This is the second time I've used this title. This rum is fantastic, but thank goodness I got to try it at a rum tasting before dropping $150. I love all of the aged Appleton rums, they have the perfect level of Jamaican funk for me for sipping. Is this better than the 12 and 15? Yes. Is it better to be worth 3 times the price? No. If this did something else, anything else, an interesting cask finish, a higher proof to punch up the flavor, this would be a 10, but it's still only 43% so 9 it is. I almost want to ding it a point for the price, but it's too good for that.

I got this bottle of rum after enjoying the 12 year old Appletons Estate rum, and was not disappointed, it oozes quality, and once finished, will be replaced with a fresh bottle.
I am not sure if it is just me, but I think I prefer the younger brother, the 12 year old just seems a bit smoother.
Certainly still one of the top 5 rums I have enjoyed.
I'm not good at describing what I taste, but this has a nice aroma, and a little sharp but also offers sweet taste to my palate, there are strong hints of the bourbon from the cask it was aged in, and it is a most pleasant and warming sensation when savoured.

8:On the nose, what's immediately striking is its balance. The woodiness is toasted, the alcohol present but well blended and no single aroma takes precedence over the others. Vanilla, floral notes, almond, caramel, woodiness and orange form a winning team with all tropical fruits and funkiness and roasted aromas that emerge on airing.
8,5:On the palate, the attack is both lively and greedy, sweetness is pleasant . The batch with is more present here than on the nose(long ageing), but blends very well with the molasses and brings us nutty notes, spices, caramel sweetness and overpowers that famous Jamaican funkiness with grassy and ripe tropical fruits notes. Walnut returns at the end and is a leading note through the palate.
8:The finish is relatively dry, yet long. A mixture of brown sugar and toasted woodiness accompany us for quite a while.
Well rounded and smooth, yet lack of that strong omnipresent Jamaican funkiness that we find in Appleton 12 rare casks.

Was disappointed, it lost all its character just for smoothness
Prefer 12 oddly enough

Smooth sipping rum. Taste some oak coming though. Nice dark color. The bottle is well presented with a copper cap.

Very good jamaican Rum. The new bottle and the new version seem to be a little bit tastier

I was given a very health sized pour of this and enjoyed it a lot. To date, the rare casks 12 year has been my most dependable well priced bottle of rum. Without having it side by side with this at the time, it was hard for me to differentiate the two at all. So while this is a superb rum in it's own right, it is also probably double he price of the rare cask 12 year... so I would opt for that instead.

Výborný suchý rum. Jemné aroma pomeranče a dubového sudu. Příjemná chuť, která je dlouho cítit v ústech.

This rum jumps out to the nose Immediately! An overwhelming scent of bright fruit and oak. The taste is similar to its scent. A bit dry, finishes quicker than I thought, but still not short. I taste quality; I can pick out the flavors easily, as they are pronounced and good. Slight bite to it. I can tell it's an Appleton by its profile. They did not stray from their process.

Hell of a discovering! A great Jamaican Rhum with its generous esthers, with a warm, delicate and so well balanced taste. And what a long and pleasant long finish!
