Tasty, but not quite great
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,
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.
El problema es que con las críticas que tiene esperaba más.......y como siempre cuando no acabo de encontrar lo que esperaba...hago una cata, este lo compare con uno de mis preferidos el Pampero aniversario y un buen rato más largo con brugal 1888, lamentablemente siempre a mi parecer perdió con ambos.
Por cierto costó 17'85€, los otros 14'95 y 47€
Holy Toletto, this stuff is rufffff. Decent nose but once it hits your tongue, hold on to your britches case ole Nelly is gonna blow. Very harsh and unimpressive. For a 15 I would expect much more smoothness and pleasantries to be desired but with this one, I will pass on going forward.
