How does this rum taste?

The "Hearts Collection - 1995" from Appleton Estate, bottled by Velier, is a robust Jamaican rum with a harmonious blend of exotic fruits, dark chocolate, and woody notes. At 63% ABV, its complexity and warm, long finish impress connoisseurs. Limited to 3000 bottles, this 25-year cask strength marvel balances intensity with elegance, offering a surprisingly creamy texture that defies its high proof. It's a unique find that evolves over time, revealing layers of spice, menthol, and a subtle smoky finish, reminiscent of a fine cigar. This rum stands out for its surprising Guyana-like spirit and less funk than typical of Jamaicans, tilting towards a mature, refined character that diverges from Appleton's usual smoothness.

“I have finally found the perfect chocolate to reset and enhance my palate when tasting. I can recommend the 70% chocolate from Peru made from the Chuncho Bean (Trinidad). This bottle is also a really nice one and there is no doubt that it's an Appleton Estate in the nose nor the palate. A great rum probably already sold out. It was gone here in Denmark the day it was released and the bottle prices have already skyrocketed.”

“Deutlich besser wie der 99er. Schöne Noten von dunkler Schokolade, Toffee, Limette, Grapefruitmarmelade, Kaffee, nicht zu viel Holz und etwas Minze und Klebstoff. Erinnert irgendwie an Jaffa cakes auf Steroiden. Nur eher mit Limette/Grapefruit statt Orange. Nur auch hier wieder etwas alkoholisch und adstringierend, sonst wäre die Bewertung höher!”
