Velier Long Pond TECC 2007 11yo (National Rums Of Jamaica)

The Schtick: This was distilled in 2007 by the now affected Long Pond Distillery. They lost some barrels in a blaze but otherwise seem fine and should be back to us in a decade or two. I have all four releases in the series to review, and this is day two, so lets keep the party going.

Review #1079 | Rum Review #59

Distiller: Long Pond

Bottler: Velier

Brand: Velier

Selection:

ABV: 62.5% ABV

Age: 11 Years


Nose: Peach, brown sugar. Rotting banana and papaya. Light mango. Plastic and rubber notes. Really interesting, fairly complex with funk showing its power, while not dominating.

Taste: Rich mouth feel. Sweet honey, caramel, papaya and lemon. The heat kicks into gear a bit, as does the funk. Rich burning rubber, light plastic, the rotting fruit is present and unmistakable. Lots of tobacco on the end.

Finish: Long, rich and funky. The fruit has almost completely given way to burning ash, rubbery funk and rotting fruits and leather. Tobacco is here and its really interesting.

Overall: This is powerful, unique and a real treat.

Thanks for reading!
