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...
21 años en barricas, garantizado en un certificado que viene con la botella!!! No pierde su característico sabor Appleton, es muy suave en la boca, se disfruta en realidad!
Yesterday , I had the opportunity to taste the Appleton Estate 12y and today is the turn of the 21y. I'm now delighted to be able to taste the 30y !
The 21y has a nice amber color and offers long and persistent legs on your glass.Smooth when the burn is gone, spicy with a wood flavor well present and long and pleasant after taste.
A little bit to expensive for me as daily sipper but definitively added on my wishlist Thanks again to my dear colleague for this discovery....
distinto a todos los q tengo,es muy fácil recordar su sabor único,en nariz naranjas,chocolate,madera,es un ron seco,que se queda el sabor impregnado en el paladar,fantastico
Een zeer lekker rum complex. veel smaken iets voor kenners. Perfect met een medium sterke sigaar
Nutty, oaky, with toffee in my glass, the nose gives no hint to the complexity in the glass.
Very good sip rum. A never really like Appleton's rum as much of mainstream critics, I just think they lack personality or specificity. Nonetheless a solid complex rum that every rum lover will enjoy.
I originally tasted this paired against El Dorado 21 and quite enjoyed it. I then bought a bottle and was not that impressed. There was a large amount of white floating sediment (pretty sure it's ok perhaps sugar crystallisation as I still drank it and I'm still alive?). Taste didn't wow me compared to El Dorado 21 and Zacapa XO which I also bought bottles of. Also I contacted Appleton Estate about quality issues and no response. Their facebook feed link from their website no longer worked and last tweet was a year ago so not sure what's happening there
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
Ce rhum est sec et puissant. Comme je les préfère plus « caramélisés » et compte tenu de son prix élevé, je ne lui accorde qu’un 7.
Il faut pourtant lui reconnaitre de belles qualités : belle couleur ambrée, nez subtil, force de caractère, et nombre d’épices se mêlent au bois pour réchauffer la gorge. Belle longueur.
Just received my bottle today ! Produced in 2009, N° 5,318 ;-)
The 12 years was great but I'm waiting to taste the 21. Oak taste and caramel are present and first taste of citrus noze. Great value, a must have in any collection.
This has the authentic Appleton's oak taste. It is a medium body rum, smooth yes, However at this price its too dry for me. I just don't like that authentic Appleton oak taste.
Personally save your money and buy an English Harbour 25. Far better and much more rewarding.
Edit given time this baby will grow on you?
A "lighter" sipping rum, reminiscent of a brandy. hints of citrus, spice & sugars on the nose, offers a room filling bouquet when poured. Classic Jamaican style, more impressive packaging than in my youth. Essential to any distinctive home collection!
have always been a big fan of Appleton estate.... The 21yr old is definitely worth cash.... Awesome on the nose, thick and full on the palate. Nutty, chocolate, vanilla,
Just not as complex, long lasting on the palette or luxurious as I'd have hoped from a product aged this well. It just comes over a bit 'thin' and I can't see any justification for the price. Try Flor de Cana 18 instead.
One of the pricier rums in my ever expanding collection, this one has piqued my interest for some time since I first spied it at a local bev outlet. Worth the price? Absolutely. Very unique taste - not too sweet. Highly recommended.
