How does this rum taste?

The Long Pond "TECA" 2003 by Velier intrigues with its bold, high-ester profile. Scents of overripe fruit and solvents lead to a complex, spicy taste with wood and pepper nuances. Finish is long but polarizing—some find it too extreme.

“🚨 One of the most extreme rums I know. Austere, meaty, esters, fermented and a hint of "herring". 😳Not for the faint of heart. Then on the palate a great spiciness and sweetness. A real experience!”

“I think the NRJ TECA 2003 is about the most difficult rum I've ever had the privilege to rate. The Mark TECA is legendary and the LP TECA 2005 from HV is clearly the top dog. The TECA 03 is very special (thanks for saying that Tobi). I actually understand all the haters BUT: At this rum divide the spirits. For me, the profile of TECA 05 is”

“Tasted after the TECA 2007 NRJ and then the TECA 2005 Velier. The nose seems less rich than the previous two. Still full of esters. The wood is more present. But it seems less complex and less good. On the palate, a pleasant surprise! Powerful, very woody. Then fruit takes its place. The finish remains spicy. From start to finish, there's a sensation of sweet indulgence. It's surprisingly complemented by a touch of saltiness. For me, this is what makes the difference with the 2007 from the same series. The finish is very long. I think you can still taste it after brushing your teeth. The rum is then heavier, with wood and leather. The salty sensation is even more present. Above 2007. Below 2005. Super rum. Very good indeed. Edit: tasted it several times since and I really love its extreme character and endless length. Even after tasting a lot of things, this TECA still leaves me with a crazy impression.”
