Appleton Estate 21-Year

Jamaica | Aged

Distilled using small-batch copper pot stills uniquely designed for Appleton Estate, this rum is a blend of several rums aged 21 years in American oak barrels. Once blended, the rum is re-casked for two years to marry the flavors.

Appleton Estate 21-year rum is produced in Jamaica on one of the country’s oldest and most renowned sugar estates. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes with a signed aging certificate by master blender Joy Spence.

One of the pricier rums in my ever expanding collection, this one has piqued my interest for some time since I first spied it at a local bev outlet. Worth the price? Absolutely. Very unique taste - not too sweet. Highly recommended.

Just not as complex, long lasting on the palette or luxurious as I'd have hoped from a product aged this well. It just comes over a bit 'thin' and I can't see any justification for the price. Try Flor de Cana 18 instead.

have always been a big fan of Appleton estate.... The 21yr old is definitely worth cash.... Awesome on the nose, thick and full on the palate. Nutty, chocolate, vanilla,

A "lighter" sipping rum, reminiscent of a brandy. hints of citrus, spice & sugars on the nose, offers a room filling bouquet when poured. Classic Jamaican style, more impressive packaging than in my youth. Essential to any distinctive home collection!

This has the authentic Appleton's oak taste. It is a medium body rum, smooth yes, However at this price its too dry for me. I just don't like that authentic Appleton oak taste.

Personally save your money and buy an English Harbour 25. Far better and much more rewarding.

Edit given time this baby will grow on you?

Just received my bottle today ! Produced in 2009, N° 5,318 ;-)
The 12 years was great but I'm waiting to taste the 21. Oak taste and caramel are present and first taste of citrus noze. Great value, a must have in any collection.

Ce rhum est sec et puissant. Comme je les préfère plus « caramélisés » et compte tenu de son prix élevé, je ne lui accorde qu’un 7.
Il faut pourtant lui reconnaitre de belles qualités : belle couleur ambrée, nez subtil, force de caractère, et nombre d’épices se mêlent au bois pour réchauffer la gorge. Belle longueur.

Before I received this as a gift a number of years back, I was mostly a "Rum-Mixer". Receiving this started me along the path towards drinking rum on the rocks and or neat.
Not as smooth as the 30 but also not as oaky; just right.
At $150 bones a pop here in Ontario; I'd say $100 to $120 would be a more reasonable price

i have to say that I was expecting something more for the price. Some more complexity. Still, this is a pretty great rum. A bit of burn at the end. In this price range though there are several other bottles my hand would reach for before this one.

Had a big rum tasting a few months ago and this was in the top 2 favourites. In fact the whole Appleton range was very well favoured.

We destroyed a bottle of V/X in a sitting with a few mates. Lovely with a coke mix. Wish I got more bottles.

But this 21 was just something else. If you are into the really sweet rums, than this probably isn't for you. Go towards Diplomatico if that is your taste.

This finishes a little dryer, but that doesn't take anything away from it. It is a damn fine rum. Lovely oak and vanilla. Very smooth and minimal burn.

Drink it straight up, sit it and just enjoy.
Firmly in my top 5.
