Appleton 15 yr

This is my fourth try with Appleton Rum, having previously tried and very much disliked Appleton Signature Blend, Appleton VX and Appleton 12 yr old rums. Appleton 15 yr Rum is currently only available in Canada and I decided to give Appleton rum one more shot. Glad I did as I really enjoy this rum which, in my opinion, has a completely different taste than the previous three. This rum is not as “funky” as the other ones and very dry, which is how I like my rum. I had previously rated the previous three Appleton a “3” but this one is certainly much better and deserve a higher rating.

My first positive experience with an Appleton offering. Will now consider spending more to acquire an older version from the Appleton distillery,

Well done!

I like it, I couldn't believe the difference from the regular rum, well done.

Typical Appleton style. Rich and complex. Overly bitter, too much to ignore (higher alcohols?).

Well-aged but flawed.

Classic Jamaican sipper yes, but does it bring much more to the table than the Appleton 12???

$58 CAD Smells pleasant. Taste is smooth, especially compared to the AE signature blend. Damn near no burn. It’s growing on me with every tasting. A bit of a bite at first, then some grass and wood with the sweetness, ever present.
Too bad it’s a limited edition, I guess I’ll have to try some of their other releases. Anyways, it’s damn good and hard to describe. I’m used to the sweeter rums so it’s a great comparison of something different. Quite nice.

The nose has lots of esters but for me, it’s not overripe fruit but a kind of mushroomy smell that is initially most prominent. With some time, ginger and banana do come up. There is also a good kick of nose-clearing, wasabi-style alcohol. That alcohol kick carries over onto the palate. There is a general woodiness and some banana on the palate and finish but not much else. With time a nice banana bread taste emerges on the finish. Interesting to try but would not be something I would seek out again. I’m a big Appleton fan so maybe this is a bit of a letdown, even though I appreciate the ability to have tried it.

This one fell a little short for me. It's missing alot of the wood and molasses that make the 12 year a favorite.

Pour un rhum de 15 ans, il est un peu décevant, j'ai déjà goûté de rhum plus jeune et meilleur à mon goût.

Far below the 12 year in flavor and color...it almost seems like it was aged in twice used barrels.
