Appleton Estate 21-Year rumAppleton Estate 21 Year Old Rum

We thought that we would hit the ground running with this countdown to Christmas. It is Tiki Tuesday at JJ’s, so why not start with rum! And do we have a rum for you…

Appleton Estate 21 Year Old Rum is as divine as it gets for a 21 year old offering. Distilled using small-batch copper pot stills uniquely designed for Appleton Estate, this rum is a blend of several rums aged 21 years in American oak barrels. Once blended, the rum is re-casked for two years to marry the flavors.

Appleton Estate 21-year rum is produced in Jamaica on one of the country’s oldest and most renowned sugar estates. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes with a signed aging certificate by master blender Joy Spence.

  • Preparation: None needed. Don’t let it get too cold.

  • Cocktail Potential: Not on your life. This is a slow sipper. Enjoy neat.
  • Available for Sale: Yes – JJ’s VIP Price – $119.99/bottle

Tom’s Tasting Note: The remarkable depth of this rum is stunning to me. My other favorite rum pour is Kirk & Sweeney 23 Year Old. Sipping on it now, along side the Appleton, and I am having a bit of a euphoric experience. The tropical, mixed with the dark, banana bread and cinnamon toast combination is mind blowing. You all know me, I love bourbon. But this stuff is as good as it gets.
