Appleton Estate 30 Year Limited Edition is produced in the Nassau Valley in Jamaica and aged in oak casks for 30 years. Appleton Estate announced in 2008 that it was releasing its first-ever limited edition product in the form of 1,440 hand-numbered bottles of Appleton Estate 30 Year Old Limited Edition Rum.
This rare limited edition 30-year-old rum is first individually aged for eight years, then blended together and aged for an additional 22 years in the highest quality oak barrels. A true collector's item for serious rum aficionados.
Aromas of tropical fruits, vanilla, banana, cocoa, orange peel, prune, toasted nuts, and a subtle sweetness.
On the palate you'll find orange, touches of cinnamon and ginger, vanilla, toasted nuts, and a buttery, long, warm velvety medium finish.
...to rule them all, but definitely one of the nineteen. (THE ONE would be the 50 year old that I doubt I will ever be able to afford, but, hopefully, someone will offer to let me taste it)
This one is officially the most expensive rum I've gotten so far.
I'll be updating this review as soon as it arrives (2 LONG weeks), but if it follows in the tradition of quality/taste vs price ratio I've grown accustomed to from Appleton (so far, the "Exclusive" is my favourite and WAS my most expensive), it will be amazing.
I'll also be updating the Master Blender's Legacy as I will be receiving a bottle of that elusive elixir in the same shipment.
I was able to pick up a couple bottles before they disappeared off LCBO shelves.
It has been a couple of years and I've only drank about half of one bottle(Private Preserve sure comes in handy here).
One of the tastiest rums in my collection; I would give it a 10 but I don't throw out 10's lightly. I think the heavy oak stops me from giving it a perfect score; not that I overly mind an oak taste.
This sure goes well with a Cohiba Siglo v
My wife bought this rum for my 40th Birthday. It did not disappoint. How can I keep the cork tops in better shape. Some cork particles wound up in the rum.
Proud to own a bottle, but not something I crave. Very oak-forward, but not as much as the 50-year, and with more molasses. Well balanced, smooth finish.
"the rum has been overwhelmed by the oak and lessened by the time spent within its dwelling place..."
