Long Pond 2000

Another session with Long Pond, the King of Wedderburn. But be warned, it’s a quite a large one. The “younger” 2000 Long Ponds were quite good already but they seem to get a lot better as they get older. Let’s see. The Rum Cask Long Pond 2000 13YO (58,2%): Compared to some of the other…
