Easily consumable in a bind
Appleton Estate is the standard in which I compare most mid-range Amber Rums. Excellent it is not, however, it’s flavours pair well in simple or complex cocktails, as well as mixed drinks, and it serves to divide what a good or bad rum should be. I stock it as my base stock Amber Rum in my home bar and always recommend it above Bacardi for a cheaper priced rum.
It's very boring and quite rough.
I wouldn't say it was really bad, but it also hasn't got a whole lot i can say that's good about it.
It just lacks flavour. Not really for sipping which even basic Havana Club 7 year is good for.
It's ok in orange juice cocktails or just in coke.
Also appeared to give me a worse hangover than other rums of the same price.
For the price, it’s a decent choice. With a biting and funky taste, even if that rum is strong and not easy to drink, it’s somehow enjoyable and a classic. No sweet added.
As a Appleton fan, I like all bottles over 21y. This one was a big disappointment.
Weak aroma and taste.
