This is the new version of the 21 year old rum from Appleton: it has a new bottle with a nice heavy copper top on the cork.
This is some good stuff. Excellent sipper, it's a very well balanced rum. Sweet but not too sweet, fruity, vanilla, moderate burn. One of my favs.
Tasted the older and newer versions of Appleton 21 yr and could not detect any difference between the two. So my narrative for this one is pretty well the same as the older version.
Just had a glass of Appleton 21 yr rum and it is indeed really good. In comparaison to the 12 & 15 year versions I find it more complex and smoother. The difference, however, is not as much as I had expected. Is it worth the difference in the price? I don’t mind to pay a higher price for the 21 as it is a treat for me but don’t know if I would if this was my go to rum. Excellent bu5 pricey.
Update: the more I have this, the more I appreciate its complexity. Rums at this price point are ideal as gifts, and the presentation of this rum is great. Beautiful box and without a doubt the best and heaviest cork I've ever seen. Beautiful amber colour in the glass and notes of orange, brandied cherries, raisins and apricot are finished with oak on the nose. On the palate the rum is nice, but a little sharper than one would expect from a rum of this age. This is a fairly dry rum without much sweetness. Overall a nice complex rum.
