Appleton Reserve 20YO bottled in the 1970s
Attention collector. This is the only time that the Jamaican Appleton distillery will release a 20 year old (the following range will aim to offer an age count of 21 years old).
The rum is offered in an imposing ceramic jar (75cl) of the most beautiful effect, marketed in the 1970s.
According to the inscriptions on the carafe, Appleton/J&Nephew were already ahead of their time with a well-placed "aged in 12 tropical years". Note that there is a 12 year old in the same type of container.
