Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
A fine sipper, that is what it is...
Un Rum agréable avec des arômes de cuir, de caramel.
Puissant tout en gardant une certaine douceur.
Long en bouche, on y revient pour une "dernière" gorgée.
Un rhum qui tiens ses promesses, très belle longueur, canelle, bois et cuir...un rhum à découvrir absolument !
Sehr aromatisch mit einem leicht "rauchigen" Geschmack. Mittelmässig süss.
enjoyed this a lot this is the 5th Appleton i've had and the 2nd best behind the 8 (won this on twitter)
Title says it all, although they both are quality rhum.
Très bon, mais trop cher à mon avis. Dans les 21 ans, je préfère l'El Dorado, qui est vraiment très bon.
This is the smoothest rum I've had so far. I'd give it a 10, except for the price. No burn at all.
Would always choose this one over any other Appleton
Very good for Appleton .Smooth . Price = 130$ in Jamaica .
Cel mai bun Appleton dintre cele băute până acum. Vechimea își spune cuvântul foarte clar în acest rom deosebit.
This is darn good stuff, like real good. Smooth smooth smooth. It's not that complex do to the fact it's so well blend together for their demise. I mean it's really good don't get me wrong, worth the price ? NO NO NO. How it works it enters smooth exits dry, transitions from semi sweet to dry during the enter exit process. Distinct Appleton taste just smoother. Honestly though very very pricey for what it is, by no means is it bad but you can get rums half the price that are just as good. Appleton has a distinct flavor which is moderately simple once blent together, oak, molasses, toffee, some allspice and vanilla, the cane they use has a very distinct flavor a dry but sweet sugar and that is essentially Appleton. Going from their lowest to their higher it's about all the same, the higher grade ones just hone in on their distinct flavor better with much reduced harshness. It's a very pleasant flavor none the less and this one has no alcohol smell in it so you can smell all the aromas for as long as you please.
After tasting the 12yr version of appleton which was great, even better than appleton VX (also good although a bit harsh) I was convinced that the 21 yr version was going to be insanely good....unfortunately not so much. It's good but tastes a bit watered down and much sweeter than the 12 yr version...much sweeter and weaker than I expected. It's too smooth in the wrong sort of way.
A lot of fruits, wood and minerals. Very straight but not annoying. Intense and persistent. Best Jamaican rum ever made. Best aftertaste I'ever tried.
Smaakperfectie.. zijdezachte Jamaicaanse rum. Heerlijk.
Once, a person of the staff of appleton told me: "Jamaicans say: white people drink black rum, black people drink white rum".
I don't know if it will be so, but this black rum is very very fine, smooth, warm, flavoured. But what is surprising, is its persistent taste even after half an hour.
Rounder and warmer than the 12 year old. Tastes appears after swallowing.
Un assemblage de rhum d'un minimum de 21 ans vieillit en fût de chêne. Rhum d'un beau dorée caramel. Un arôme de caramel et de vanille s'y dégage. En bouche on goûte la vanille et une note d'agrume. A la fin on sent les épices et le boisée du chêne. On le sent descendre sans brûler la gorge.
Appleton Estate 21-Year har kraftig duft af træ (eg / whisky fade), hvor smagen er helt anderleders blød og i mødekommen, en STOR rom vil jeg sige.
Appleton 21 has an excellent profile for the nose. It outshines rums that I mark higher in this category. You may particularly like it if you enjoy your rums on the drier side. It reminds me of Kirk and Sweeney 23yr. (with exception the K&S price point which is fantastic). Not my favorite but a very good rum.
Orange, vanilla and coffee notes. Sugary sweet finish.
A close friend gifted me this bottle, very good rum. Wouldn't mind having it again but the price makes it best left for the rare special occasion.
After being introduced to Appletons by a friend I was hooked. We went to the home of Appletons in Jamaica and bought the 21 year old and it really didn't disappoint, one of the smoothest rums I have tasted. Worth every penny!
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...
Did like a lot. This is one of my favourites -so far. Appleton 21 is not as sweet as you would expect based on the history and age. Some might say that it should actually be sweater. I find this product to be well balanced Rum which is worth of purchasing every time when possible.
I used to rate this to 9 but lately after tasting it I do have to drop it to 8
