This rum has a dark golden color, though lighter than I had expected for a collection of rums that had been in oak barrels for 21 years or more. The legs are thick ? they don?t move on the glass at all. A faint green ring can be detected in the right light, indicating its long existence in those barrels. A truly fantastic long-aged rum from Jamaica"s most respected producer, Appleton 21yo has everything you could ask for in a top-end rum - real richness and depth of flavour and a fabulously smooth texture and mouthfeel. Just brilliant.
