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.

Bien qu'il soit passablement plus sec que les autres rhums industriels, il n'en reste pas moins qu'il est dans une classe à part. 9/10

ένα ρουμι που δικαιολογεί τα 21 χρόνια του. σε αντίθεση με το V/X αυτό ειναι ένα ρούμι που σου μένει!!!

Smooth and sweet, complex aromas with a big oaky influence. Very good, but worth the money?

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.

Denne rom er velsmagende og absolut ikke for sød. Har noter af karamel og citrusfrugter uden at det bliver for voldsomt.

My favorite rum only because I can't afford a bottle of 50 yr old. I Drink this one straight.

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
