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.
Ce rhum Jamaïcain est fidèle à la tradition des rhums de "tradition anglaise", finement boisé, avec des notes de vanille, de fruits secs, de tabac et d'écorce d'orange, le nez est extrêmement agréable et en bouche c'est très gourmand avec la sucrosité d'un El dorado mais dans une moindre mesure. Parfaitement équilibré, on y revient jusqu'à plus soif !
The Appleton 12-year is a good sipping rum, but could use some more filtering. It has very alcoholic aromas, and while there is some good oakeyness in the flavour it is also very sharp and raw, which is accentuated by the almost complete lack of sweetness. A bit more sugar would actually make this a much better rum!
Lon time lover of this one can't count how often I've had it, sweet but not too sweet, great neat or with a mixer (for me either a good spicy ginger beer pref. or coke/pepsi)
The yard stick.
I’m new to the tasting game.. that being said, I’ve tasted a few, and this one is good. There is surely a hit of orange.. I think vanilla is more prominent. Its about as smooth as any, but pretty flavorful.
C'est un rum classique très très sec il n'y a aucun sucre aucune rondeure en bouche
La couleur est particulièrement magnifique brun très cuivré
Le goût est boisé et fumé avec des pointes végétale sa rappel un peu un scotch l alcool est bien présent
Aux nez sa sent le fût de chêne la fumée de bois et plus subtil un mélange de terre et de végétaux
Les amateurs de rum classique y trouveront sûrment leur compte il pourrait même plaire a certains amateur de scotch
Had the chance to visit the Appleton’s distillery and sample several of their offerings. I enjoyed the 12, very smooth, and yet the flavor profile is closer to your typical mixer. I enjoyed it, but wouldn’t wait in line for seconds.
I didn't detect much spice in it, just a lot of dryness.
I also don't understand why a 12 year old rum is packed without a proper cork.
This bottle gut that cheap plastic twist cap.
Not my cup of tea.. erm.. rum.
Appleton has great brand recognition and their mid range rums are dependable. Unfortunately, the 12 year is a real let down. Decent flavor, but harsh with too little to finish. Better to go with Doorlys 12 year or even Bacardi 8.
I am still not sure what I think of Appleton Estate rums. Have had most of them in Jamaica but couldn't quite get my finger on it. Definitely worth trying but I need more convincing
Un buen ron para beberse derecho o en las Rocas. Sabor complejo, se pueden reconocer sabores a frutas maduras como platano, poco amaderado.
This product is ok, but it’s not quite what I was expecting. It’s very warm on the finish and a little dry. This is probably due to the strict regulations in Jamaica when it comes to rum.
As the de rigeur standard mixer, AE Reserve is a great starter rum. This is that, but better... we love this bottle to keep around for sipping, mixing, sharing, and just about anything. Incredible taste for the price. What more needs to be said? Super happy with this rum.
Günstiger Einstieg in die Jamaika Rums. Noch keine Geschmacksexplosion, aber definitv ein Rum zum pur genießen.
Leicht beißende Nase, viel Würze im Geschmack, leicht süßlicher Nachgeschmack.
Für den Preis ein toller Rum.
12 ans étant le rhum le plus jeune. L'assemblage contient des rhums allant jusque 18 ans.
Assez gras mais de belle teneur quand même.
A découvrir pour les néophytes des rums anglais comme moi !
