Long Pond 1983 40yo 51,6% The Sins Avarice Robert Bauer and DistiliaColour: gold. Nose: I was saying the other day, with regard to Brora and Port Ellen, that these styles of spirits, when housed in moderate and intelligent casks, seem just indestructible, eternal, becoming just a tad more complex year after year, without ever losing their DNA or nearing their end. A bit like a horizon that recedes as you advance. Black olives, a couple of drops of diesel oil, anchovies, varnish, turpentine, fir wood ashes, a hint of new plastic, newly unboxed electronic gadgets (think a new iPhone), lemon… With water: magnificent tar, tarmac, new tyres, and a slight Port Ellen touch. But of course. Mouth (neat): simply eternal. Lemon juice, liquorice, tar, varnish, olives, cane syrup. With water: superb precision. Lemon, ashes, tar, olive oil. Finish: perhaps not immensely long but with a coastal, hyper-salty side that reminds one of oysters and whelks. And of course, brined olives. Comments: the very moderate price for a Jamaican of this age would indeed suit a somewhat frugal enthusiast. Well played. The juice is simply magnificent. I suggest adding water only with great moderation. SGP:563whiskyfun.com
