A Doctor friend of ours is in Jamaica (okay was as he is heading to The Bahamas). The minute Rumelier posted that A30 was available, I got on the horn, Ellis34 and sought to find who the hell in knew that was in Jamaica. To my great surprise and luck Dr. Santiago was in Kingston. In short he has been requested to secure a bottle of this pure gold. Ellis34 like you I too have every other Appleton and you may recall, I was able to sample a rare bottle produced by Joy Spence one of only 30 bottles produced.

If I find anyone else going down, I will include an order for you. Rumelier, I've also spoken to the folks and Butler & Sands about getting me a bottle via their contact.

On the cannister:-

"This limited edition 30 year old rum from the world famous Appleton Estate in Jamaica is a very rare blend made up of several marks of rum that were hand selected by our master blender more than 30 years ago. These marks were individually aged for 8 years then blended together and placed again in oak barrels where they rested for a further 22 years. The result of this unique ageing process is a rum that is unmatched in taste and character and smoothness. It is the ultimate journey in discovery of the finest rum in the world."

Inside the envelope:-

Master Blender's Tasting Notes
Appearance

Bright and shiny golden colour with a coppery hue
Nose
Baked pear, maple, spice and orange peal notes with hints of ginger and vanilla.
Palate
The subtle oak character is wrapped with delicate spices and vanilla.
Finish
Its clean finish lingers with molasses.

Rumelier I love the info you are giving us, keep it coming even if it makes me cry. I've been looking for ways to get rid of my bottom shelf rum and crying into it as good as any. If you get some time give us YOUR tasting notes to compare to the notes from appletons. I haven't seen anything that you like that I haven't so don't be bashful.

Seems like a fair enough price.

Ron, next time I take a wee dram I will take my time and give you some of my thoughts. I will have to take it slowly incase I don't find another bottle anytime soon. I remember it being completey different from most of the other Appleton Estates, great aromas and aftertaste, very, very smooth. It opened up amazingly with a splash of water, as I would normally drink my rum, the aromas just slapped you right in the face when you got close to the glass.

Thank you Rumelier, it is appreciated immensely. I have to learn to put a splash of water in with the rum, I have the feeling that I am missing a lot of nuances by not. I know that Forest has mentioned it before along with others but I think I'll wait to hang around some of you guys to see how much water to add. I wouldn't want to kill the rum taste after all, that would be sinful!

Hasn't Ed mentioned that tasting at 72 proof or so can facilitate differentiating a spirit's range of tastes and scents? We often try spirits undiluted and then add a splash of a size appropriate to the strength of the current example. If the spirit tastes particularly fine neat, we might neglect to add water. If too much water is added and the taste recedes instead of opening up, just add a bit more of the spirit until it seems right.

lololol, alright, I am an idiot. I never thought about adding more rum to right the balance, thank you Michael. I'll have to experiment this weekend.
