 Einer der extremsten Rums, die ich kenne. Streng, fleischig, Ester, vergoren und ein Hauch von „Hering“. 😳 Nichts für schwache Nerven. Am Gaumen dann eine tolle Würzigkeit und Süße. Ein echtes Erlebnis!

Oh the so feared TECA 2003..sooo long I’ve wanted to try this one..and thanks to Mto75, I can finally taste this rotten beast. The nose is quite promising..all the decadent flavors are there..rotten fruits, overcooked greasy meat with a bunch of rocks in it, with a touch of vanilla and wood to messing up the flavor profile! The palate is a rollecoaster: starts decently sweet, with anice and vanilla, than rapidly turns into savory meat and again into rotten grilled pineapple, all with a very pronounced astringency. The finish remains savory, with wood and leather. Even if the sample was prepared after the bottle was already opened, this is truly a challenge for the rum lover. Although, gotta say that the oxidation makes it more manageable and pleasant! All in all, the TECC is my favorite!

Goûté après le TECA 2003 NRJ puis le TECA 2005 Velier. Le nez me semble moins riche que les deux précédents. C'est toujours plein d'esters. Le bois est plus prèsent. Mais ça semble moins complexe et moins bon. En bouche, la bonne surprise ! C'est puissant, très boisé. Puis les fruits prennent leur place. Ça reste piquant en fin de bouche. Du début à la fin, une sensation de gourmandise sucrée est présente. Elle est étonnamment complétée par une touche salée. C'est elle qui fait pour moi la différence avec le 2007 de la même série. La finale est très longue. Je crois qu'après un brossage de dents on le goûte encore. Le rhum est alors plus lourd, avec du bois, du cuir. La sensation salée plus présente encore. Au-dessus de 2007. En dessous du 2005. Super rhum. C'est franchement très bon.

Très bon rhum.. Superbe nez axé sur les fruits exotiques très très mûrs, la colle, le vernis... classique 🇯🇲 En bouche l'alcool est bien intégré c'est un plaisir à boire. C'est bien acide on sent bien les ester. Mais c'est un profil spécial d'où les avis tres different sur ce rhum

Very lovely delicious long pond. Not a high end LP but a good one. A lot of ester in the nose paired with trop. fruits and overripe fruits and wood. In mouth spicy but harmonious. The finish is quite long and smooth with some notes of leather and salt. The alcohol could be integrated better. The initial price tag was quite good, now it’s to expensive

Du champignon, pungent fruit, œuf pourri, noix. Bref un rhum bourré de défaut mais que je trouve étrangement plaisant. Je pensais pas un jour aimer les œufs pourries, c’est chose faite

Geruch: Ester-Aromen sind schon von weitem zu riechen. Süß mit Aromen von Lösungsmittel. Fruchtig – vor allem Apfel, frisch gepresster Apfelsaft. Geschmack: Süß und fruchtig im Mund, Apfel. Wow! Beim Schlucken sehr lecker und elegant. Würzig, alkoholisch und sehr fruchtig. Pfeffrig und holzig. Abgang: Lang Würzig, immer noch fruchtig. Im Nachgeschmack trocken und holzig - nicht mehr so angenehm. Fazit: Sehr lecker 89 Punkte

Rubber notes are too overpowering, unfortunately.
