Wine Enthusiast 98 points - This gorgeous copper-hued rum seems to shift flavors with every sip, encouraging contemplation. It starts with dry notes of espresso and bittersweet chocolate, then morphs into dark, mouthwatering brown sugar, toffee and clove, before easing into a spiced finish reminiscent of chai tea with a hint of white peach..Kara Newman, August/2014
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - Smashed pineapple and underripe bananas are at once fruity, salty and sweet aromas. It is sultry on the palate with rich tropical fruit, maple and brown sugar, and dark roasted coffee beans that all fill the silken texture..March/2017
Appleton Estate aged rums adhere to Scottish-English law, which states that all the rums used in the blend must be at least the age stated on the bottle-each rum in this case was aged a minimum 21 years. Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums are 100 percent Estate produced and bottled: the entire process of making and aging the rums takes place on site. Appleton 21-Year-Old uses a combination of small batch copper pot and column distillation designed to impart a distinctive character to the Appleton Estate Rum portfolio. The rums are then laid to mature in small oak casks, where they develop rich aromas, color and sweetness before blending.
