Review: Appleton Estate Rum 15 Years Old Black River Casks

Appleton’s newest Jamaican rum expression is a 15 12 months outdated bottling, courtesy of Grasp Blender Joy Spence. The “Black River Casks” in query “pay homage to the Black River in Jamaica’s Nassau Valley, the supply of the limestone-filtered water used to create all Appleton Property rum.” So far as I can inform, there’s nothing distinctive concerning the casks themselves, that are 40-gallon American oak barrels. The juice inside is a typical Appleton mix of pot and column-still rums.

Anybody acquainted with the Appleton home fashion will discover a lot to get pleasure from right here, kicking off with a wealthy nostril that provides ample notes of allspice and cloves, extracted fruit notes, and a restrained hogo character that retains every thing in stability. The palate doubles down on the tiki spice parts, a base of pink fruit and figs discovering kinship with a wholesome cinnamon character. Every little thing feels prefer it’s going nice as much as the end, which comes throughout as a bit skinny for a 15 12 months outdated rum. Nevertheless, a pleasant clove character lingers after the fruit fades out.

It could be too costly for normal use as a mixer, however would definitely excel as one.

86 proof.
