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.

Bought it because it seemed good value, based on its ratings and because it was measured on different websites for added sugar and it had none. Tastes good but not great. Wouldn't use it as a gift or when I have guests but perfect for a glass after a long day.

Я не понимаю откуда такой рейтинг у этого рома. Возможно мне попался контрафакт. Но это хуже чем какой-то дешманский бакарди

Solid rum and great value at 25 EUR in Germany
Sure it is oaky - bourbon barrel - heavy on vanilla and caramel
But you've gotta lov it

Good rum, typical Jamaican
Just a bit better quality. Not bad for sipping. Mild cigar matches this one well.

This rum is incredibly smooth for the price range. Fantastic flavor, a little less nuance that Real McCoy 12 year, but significantly less bite. This can be a sipper which is rare for a $40 dollar rum, but isn't as full as something more expensive.

Great flavor and finish. Crack the bottle and you are back on the beach.

Every time I enjoy this, I can hear Joy Spence with that wonderful patois accent saying, "No added shu-gah!".

What a delightful creation. One of the few I enjoy neat.

Nose - Apricot, Oak, Molasses
Palate - Spice, Vanilla, Caramel, Orange

Long, outstanding finish.

This is a standard of excellence, top to bottom.

With the manipulations of some other heralded brands, I understand why a master artist like Ms. Spence could be vexed at uninformed comparisons.
