Now this is some good stuff
I have polished off 2 bottles of this rum so far and I have one bottle squirreled away for a special occasion. As another reviewer mentioned, this was a limited edition bottling that is pretty much impossible to find now. Of all of the highly aged rums I've tried (15 years of age or greater), this is my favourite. Because this rum is a blend of 30 year old rum with much younger rums, you get the deep spicey, vanilla, oak notes, but it is tempered with the freshness and vibrancy of the younger rums.
Nose: Very aromatic. Mushy banana, flan con leche in caramel sauce, brown sugar syrup, butter pecan, orange zest, seared pineapple, vanilla custard, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and a touch of anise.
Taste: Brown sugar, molasses, vanilla buttercream, dried stone fruits. These notes develop over time in the glass with baking spices, orange peel, apricot and clementine on the exit. Exquisite!
Elusive "Limited Edition, Out-of-production, None left anywhere" Rums are a PITA to find, but when you do you appreciate them even more.
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.
If it wasn't for the fact that there are so few bottles of this one remaining, I'm pretty sure it would get to be my "GoTo" rum for special occasions.
A robust and complex blend created around a rare and exquisite 30 year old rum, a testament to the art of the master blenders that have made Appleton estate rums world famous.
Luscios rum structured from a mixture of rare vintage rums up to 30 years. It is a rum that in the glass releases fruity aromas, vanilla, sweet, spices, citrus and dried fruit; then when tasting it you can perceive flavors like vanilla, sugar, orange, and dried fruit, without a doubt it is an exquisite rum, super recommendable, perhaps above the Appleton Estate 21 years.
Riquísimo ron estructurado a partir de una mezcla de rones añejos raros de hasta 30 años. Es un ron que en la copa libera aromas frutados, vainilla, dulce, especias, cítricos y frutas secas; luego al probarlo se puede percibir sabores como vainilla, azúcar, naranja, y frutas secas, sin dudas es un exquisito ron, super recomendable, tal vez por encima del Appleton Estate 21 years.
While not Appleton'signature top rum, the taste is outstanding. This blend includes rums up to 30 years old and to me has more flavor than their 21 year old bottle.
This is a great rum. Almost a great as the 21 year old but I'm still going to give it a 10 Rating because the rum is still outstanding. The only bad thing about this rum is that I can't get it in the US.
This is a remarkable aged blend that will leave your throat and belly warm. It's very smooth for such a potent blend, it needs to be sipped and served in a proper glass to dissipate the vapors so you can truly smell he aromas.
