Bottle:upper average

I really like their strategy of marking - 21 means at least 21 yo rums used. No SOLERA no, Zacapa like 23yo meaning the oldest one is maybe 23yo....

After tasting of Appleton 12yo, which I really liked, I was expecting the 21yo to be super rum, with no added sugar and mature taste, which will blow my mind...Unfortunately it is not as excellent as expected, definitely not bad, but with its price tag...

Sugar: 0 gpl. If you don't like a sweet rum, then this is one of the best out there. This is a rum for special occasions with friends that don't like sweet rums as Appleton 21 is expensive in Canada at $150 per bottle. It has a nice wood and caramel flavor to it, has a soft aroma and great burn and is very smooth. If you find this too much Oak then I suggest putting just a drop of water or a small piece of ice in the glass to open up the flavour.

This rum was first tasted by me a few years ago and it is still on top as one of my favorites. A bit pricey.... Woody, Thick, full. Vanilla and nutty nose.. Warm delivery.. Love it! For special times...

Expensive, but worth the price. Incredibily crafted with the right amount of taste to it. One of the best rums in my collection.

One of my top rums that are in my price range and commonly available.
It's matured, refined and complex. Still I would have thought more wood in it. I still got half bottle and need to refresh my notes.

You can taste the barrel aging. On it's way to rivalling cognacs

De Appleton Estate 21 Years heeft een volle koperen kleur en een leeftijd van 21 jaar. De rum geeft een prachtige nootachtige smaak met hints van vanille en sinaasappel. De zachte en fijne smaken die hierbij om de hoek komen kijken zijn amandel, cocos en fijn eiken. Deze bijzonder oude en inmiddels zeldzame 21 jaar oude Caribische vriend is alleen voor de echte fijn proevers en collecters, met zijn zoete afdronk van bruine suiker blijft dit één van de beste rum die er is.

Pretty one complexity at all. If you're a bourbon lover and dig oaky sippers, this rum is for you.

Très bon rhum
Assez sec et puissant. Arômes très complexes. Assez typique des rhums jamaiquain.
