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.
Colour and aroma are 10 easily with complex aromas of carmel, vanilla, touch of all spice and strong citrus, but the taste doesn't quite deliver what the nose was sold. A smooth wood flavour dominates the fore and after taste with just a hint of that caramel and vanilla hidden deep in the middle somewhere. For the age and money I had better expectations, by as a rum it is very easily and pleasurably consumed.
Nice aroma with wooden tones. First taste is bit sweet but only few seconds. After is turning in to very very long wooden whisky aftertaste with bitter tannin tones. Best way how to enjoy it is direct comparison with Joy and 21y. Perfect experience, but full bottle very expensive.
Enjoyed a bottle of Appleton Estate 30y with my friend during vacation. Very nice and high end bottle and label design. Golden color. Offputting grass and funk straight to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Nasty burn at the end. This is very expensive Jamaican funk rum.
Viel Fasseinfluss, trockene Eichennoten sind sehr präsent. Die feine vanille-süsse ist dezent eingebunden. Etwas würzig und wenig fruchtig.
Sehr fein, mit langem Abgang.
I tried that during visit in Jamaica. I visited Appletone destillery...Great tour...private guide. At the end you can try collection of their rums. All common till 12 YO. But guide was great guy and saw that I know more about rums that simple tourist. Propose me to try 21 and 30 YO! Hell yeah! Normally that's definietly not my budget...very expensive! Very oak casks for sure. Great ballanced
When I tried this rum I was expecting a similar rum to the 21 year old but found it to be quite different. I will edit this again once I can taste it again.
Upon further review I changed my score to a 9. Much better than I remembered.
Exclusivamente para paladares exigentes en boca suave aterciopelado con notas de cuero vainilla y naranja ahumada
I was blessed to sip away with a friend while in Italy. This is a nice bottle. Expensive. Serious Rum. For a collector or someone who is picky.... like me! Oak casks for sure. Medium finish and i honestly just thought it was a slight miss. But, one of the best rum's in the world!
