I've had many Appleton rums, and they all have that distinctive Appleton flavor. This one is no exception.
Nice deep golden color. Strong aroma. Smooth, but with a bite at the end. Lingering tastes, that orange hanging on. Slight burn in the throat. It's a stronger and more complex taste than the V/X.
Very nice rum.
I thought this one won't be good when I first taste it but on the second/third thought this one is really good. Recommended to leave it breath for 5-10 minutes before drinking...
Appleton also makes a 12 year old that is not labelled "rare". This is not the same expression as the other 12 year old and despite the label "rare" is inferior in taste.
Zusammen mit dem Flor de Cana 12 ist der Appleton Rare Blend 12 Years mein Favorit. Da ich Rum nur pur trinke hat er alles, was das Trinken eines Rums als Erlebnis gelten lässt.
This rum reviews much better than it tastes...for me. I'm still pretty new to aged rums, so maybe my pallet is just still immature. However, I'll have this bottle in my collection for a while. Maybe I'll have an updated review with a better opinion before this bottle is gone. As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
The aroma is strong: berry jam. Classic dry taste, 43% burns seriously. It gives warmth and strength. Heavy within normal limits. The effect of confidence, calm.
