Appleton Estate 21-Year rum

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.

Expectations where high...
Smelled great but the taste was flat... closer to a sweeter wisky than a rum
Veeeeery smooth, maybe the smoothest alcohol I have ever had
No notes left in mouth

For me an example that more aging doesn't always mean better rum. I liked the 12-year rare blend much more, for its unique sweetish aroma. In the 21-year old the oak is heavier and more dominant, and apart from that it has a slight varnish-like sting, which I don't find that lovely. In cocktails you get a very strong oaky flavour.

On the nose there is ripe strawberry, honey, some funk, cherry, over-ripe orange and cotton candy (that last note was borrowed from t8ke).

The palate is pepper, oak, burnt sugar and honey.

The finish is fairly long with ginger, coffee, walnut, dark chocolate, almond, oak and a little dry.

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.

This rum was a disappointment for me and ended up serving as base for mixes.

It's lightly sweet, not very smooth, with extremely short tail.

While this works in a mixed drinks, drinking this neat just does not work for me.

I was exited to taste this rum since it was a 21 but i mostly picked up the smell of rubbing alcool. The smell made me less exited especialy for the price i paid for it. This rum is dry and has no added sugar compared to other, but the finish is not great , almost like cheaper rum burning taste.

Many times I've looked eagerly at the Appleton Estate 21 year bottle in the shelves...but one day I bought one. High priced ~100€ I expected a lot and got less. Difficult to distinguish any flavour...wooden, of course. It burns!..... Now, I have emptied the last mug and I take look at the crowd of bottles and the Appleton disappears - unlamented and forgotten.....

Having drank Zacapa 23 for 1/3 the price, I found this extremely disappointing and off-putting. It has a very hot profile that makes the subtlety of the rum flavors all but disappear in the alcohol burn. Perhaps in a bourbon, this would be acceptable, but it really detracted from the experience and left me wondering why in the hell I dropped 120+ on this bottle when I could have bought 3 Zacapa 23...
