The Colours of Rum 1998 Batch No.3 Long Pond Jamaica Edition no.12 23yo 52.7% 700ml information

The Colours of Rum 1998 Batch No.3 Long Pond Jamaica Edition no.12 is a rare and limited edition rum with only 163 bottles released. This 23-year-old rum, distilled in 1998 from molasses in a pot still at the renowned Long Pond distillery in Jamaica, showcases the distillery's signature high-ester and ultra-funky style. Aged in a single cask and bottled at cask strength, it boasts an ABV of 52.7%. The result is a rum that combines ester, vanilla, and tropical fruit notes in the aroma with a palatable balance of candied tropical fruit and spicy flavors, including a hint of allspice.

Despite its age, this rum is recognized for its smooth and fruity profile, albeit slightly lighter on the palate, making it a good easy sipper. Rum enthusiasts from RumX have praised its soft, round character, though some find it lacks the complexity traditionally associated with Long Pond rums.

The Colours of Rum series, curated by Wealth Solutions in 2007, is known for featuring exceptional rums from iconic distilleries like Caroni, Hampden, and Foursquare. This elegant offering serves as an excellent introduction to the distinctive rums of Jamaica and Long Pond for both novices and aficionados alike. Long Pond, a historic sugar estate and distillery established in 1753 in Trelawny parish, is famed for its unique style of rum production, resulting in truly distinctive and exceptional rums.


  • How does The Colours of Rum 1998 Long Pond Jamaica Edition no.12 compare to other editions?

    Compared to the 2000 No.11 and 2001 No.8 editions, the 1998 No.12 is noted for its fruity and round profile. It is considered smoother but less intense and complex than the others.

  • What makes Long Pond rums unique?

    Long Pond rums are known for their high ester content and funky flavors, a result of traditional pot still distillation methods and long aging processes that contribute to their distinctive character.

  • Is this rum suitable for beginners?

    Yes, the smooth and fruity profile of this rum makes it an excellent entry-level choice for those new to Jamaican rums, while still being appreciated by experienced connoisseurs.

  • What are the tasting notes for this rum?

    On the nose, it offers tropical fruit, vanilla, ester, and spicy notes. The palate features soft, fruity flavors with candied fruits, allspice, and roasted elements, while the finish includes sweetness, umami, dark chocolate, peppery warmth, and lingering spice.

  • How many bottles were produced?

    Only 163 bottles of this limited edition rum were released, making it a highly sought-after collector's item.

Tasting notes

  • Aroma: Tropical fruit, vanilla, ester, spices, waxes
  • Taste: Soft, fruity, candied fruits, allspice, roasted elements, spices
  • Finish: Sweetness, umami, dark chocolate, peppery warmth, lingering spice
  • Overall: Despite its age, this rum offers a surprisingly smooth and fruity profile, lacking the complexity expected from a typical Long Pond rum.

Reviewer's opinion

Reviewers find this rum to be a good, easy sipper with a fruity and round character. However, some have noted that it lacks the complexity and intensity typically expected from Long Pond rums. While the aroma offers appealing tropical fruit and spice notes, the palate is perceived as somewhat light and unassuming. Despite this, it is considered a suitable entry-level rum for those looking to explore Long Pond and Jamaican rums.
