The Long Pond Distillery, in the Trelawny Parish of Jamaica, makes deep heavily pungent rum known as ‘Wedderburn’, a style that first shipped to Wedderburn Webster of London in the late 1700’s. Produced from a long and slow fermentation with wild yeast, enhanced by the addition of dunder, this rum was double-distilled through a single pot-double retort still.
Deep caramel and muscovado nose; crystallised fruit with leather, pencil shavings and a touch of vanilla crème brulée. Soft approach on the palate gives way to a broad butterscotch flavour with honey, nutmeg and allspice on the finish.
