Lots of burnt sugar and vanilla on the nose. The flavor is dry with lots of charred oak and a bitter aftertaste. Very unique taste and unlike any other rum I’ve tasted.

Guindones y frutos maduros en nariz, un ron bastante agradable, lleno de sabor aunque esté no persiste mucho en boca

A gift from a friend. Called "Rare Casks" here rather than "Rare Blend" I assume the same product. Typical Appleton flavours but smoother, lingers longer. Better than average sipper with just a bit of ice.

This is quite nice, plenty of taste, excellent in a MaiTai or sipping on the rocks.

Schönes Rotgold. Geradezu ölig im Glas.
Mächtige und wuchtige, sehr süßliche Fruchtaromen in der Nase (ähnlich Austrian Empire Reserva 1863). Alkohol dringt durch.
Staubtrocken und feinwürzig, elegant am Gaumen. Sehr überraschend, fast wie ein anderer Rum, sodass man sich beim ersten Schluck erst anpassen muss.
Guter Körper. Rund. Langer Abgang.
Guter Sipper, der sein Geld absolut wert ist.

An interesting rum with hints of brandy, but a little too harsh for me to enjoyably drink over ice, and to expensive too mix.

One of my favourites! Best bang for your buck and a solid go to rum choice for all rum lovers !

The smell is nice, but the taste not so great. It's bitter at the beginning and the finish is like a plastic aroma. It works only with coke for me. I recommend El Dorado 15. A little bit more expensive, but it's very tasteful.

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.

Delightful sipper - currently my favourite with rich molasses and complex sweetness. Perfect night cap when my wife is drinking Scotch
