Good sipping rum , and great value for your money. Some ”bite” and not overly sweet.

Edit: after a couple more bottles I’m raising the score to 8

Aroma: Vanilla, cinnamon, sugar

Body: Oak, toffee, some vanilla, tobacco

Finish: Dark chocolate, oak, coffee

Conclusion: Nice rum, definitely not on the sweet side of things, very spicy. You can't do anything wrong with this one. It's not spectacular nor very complex but a very good every-day rum.

Kind of bland...not horrible but nothing special either.

To be honest, i love rum, but am no specialist. Ordered this to try, and just love it. Nice smooth taste. Tried a cheap Appleton rum in the past and disliked it. But this is really good, simple as that. Just buy it and enjoy!

Deep, thick, pleasantely woody, dry(ish), properly aged, with pleasant, long finish and you can clearly taste and feel it. Basically everything you need from a rum, and for the price this Appleton Estate can bebarely beaten by anyone else (depends on your area, but I only think of RL Seals to compare for you coin). If you want to know more about AE 12 RB, Ralphy made a review and pretty much nailed it, but you better go and grab a bottle for yourself, take some time, certainly give it a rest and oxidize, and then enjoy it neat (and only neat! for those who mix such rums with anything else there is a special room in hell with giant wobbling dildos). Note: this rum needs to breathe more before tasting, and while the bottle goes down, it becomes better and better and better, and you will definitely feel it, just mark my words lads. Anyway, I highly recommend this for anyone who like scotch. Properly aged, pot still, dry(ish) rum for such price? Exelent and almost perfect.

It reminds me alot of Zaya rum. I got the bottle as a gift, don't think I would purchase again unless I was somewhere that didn't have a large selection.

A sophisticated funk. Great nose with ripe banana and vanilla. A classic Appleton blend.

Un buen ron lindo color , el sabor es aceptable , lo noto muy alcoholico al beberlo y al final , yo lo tomo solo o con un hielo , en el limite de lo recomendable

Et bien voilà un bon rhum, sans sucre ajouté, bien ficelé une attaque franche, un développement harmonieux avec une belle longueur finale. Des arômes fins et des notes caramel léger. Tout ce qu'on demande à un bon rhum, tout ça à moins de 40€. Bravo.

Yeah, u need to like that Jamaican style, i prefer Barbados or Cuba... anyway thats interesting difference. This one is more fruity, i can feel more vanilla, pineapple, a specific flavour. It is worth to taste it.
