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.
Now this is some good stuff
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...
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.
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.
"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. ."
