Appleton Estate 12-Year rum

Appleton Estate 12-Year

Jamaica | Aged

Appleton Estate 12-Year Rum is a blend of several rums aged between 12 and 18 years in American oak barrels after being distilled using small-batch copper pot stills.

The rum is produced on the Appleton Estate, which sits in the Nassau Valley in Jamaica. The estate’s origins date back as far as 1655 when the English overthrew the Spanish to rule the island and Frances Dickinson, grandfather of the distillery’s founders, received the land as a reward for his role in the overthrow.

Ritter Sport Run raisin on the nose - not surprisingly, as that is made with Jamaican rum. But it does indicate chocolate and raisin notes. In time, vanilla also appears in the smell.
On the palate those notes reoccur, but bolstered by just a bit of that Jamaican funk. Maybe orange peel as well? Actually seems a bit sweet to me for a Jamaican rum, but I quite enjoy it.

Great rum, not too sweetened, lot of flavours and aroma. I think this is how rum is supposed to taste like ;)

Interesting Rum at the price but it tastes alcohool too much for my taste

Deze rum doet bijna aan Whiskey denken. Scherp maar redelijk “smooth” tegelijkertijd.

I don't like it neat as much as I like it for mixing. You can't go wrong with Appleton 12 when a recipe calls for aged jamaican rum. Perfect in a Mai Tai or Planters Punch.

Rich and sweet and lightly fruity feel which goes down very well. Rich gold colour leaves you desiring more.

I compared this back to back with Appleton Signature, and this is a much more refined rum. Notes of caramel and wood on the nose, but not as much funk as other Jamacian rum. These notes carry through to it's taste. It does still have a bit of a bite for a sipping rum.

Very fine. Good balance. Not too sweet. One of the best i've tested this year
