Default Appleton 50

Has anyone gotten a bottloe of this rum. at over 5K/bottle, I am hesitant. it would be the last bottle that I have in the appleton collection which includes:

30 (3 bottles)
20 yr signature marque
12 yr crock
20 yr crock
a couple of ancient bottles of appleton (wray and nephew) dagger, and a dagger punch
the white, the overproof, and all four Edwin Charlies

I know that there are other ones that are out there and are unique, but back to my original question:
Has anyone gotten a bottle of the 50 year? Also, if you know of any other bottle I have to have in the collection, let me know.

Heya Ellis,

Chip AKA The Rum howler has a review up for it. I don't think he got a full bottle though....

And from your list I see that you seem to be missing the Appleton Estate Exclusive. I recently secured my second bottle of said blend during a visit to the Appleton distillery this past December.

Sorry about the quality of the pic, it was a quick snap with my phone.
