I bought a bottle of this rum and to me it tasted like a somewhat better bottle of Appleton rum which it is. I just don't care for there other rums much and was expecting something different. I had a couple of drinks out of the bottle and gave the rest away.

Aromas of tropical fruits, vanilla, banana, cocoa, orange peel, prune, toasted nuts, and a subtle sweetness.
On the palate you'll find orange, touches of cinnamon and ginger, vanilla, toasted nuts, and a buttery, long, warm velvety medium finish.

I was able to pick up a couple bottles before they disappeared off LCBO shelves.
It has been a couple of years and I've only drank about half of one bottle(Private Preserve sure comes in handy here).
One of the tastiest rums in my collection; I would give it a 10 but I don't throw out 10's lightly. I think the heavy oak stops me from giving it a perfect score; not that I overly mind an oak taste.
This sure goes well with a Cohiba Siglo v

This rare limited edition 30-year-old rum is first individually aged for eight years, then blended together and aged for an additional 22 years in the highest quality oak barrels. A true collector's item for serious rum aficionados.

- ve vůni je výrazně vedle javorového sirupu cítit pomeranč
- chuť suchá, jemná, muškátový oříšek, zašimrá zázvor
- závěr dlouhý medově slaďoučký přechází v částečnou trpkost, dřevitost na jazyku, to ta spousta let ve zrání, 30-50ti leté rumy

Appleton Estate 30y u mne nastavil ve vůni i v chutí nový level, jednoznačně to nejlepší co jsem k dnešnímu dni ochutnal. Za mne 11 b 👏Ano, ta cena odpovídá výkonu, paráda 👍

Lots of good spices and slight hogo with a definite aged profile. Simply a great rum.

Colour and aroma are 10 easily with complex aromas of carmel, vanilla, touch of all spice and strong citrus, but the taste doesn't quite deliver what the nose was sold. A smooth wood flavour dominates the fore and after taste with just a hint of that caramel and vanilla hidden deep in the middle somewhere. For the age and money I had better expectations, by as a rum it is very easily and pleasurably consumed.

Nice aroma with wooden tones. First taste is bit sweet but only few seconds. After is turning in to very very long wooden whisky aftertaste with bitter tannin tones. Best way how to enjoy it is direct comparison with Joy and 21y. Perfect experience, but full bottle very expensive.

Great with notes of chocolate, caramel, cherry, cola, banana, guava, coconut, and pineapple.

Enjoyed a bottle of Appleton Estate 30y with my friend during vacation. Very nice and high end bottle and label design. Golden color. Offputting grass and funk straight to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Nasty burn at the end. This is very expensive Jamaican funk rum.

Viel Fasseinfluss, trockene Eichennoten sind sehr präsent. Die feine vanille-süsse ist dezent eingebunden. Etwas würzig und wenig fruchtig.
Sehr fein, mit langem Abgang.

I tried that during visit in Jamaica. I visited Appletone destillery...Great tour...private guide. At the end you can try collection of their rums. All common till 12 YO. But guide was great guy and saw that I know more about rums that simple tourist. Propose me to try 21 and 30 YO! Hell yeah! Normally that's definietly not my budget...very expensive! Very oak casks for sure. Great ballanced

When I tried this rum I was expecting a similar rum to the 21 year old but found it to be quite different. I will edit this again once I can taste it again.
Upon further review I changed my score to a 9. Much better than I remembered.

Exclusivamente para paladares exigentes en boca suave aterciopelado con notas de cuero vainilla y naranja ahumada

I was really excited to find a bottle of this on 28 Dec 2016 in a nearby liquor store (Ledger's Liquor in Berkeley California). $365 - I thought this rum had long been sold out.

I wasn't sure whether I'd like this, because I rated the 21-year a "7". But this didn't disappoint. This is the best Appleton I've had to date (maybe one day I'll get to try the 50?). EDIT: I tried the Appleton Joy, and I like that slightly better!

VERY smooth for a 45%abv rum. Like the other Appletons, this smells and tastes of oak, almond, vanilla, molasses, and nutmeg. This also has light notes of orange peel, and vanilla.

It's a little too dry for me to rate higher, but if you like the Appleton rums, this is one of the best.

I was blessed to sip away with a friend while in Italy. This is a nice bottle. Expensive. Serious Rum. For a collector or someone who is picky.... like me! Oak casks for sure. Medium finish and i honestly just thought it was a slight miss. But, one of the best rum's in the world!

Proud to own a bottle, but not something I crave. Very oak-forward, but not as much as the 50-year, and with more molasses. Well balanced, smooth finish.

My wife bought this rum for my 40th Birthday. It did not disappoint. How can I keep the cork tops in better shape. Some cork particles wound up in the rum.

its miracle in a bottle liquid gold i cant express myself how well balanced it is

...to rule them all, but definitely one of the nineteen. (THE ONE would be the 50 year old that I doubt I will ever be able to afford, but, hopefully, someone will offer to let me taste it)
:-)
This one is officially the most expensive rum I've gotten so far.
I'll be updating this review as soon as it arrives (2 LONG weeks), but if it follows in the tradition of quality/taste vs price ratio I've grown accustomed to from Appleton (so far, the "Exclusive" is my favourite and WAS my most expensive), it will be amazing.
I'll also be updating the Master Blender's Legacy as I will be receiving a bottle of that elusive elixir in the same shipment.

Not sure if it's worth the $, but definitely solid.
