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.
That's some good stuff
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.
I was really excited to find a bottle of this on 28 Dec 2016 in a nearby liquor store (Ledger's Liquor in Berkeley California). $365 - I thought this rum had long been sold out.
I wasn't sure whether I'd like this, because I rated the 21-year a "7". But this didn't disappoint. This is the best Appleton I've had to date (maybe one day I'll get to try the 50?). EDIT: I tried the Appleton Joy, and I like that slightly better!
VERY smooth for a 45%abv rum. Like the other Appletons, this smells and tastes of oak, almond, vanilla, molasses, and nutmeg. This also has light notes of orange peel, and vanilla.
It's a little too dry for me to rate higher, but if you like the Appleton rums, this is one of the best.
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!
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.
