"Long Pond has a name among the blenders for its high-ester style. In Jamaican parlance this is a 'Wedderburn', and experts prize it for its perfumed bouquet and marked taste, even when relatively young. These characteristics stem from the controlled addition to the mash of 'dunder' which naturally increases flavour levels. This is the residue of earlier fermentations which has been allowed to develop bacterial growth, and its use is akin to that of 'sour mash' in American whiskey distillation. "

Long Pond is probably the distiller of the Planation Jamaica 1998.
