Default Appleton 30

Thought i would throw this here... a good friend gave me a snort when he picked up his bottle... here are some thoughts...

On the nose there is orchard blossoms, golden apples stewed with maple, cinnamon, ginger, cedar and candied orange zest delicately buttressed by vanilla.
The palate is much lighter than i expected from the nosing, but the flavors are intricate iterations of the aroma—presented with flowers, oxidized fruit, dark wood tones, voluptuous baking spices and creamy caramel/vanilla.
The finish clings, showing molasses, maple, soft spice and sumptuous oak nuances.
This is exquisite rum that displays amazing balance, an absolute joy to drink.

Forrest, that customer is a lucky dog!!! Hope you manage to secure a bottle of this nectar yourself. I think I will have a little nip tonite to celebrate my rum brother's acquisition. It is so amazing that two of the world's most respected rum experts live in the same town!!!????

I have a few leads on getting me a 30 year bottle, so hopefully I can get my hands on one for my upcoming retirement from the Marine Corps.

So everyone out there please say a quick prayer......I really do want a bottle of this...and he who gets it for me will get the second sip after me.
