Appleton Estate 21 Year Old Reviews


Absolute treat to drink and smell. no need to be mixed and 43% is a nice touch. Tastes of leathery raisins (in a good way), whilst it is an exceptional rum and a real treat to have experienced I would personally get the Appleton 12yo at £35 o bottle.

Very nice

This is a nice smooth drink the only problem it’s too easy to drink a bottle :(

GREED!!! Etc.,etc.

Why only 43% Alc/Vol? Has the potential to be the best rum in the world at 21 years old which in this day and age with a massive surge in popularity and willingness to spend
mega, then lets independent bottlers cut it's lunch!

A very special rum for special occasiins

A superb rum with notes of cinnamon and ginger best served right out the bottle at room temperature

My go to rum when I have had a bad day at work. Pour 2 fingers in a tulip glass, add 1 ice cube and 3 whiskey stones, let it sit for about 5 minutes, then kick back and let my stress melt away. So impressed with this rum I matched the color of the box it comes in and painted my bar shelves the blue color (in an egg wash effect) and painted the walls the gold color of the label.

it's changed my mind but only a bit 🥃🇬🇧🇯🇲

I just wanna go back on what I said about this not having an "aged" flavour. In fact having sat down and had two glasses of this, well let's just say it's growing on me but you still get that flavour that you get only from young rums and I know it has "rums" aged up to 21 years, but it's still very prevalent in this tasty wee dram but it doesn't go out of control like a young dark rum does, its controlled by the aged molasses flavour and this finish is like that Duracell advert "it just keeps going on and on and on "- simply fantastic but I still go by what I said about "Ron Zacapa" it's the best rum I've ever tasted. All of the Ron Zacapa rums are delectable and I stand by what I've said . If you like rum or even if you don't buy a sample of Ron Zacapa and then come back here and tell us what you think ?

There is better for less.

Defiantly a molasses rum but I'd expect nothing else from Jamaca. Over all it's a nice rum but there are better rums out there for less that taste very similar like Plantation XO from Barbados - this is almost the same rum in terms of taste and texture and it costs £46.45 compared to this but for the similar price range as this Ron Zacapa comes in @ around £40.00 and the XO is around ££80.00 ish and by the way Ron Zacapa is a 23 year old at £40.00 and you can taste the age unlike this one and it's the best tasting rum money can buy. Far more complex than this far more flavours than this and has taken on good flavour from the PX casks and American oak, you can taste that it has age and you have far more value for your money. Like the reviewer below I'm still glad I bought this tho because it's still a nice rum but I'm a bit disappointed as I could of just purchased the Plantation XO for £46.45.

Glory Glory Hallelujah

Beautiful aged drop. Appleton have pulled out all the stops with this one. Waited a long while to get was worth the wait.

That finish is spot on..

Just picked up a bottle of this last night based on the information here and thought I'd post my impressions. I compared this rum to 3 others after picking it up; the Bacardi Reserva Limited, the Ron Zacapa 23 Solera, and the Ron Barcelo Imperial. I'm not gonna go into the nitty gritty between them all here, but the Appleton definitely stood as a unique flavor all its own. Nothing came close to that long lasting finish - you get all 21+ years. It's overall not my favorite to be really honest, but I'm glad I have it in my collection and don't regret the purchase. The bottle design, packaging and authenticity card are also nice touches if you're into all that.

Absolutely superb

Quite possibly the best of the older aged rums, the Appleton 21 is like the 12 Year Old but more complex in texture and flavor and maybe a bit gentler due to its age. Really quite wonderful! I bought 3 bottles and nearly down to my last one. It is thick it is sweet with all the rum flavors you enjoy times three. It's eminently drinkable and you can't just have one dram you'll want a few. Get a bottle you will never regret it and you'll want more!
