Appleton 15 yr

This is my fourth try with Appleton Rum, having previously tried and very much disliked Appleton Signature Blend, Appleton VX and Appleton 12 yr old rums. Appleton 15 yr Rum is currently only available in Canada and I decided to give Appleton rum one more shot. Glad I did as I really enjoy this rum which, in my opinion, has a completely different taste than the previous three. This rum is not as “funky” as the other ones and very dry, which is how I like my rum. I had previously rated the previous three Appleton a “3” but this one is certainly much better and deserve a higher rating.

My first positive experience with an Appleton offering. Will now consider spending more to acquire an older version from the Appleton distillery,

Well done!

It is in different league than 12yo Rare blend - not that chunky and not that "super tasty".
It is in different league than 21yo - no smoke no oak.
This is exceptional, unique* drink which will be hard to skip. Dry, a bit spicy, not very complex, but pleasant taste which refers to the Appleton class.
Cons: a bit strange, aggressive on the nose.
*Reminds me MG Master Select )

I like it, I couldn't believe the difference from the regular rum, well done.

I expected it would be a bit more deep and smooth. Some worked well, and other didn’t.
In overall I think the nose is okay. I sense the Appleton notes, but the flavor is not as deep and smooth as expected. Good way to start if you want to challenge your sweet rum tooth.

Typical Appleton style. Rich and complex. Overly bitter, too much to ignore (higher alcohols?).

Well-aged but flawed.

- vůně nasládlá, jemné mléčné karamelky, závan dřevitosti, vanilka, mix bylinek
- chuť kopíruje vůní, ty mléčné karamelky jsou velmi příjemné, o proti AE 12 už sladší, méně Jamajská, více do AE 21

Classic Jamaican sipper yes, but does it bring much more to the table than the Appleton 12???

Sugar estimated at 5 GPL. This rum has the traditional Appleton profile of oak and spice with some sweetness factor. However, just as Joola69 pointed out it has a strong alcohol aroma and is very dry. It starts out like other Appleton Rums but falls off quickly as it has a long afterburn from the alcohol factor. The "burn" is controlled and balanced but I found the rum is a bit harsh.
I didn't like it straight up as it is quite harsh, but it will make an okay but expensive mixer. Overall I would buy the Appleton 12 as has more flavour and is smoother.

Definitely Appleton flavor. Enjoyed the rum flavor, a little bit of a bite. Not as smooth as I normally like.
