Bought this with some vouchers i had and for £38 it’s not that great. Quite rough on the palate and with some slight burn. It’s ok but not great.

Jamaican style.
Nose: fermented fruits,
I don‘t like the smell at all.
Palate: not very aromatic,
similar to Stroh-Rum. But pretty well balanced.

My wife and I got married in Montego. I bought this one for the first time at the duty free in the airport there. Absolutely loved it. It's dark and complex with alot of the Jamaican funk. One of those bottles I find my self going back to alot when I'm in the store. It's an all around outstanding sipper.

Great rum for the price. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

This is seriously lovely Rum. I had the Appleton 12 old a year or so ago and was not overly impressed with it. This "Rare Blend" is much more to my liking. A lovely sweet taste, with a real depth of flavour, surprisingly smooth for 43% and a lovely after taste. I am so glad I read the other reviews and purchased this. I think this may become one of my Top Rums, simply delicious.

Jamaican funkiness is there. start strong but gets better after some time.
Might not be one of the best sippers but for mixing is excellent.
At that price range of around US$24 I will definitely buy it again.
Updated now I'm on a 8 instead of 7. Really grew into me.
For some reason the aftertaste to me is similar to Barbancourt, is prolonged and herbal.

Nose: Oak, molasses, tar, baked vanilla, pipe tobacco, canned pineapples. If you give it time to breathe, there’s a little bit of dill and rubber coming through.

Taste: Smells sweeter than it drinks. Rather tannic and oaky but elegant. Vanilla spice, allspice, molasses, a hint of smoke with a subtly sweet baseline of overripe tropical fruit holding it all together.

Finish: Warm and spicy with liquorice root, tobacco and notes of leather polish.

A very balanced rum. Warm Caribbean spice accompanied by a very moderate amount of Jamaican funk and fruity ester notes presented in a very formal and smart oak framing.

Naozaj podarený rum. Už vo vôni cítiť drevitost a ostrejšie náznaky. Chuť je krásne "jamajská", ide o suchsi rum so stredne dlhým dojazdom.

This Appleton is quite nice. Goes down smooth and no hard aftertaste in any area.
