Aged rums are the pinnacle of rum production. What are the best aged rums? These sophisticated rums are designed to be enjoyed without being mixed in a cocktail, although some rum enthusiasts use them as premium ingredients in libations. The best premium rums are served as one might serve a fine single malt scotch or cognac, neat in a fine snifter or on the rocks. The labels often contain a statement of the age.

Apple Estate 50 Rare Limited Edition
- This ultra-rare 50 year old Jamaica Independence Reserve was released in 2012 for Jamaica's 50th Independence celebration, featuring rums that began aging in 1962 under the tutelage of several generations of master blenders. Rich aromas of dark honeyed whiskey barrel and toasty oak lead to dark dried fruit and orange peel, blackcurrant and a hint of green apple. On the palate, a fleeting moment of thick caramel creaminess dissolves rapidly into rich warm brown butter, moss and smoky peat, above leather and vegetal notes. The wood just keeps on talking in the end with an extremely warm aftertaste and long lingering barrel notes. Lucky if you ever get to taste this one. http://www.appletonestate.com/
