  • Intro:

    This was distilled in 2006 by the now burned down Long POnd Distillery. I have all four releases in the series to review, and this is day one. Lets hop in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet toffee, roasted peanuts. Honey, brine and savory meats. Pineapple, lightly funky, loads of papaya. Really brutish tar note creeps in. Lightly wood, but overall very sweet with a nice fruity and savory streak to it.

  • Taste:

    Oh lawd. Brash and powerful. Thick, rich, loaded with salted caramel and some rotting fruit funk. Rich plastic, ash, molasses and honey roasted peanuts. Tons of vanilla here, a bit of oak, the heat is present and powerful.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich and complex. Molasses, creme brulee, rich funky fruits.

  • Overall:

    This is a powerful dram, but a lovely one. Its brash, complex and delicious. Im already excited for the next one.

  • Score:
