Fantastically smooth with a strong sweet aftertaste. My number one choice

SInce I tried Appleton 21 for the first time I founded completely rounded. The right balance between sweet and dry. An honest rum with a long end full of chocolate and Wood. It is priced US 150 in Lima, Peru. In these years I ve tried more pricey rums, including blind tastings. The 21 never step behind. It is a rum you always want to taste again.

Amongst my top 3 rums. Delicious flavour and a treat to sip. Not cheap or easy to find, but worth the splurge for your collection.

This is amazing, with the proper blend of bite and sweetness. I’ve enjoyed Appleton over the years, but my brother and Sister-in-law (she’s Jamaican) introduced me to this rum and it is some of best I’ve had. I’m a great lover of Gosling but Appleton has really grown on me over the years.

Es el mejor ron que he probado. Es simplemente excepcional, exquisito!...una hora después, el sabor del Appleton 21 sigue en boca!

The mere smell of this is enough to send the typical rum lover into a reverie, and then we get to the taste....oh boy!
On the nose, there are layers of oak, fruit brown sugar. The taste is oaky more than anything else. It's neither a sweet not a dry rum, sitting about bang in the middle of the spectrum. You can find both dryness and sweetness in it. There is also fruit and caramel and brown sugar. The aftertaste lingers and lingers - for hours actually. You end up with a very subtle sweet oak flavour as an echo of a wonderful drink. Compared to something like the 8 year old Appleton's it is a miracle. So much natural smoothness (not added sugar), oak, depth and complexity. Recommended.
The price per bottle is £135 and for a single in the pub £8.50 and a double about £15, so this is for special occasions for most of us.

Warm, woody. Smooth, sweet, crisp. Soft nose. A fine rum for sipping.

The Appleton 21 is quite simply the best rum I've had. I prefer it over whichever Zacapa or other premium rum. It is exceptionally smooth and the taste is fantastic.

Rhum très bien équilibré sans prédominance de sucre ou d'alcool.
Nez boisé.
Bouche exeptionnelle avec notes de tabac et de noix.
Finale parfaite et assez sèche.
Un des meilleurs rhum vieux que j'ai bu, un délice sans artifice.
