Recommendable to most
It is in different league than 12yo Rare blend - not that chunky and not that "super tasty".
It is in different league than 21yo - no smoke no oak.
This is exceptional, unique* drink which will be hard to skip. Dry, a bit spicy, not very complex, but pleasant taste which refers to the Appleton class.
Cons: a bit strange, aggressive on the nose.
*Reminds me MG Master Select )
- vůně nasládlá, jemné mléčné karamelky, závan dřevitosti, vanilka, mix bylinek
- chuť kopíruje vůní, ty mléčné karamelky jsou velmi příjemné, o proti AE 12 už sladší, méně Jamajská, více do AE 21
Un gout de la Jamaïque, orangé, noisetté et un peu boisée. Un rhum d'une bonne puissance, fort et sec. Un peu cher au Quebec. Difficile de le comparer au 12 ans, j ai bu les 2 mais avec un trop grand intervalle, mais il reste que c'est un des meilleurs de la Jamaïque que j 'ai goûté.
This rum is great, very smooth and delicious. It didn’t last long at my place as it became my favourite of what I had in the rum cabinet. Sadly it was the last bottle at the liquor store that I bought it from. Highly recommend you try it if you can.
$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.
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,
Purchased a bottle of Appleton Estate 15 yr. Rum. Nose of sweetness such as caramel and vanilla. It's definitely a sweet full bodied rum. Upon tasting, I tasted hints of vanilla among other sweet flavors. Loved it. Too bad it's only available for a limited time.
I expected it would be a bit more deep and smooth. Some worked well, and other didn’t.
In overall I think the nose is okay. I sense the Appleton notes, but the flavor is not as deep and smooth as expected. Good way to start if you want to challenge your sweet rum tooth.
"Sweet vanilla and milk chocolate are backed up by some really nice zesty notes of oak. It ends with wafts of toffee and caramel."
