Truly a fantastic choice
This is labeled a twenty five year old rum, but is a blend with thirty and thirty five year old rums in it also, they labeled it twenty five as that's the youngest rum in it. This is the tastiest rum I've tried, it has great legs, taste and one of my favourite features, the slow smooth finish that tastes of honey. As I sip from my glass, I savour it with the thought that I wish I could afford to drink this delicious rum everyday!
Dieser Appelton hat das gewisse Etwas und der Preis ist moderat für diese Qualität,da hat sich Joy wirklich nicht zu ihrem Jubiläum lumpen lassen.Gefühlsmässig stecken da ein paar wirklich gute alte Jahrgänge drin.... Den 30er braucht man hier nicht mehr zu kaufen.Beim 50er kann ich nicht mitreden aber der Preis ist so utopisch,so gut kann ein Rum gar nicht sein.Dem Hören nach ist er jedenfalls sein Geld nicht wert,der Joy aber absolut.
10 Punkte gebe ich weil er in der Jamaika Liga insbesondere Appelton absolut Oberliga spielt. Gegen einen Skeldon ,Albion oder Kirsch Caroni sind 10 Punkte natürlich nicht gerechtfertigt,aber Das ist wieder eine andere Liga......
We are fortunate to live in a time of Joy Rum. There will be a time when these bottles disappear in the wild. For the current moderate price an amazing long aged rum that is quite possibly the most delicious and exquisite available now. The real kicker is that it is reasonable in price that I am going to bunker a couple extra to last as long as I need it to last.
I used to turn my nose up to Appleton's rum.but after having this Crisp and flavorful rum I actually started to appreciate the other offerings that were available to me though the LCBO
I was lucky enough to try this outstanding Appletons rum yesterday and what a treat it was ! Beautiful packaging and very unusual shaped bottle with a good solid cork. When poured it was left in the glass for 30 minutes just to sit. Wonderful mahogany colour with long , long legs and the smell , wow , i just could of sniffed it all night. As Earl commented .. it has an aroma of orange and honey but not the overpowering kind , just beautiful. My first sip was as good as the smell , warm,, spicey with a well balanced oak taste, sweet but not artificially so.. chewy honey and orange zest , no burn with the finish and an extra long very pleasant aftertaste. Its 45% so a bit of extra strength which really helps bring this lovely rum to life..
If your an Appletons fan then i suggest you beg , borrow or steal a taste of this ! Or if you normally like sugar bombs rums then maybe its not your thing but don't score this low because of your sweet tooth !!!
Expensive, but well worth it - not only does is taste great but when you open the box it presents very well. Im no good with describing flavors but to me its typical Appleton's - not overly sweet, with oak. Great rum.
Just tip it in ya.
45% ABV. The Christmas Eve (final) box in the 2017 DbtD rum advent calendar. "Joy" to the world?
No nose at first (?), but steadily emerges. Deep and rich. No alcohol notes. Dried fruits. Apricot, pineapple. Oak. Mead. Later, brine. Very deep, and satisfyingly rummy. Fruity palate. Slightly bitter. Hefty tannins. Sherry. Long finish. Lots of flavors here. Very complex, super tasty.
Can't argue with the lucky masses here; this is some top-notch stuff. This is what I would want in a parlor of some mansion in the English countryside. Now if only I could afford it...
Appleton Estate Joy is pure rum perfection. It is richly sweet, complex, fruity, woody, and all without any additives. I cracked this open to celebrate a very special occasion and it was well worth the effort and the celebration. Worthy every penny. This is as good as rum gets.
Sugar: estimated at 14 gpl. It’s doubtful that I will get a chance to taste the 30 or 50 year old Vintages which is why I give this 10 rating. The standard Appleton taste profile of oak, smoke, and vanilla is present but this rum has a honey and orange taste that smooths and balances the rum. It’s a masterpiece of rum blending and is a must have for Appleton rum lovers.
I bought one bottle when it first was available and just got a 2nd today as a birthday gift for myself. The packaging is very nice and the bottle is special and feels great in my hands.
Wonderful aroma, slight vanilla and citrus at first and a little oak. Very long legs in the glass.
Not sweet at all and not thick in the mouth. Just the perfect mouth feel.
The finish is pleasant with what I will say is a dunder component to it. I say dunder because that is how this was described to me when I tried the Mezan XO. That rum has overpowering dunder but is very mellow and pleasant. It actually lingers and keeps reminding me to try some more.
