An ultra-high ester rum, not for the faint of heart, bottled as part of the National Rums Of Jamaica series.
The National Rums Of Jamaica series is the first time that rums from the Long Pond distillery have been bottled at high proof and without additions. Rums under the label include recreated styles of long-closed distilleries as well as remarkable, often high ester, distillations from the distillery rarely seen in their natural form.
These are rums for the curious and the adventurous, rare windows into the wide spectrum and history of rum.
The TECC mark of 1,500/1,600 gr/hlpa esters at distillation is one of the highest ester marks made by Long Pond and the highest allowed by Jamaican law.
Distilled through a pot still in 2007, this was matured for 11years in Jamaica and vatted from 11 barrels. With 57% angels share, there are 3,325 bottles worldwide.
One of the richest, heaviest rums we have on the shelves â if not the most. Nail polish, aniseed, spice initially followed by concentration fruits â lemon, pineapple banana, mango.
Esters are the chemical compounds that give rum various flavours, often fruity ones. High ester rums after often characterised as âfunkyâ or âpungentâ and a reading of 500 gr/hlpa certainly fits that âhighâ category.
These ultra-high ester rums were traditionally mixed with rums of lower esters to alter flavours in end product, and there is an argument that they were never designed to be drunk in isolation like you would a normal rum, but the National Rums series is a rum connoisseurâs only opportunity to experience these traditional styles.
