An excellent tasting rum that has hints of cocoa, nuts and oak. Well worth it and highly recommended!

Skvělý suchý rum. Ve vůni cítím pomeranče a nádech sladkosti a dubového dřeva, chuť je jemná a suchá a závěr je dlouhý a překvapivě silný na tu voltáž, kterou má. Cítím v něm zejména kakao a ořechy a na patře i sladkost. Určitě se k němu ještě vrátím.

I was truly excited to find this bottle after a modest search over the past several weeks. The presentation is outstanding. The blue container is something to behold.

However, the deep admiration was soon halted. It's a remarkable rum, just not enjoyable.

The 12 year old tops this one.

Oak, spice and molasses on the nose, but the palate is less clear with a pretty good burn.

Still worth the price of admission, though.

Ce rhum se présente sans sucre ajouté avec un prix plutôt élevé (100-110€) qui nécessitera un peu de recherche pour être trouvé.
Sûrement une des premières bouteilles sur laquelle j'ai passé le cap de la centaine d'euros, avec une grande appréhension d'être déçu et de regretter cet investissement, ce rhum ne m'a pas non seulement plu, il m'a étonné. Il est élégant, son parfum se dégage sans peine de sa substance pour laisser en bouche des arômes distinguable sans peine, d'une grande finesse, avant de ressortir la chaleur de l'alcool et de laisser un subtile goût sur la longueur qui me fait penser à la cassonade.
Une sacrée claque gustative d'une douceur incroyable, je conseille pour toutes personnes intéressées par la découverte de ce que j'appellerai sans peine "un bon rhum".

Appleton Estate 21 is a blend of Jamaican copper pot distilled rums which have a minimum age of 21 years. It is bottled at 43% ABV. Nosing reveals oak, chocolate and toffee notes and vanilla together with brown sugar. Palate shows again a lot of sweetness for an unsweetened rum with nice brown sugar, tropical fruits and creamy toffee notes. The oak is present heavily on the finish but it is nice, very long and satisfying.

Smagt til romhattens romfestival 2019. Jamaica rom er sjældent mig, simpelthen ikke søde nok.

Having drank Zacapa 23 for 1/3 the price, I found this extremely disappointing and off-putting. It has a very hot profile that makes the subtlety of the rum flavors all but disappear in the alcohol burn. Perhaps in a bourbon, this would be acceptable, but it really detracted from the experience and left me wondering why in the hell I dropped 120+ on this bottle when I could have bought 3 Zacapa 23...
