About Appleton Estate 15 Year Old Black River Casks RumAppleton Estate 15 Year Old Black River Casks Rum is named in honor of the Black River, which is the source of limestone-filtered water that is the basis of Appleton Estate rums. This is a blend of rare pot and column still rums, all hand-selected and aged for at least 15 years in the tropical climate of Jamaica. The result is a beautiful copper color with strikes of honey gold shining through and aromas of toasted almond and hazelnut that develop into flavors of orange peel, vanilla, roasted coffee and molasses on the rich and full-bodied palate. Best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
In 1655, a British expedition led by Sir William Penn and General Robert Venables captured the island of Jamaica from the Spanish. Following the conquest, Frances Dickinson — a soldier in Venables' army — was granted land in exchange for his honorable services. This land would eventually become the foundation of the Appleton Estate.
Since 1749, the Appleton Estate has been crafting some of the world's finest rum from sugarcane grown on it's 11,000 acre estate. Once the sugarcane is harvested, it is fermented with exceptionally soft water that originates on the Estate and is naturally filtered through limestone hills. In addition, the fermentation process uses a proprietary strain of yeast that contributes a unique aroma and flavor profile to the rum. Following fermentation, the rum is distilled through copper pot and column stills.
