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...
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.
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 is a mans rum, with a truly flavorful finish and refined taste. Please....no cola for this one
Brown color of chestnuts with a good nose and great after tastes .
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 dimensional...no 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.
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.
Had the opportunity to taste this first time as part of a Master Class with the First Lady of Rum, Master Blender Joy Spence. Being one of few rums that actually are at least 21 years old this is pricy but worth every penny. The color, the bottle, the legs in the glass.. all leading into that lovely smell and taste.
21 år av kärlek!!
Härlig doft! Söt citrus.
Eldig med lång eftersmak,påtaglig fatkaraktär.
The color is like a warm sunset and the body moves you through the drink. This rum is very easy to enjoy and something to seek out.
Al for meget appelsin smag.
Lang eftersmag, dog tør.
This has to be one of my favourite Rums, the subtle overtures of the crisp fusion of the sweetness of the cane and the hint of the apple. This is perfect on ice or in a great dark and stormy. Though mixed with a twist of Orange peel on ice is devine....
Very flavourful. Warm but not a burning sensation. Very woody.
