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.

I think more for tasting neat, than mixing, though mixes extraordinarily well. The regular Appleton is good, yet a working man's version of the 12 year, which is a compliment to both.

Amazing with ginger beer. Not quite as good as a Ron Solera 23 but close.

Hace poco probé la versión mejorada, el rare blend. Pero sigue siendo un excelente referente del ron jamaicano. Seco, fuerte, nada dulce y con mucha personalidad. Nada para principiantes, pero en realidad junto a su hermano el mejor ron en cuestión calidad-precio

It pours light brown in colour. Aroma is of demerara sugar. Flavour is also of demerara sugar. Nice with cola and ginger beer.

Taste 6/10. Dont like the taste profile... not bad objectively but very different taste than most popular rums. 0 sweetnes, some whisky character, little burn & thats all.

This is a good Rum, not complex by any means though, molasses and some sweetness, but a bit "mono" tasting compared to what else is available in this price range. I do feel however, it is a good honest Rum.

Taste is approaching the 21y old, but without the coconut and the after taste is not as complex. A bit of cocoa powder sedimentation during after taste, which I like.

Overall a very solid rum. I personally can see this making exquisitely unique high end cocktails where the rum is the star! As a neat or sipping rum I feel the 43% alcohol comes off a bit harsh and detracts from the character that I know this rum has.

powerful aroma- with a lot of dried fruits and vanilla.
