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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
