Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Details:

      Appleton Estate 21 Year Old is a ‘minimum age’ rum as indicated by the number 21 displayed on the bottle. The rum is aged in Number One Select American Oak barrels.

    • The Blend:

      Select aged rums, all matured for at least 21 years.

    • Appearance:

      A coppery, tawny hue, with excellent purity.

    • Bouquet:

      Powerful, yet with delicate citrus, spice, and woody notes. You’ll also discover mellow orange peel, deep vanilla, rich nutmeg, warm coffee, and cocoa notes.

    • Finish:

      The finish is long and dry, with a brown sugar sweetness that does not claw at the palate.

    • How to enjoy:

      Savour it neat in a snifter.

    I’ve always been more of a scotch drinking man, but I received this bottle as a gift and I’m loving it. Very complex flavor profile with no bite and a clean, warm finish. This is now in my rotation of “me time” spirits.

    This is a wonderful and full of taste hints of coffee orange nutmeg , I suggest this to be "drunk" sipted with nothing added.

    Such a smooth blend, got into rums whilst working in a rum bar in my late teens and had this brought for me as a gift for my 21st birthday, never been so protective over alcohol, beautiful!

    I'm a big fan of the 12yo and I well remember the (now deleted?) 14yo expression. WE bought a bottle of the 21yo last week in Jamaica, in its new luxury decanter bottling, as a reward for reaching our 21st wedding anniversary. It'll be opened and shared with friends at my forthcoming 60th birthday celebration

  • Steve 9 June 2011

    I was given a bottle of the 21yr old after winning a cocktail comp a few years back - I still haven't opened it! I love my rum and know how good it is - but despite graduating and turning 21 a few years back, none of those events seemed important enough to justify cracking it open!

    Was given the blue label as a wedding gift. stupid me mixed it with chasers until i discovered the price and more over the smoothness of this supreme rum. Simply evaparotes in your mouth leaving long lasting aromas. amazing.Even the appleton 'special', the cheapest in the brand is a superb rum.well done Appleton for making my 3yrs in Jamaica purely bliss.

  • Max 4 June 2010

    Very very smooth, but I cannot find it anywhere in Jamaica again. It's no longer in stock, I'm sad!

    I've been drinking Appleton rum for years now (usually the VX). I splurged today and purchased a bottle of this amazing 21 year old rum!! I usually drink Appleton rum with Diet Pepsi but never in a million years would I mix this gorgeous "blue labled" version of simply the best rum distillery in the world!

  • Anonymous 6 December 2008

    Fantastic Rum just dont tell eddie at the factory it taste's great with coke!

  • Eddie 24 November 2008

    I don't think it gets any better than this. Pity it's so expensive. I found it in Ochos Rios and enjoyed a glass by the bay each evening as the sun went down. I also found it at the airport duty free a LOT cheaper.

    I traveled to Jamaica and purchased this rum while there. It's sooooo smooth.
