Distilled using small-batch copper pot stills uniquely designed for Appleton Estate, this rum is a blend of several rums aged 21 years in American oak barrels. Once blended, the rum is re-casked for two years to marry the flavors.
Appleton Estate 21-year rum is produced in Jamaica on one of the country’s oldest and most renowned sugar estates. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes with a signed aging certificate by master blender Joy Spence.
That's some good stuff
I was disapointed...
I had a lot of expectation of this 21 years old rhum and it fell some how short even taugh it is a good one, you migh expect more from a 21 year old beverage.
I have tasted the 12 years since then and I would prefer it to this one. The price tag is probably playing a role in the deception.
This is a very complex rum - one that tends to be underrated. There ist orange and oak in the nose, more oak and some cacao and nuts in the mouth, pepper for the finish. Not for you, if you only like sweet rums. A delicate blend, though.
Grandissimo rum, non molto aggressivo per essere un jamaicano, ma probabilmente i 21 anni in botte lo hanno addomesticato. Perfetto per meditare...
For the price this rum just doesn't "carry it's weight" to justify a rating over 8. If I were a professor I'd give the Appleton 21 a B+. It's certainly smooth enough to drink on the rocks but the smoothness and finish just aren't there.
i have to say that I was expecting something more for the price. Some more complexity. Still, this is a pretty great rum. A bit of burn at the end. In this price range though there are several other bottles my hand would reach for before this one.
Before I received this as a gift a number of years back, I was mostly a "Rum-Mixer". Receiving this started me along the path towards drinking rum on the rocks and or neat.
Not as smooth as the 30 but also not as oaky; just right.
At $150 bones a pop here in Ontario; I'd say $100 to $120 would be a more reasonable price
"Tropical notes of sweet fruits a little orange zest and some nice notes of tropical fruit. It burns slightly on the finish which is very long and satisfying. ."
