WINE & SPIRITS
APPLETON ESTATE 21 YEAR RUM (750 ML)
Appleton 21 year old displays itself as a deep amber brown, as you’d expect from so much time in oak. The aroma is complex, full of Jamaican molasses and copper pot still smells. Appleton’s 21 year old positively exudes Copper pot still goodness - one sniff is evokes sensations of licking the swan's neck of one of the distillery's impressive copper pot stills. Of course, there's also aromas of caramel, oak, orange peel, coffee bean and hazelnuts on the nose. More subtle are the scents of cocoa and paraffin, yet there is no alcohol attack to the nose. A sleek body delivers wonderfully harmonious flavors beginning with coppery-oaken vanilla, crisp caramel and butterscotch, dried citrus and less pronounced walnut. Appleton 21 year old finishes warm, medium-long, and clean, with an added splash of spice – altogether complementing the rich tasting experience.
