ABV: 45%
First launched in 2009, now is a good time to indulge in this Jamaican legend. It's only the second of its kind to be released in the distillery's 269 year history. Including liquid aged for more than 50 years, Master distiller, Joy Spence describes it as "one of my favourite rums" - a significant statement for an industry veteran of over twenty years. With a complex profile of vanilla, toasted oak, ginger, cinnamon and a smooth, long, spiced honey finish, it's guaranteed to impress serious rum aficionados. The age statement alone is staggering. Given the tropical maturation, Appleton started with 26 barrels and ended with just 13 due to the extreme evaporation rate. From those thirteen barrels just 4000 bottles have been released globally. Nothing has been added to the rum. Beautifully presented with a heavy 'decanter' style bottle and decorated stopper, we have less than a handful on offer.

...On the nose there is orchard blossoms, golden apples stewed with maple, cinnamon, ginger, cedar and candied orange zest delicately buttressed by vanilla. The palate is much lighter than you may expect from the nosing, but the flavors are intricate iterations of the aromas— presented with flowers, oxidized fruit, dark wood tones, voluptuous baking spices and creamy caramel/vanilla. The finish clings, showing molasses, maple, soft spice and sumptuous oak nuances. 96 points - distiller.com

Note: due to the long ageing, the liquid may contain some naturally occurring particles. This is not a production fault.
