Appleton Hearts Collection, the Re-Evolution Continues

4 aprile 2024

Appleton Hearts Collection is the now legendary limited-edition range of 100% pot still single marks selected by Luca Gargano and Joy Spence, Appleton Estate's historic Master Blender. An absolute first worldwide, since 2020 - the year the first releases came out - it has become a real cult object among collectors around the world. The rums that make up this exclusive series are the first 100% pot still vintage single mark rums ever released by Appleton Estate. The 100% pot still distillation discards the heads and tails and only keeps the heart of the spirit.

We already talked about it here, on the occasion of the 1993 and 2002 releases and here, in an interview with Joy Spence.

After the 1984, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1999, 2002 and 2003 vintages, it's now time for the 1998 release - an exceptional blend of 19 barrels, including #417649 and #422371 to #422388 chosen from among the almost two hundred thousand produced by the Jamaican distillery, distilled in a Forsyths still and bottled at 63° ABV after aging 25 years in a tropical climate. The total congeners content is 995 gr/hlpa.

The collection becomes increasingly complete and the pot still re-evolution continues.
