Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
So, it's my go to rum after a good day it's like a topping of delight on a fun day, magic.
A go to rum for me. Adds more smooth taste than the V/X, and has the great Appletons taste.
Smooth, great sipping Rum.
Great Jamaican quality. Not so good as 12 years old, but still good.
Dark Colour, very strong spicy taste, very strong aroma. A Rum that demands your attention !!
It beats all the "Anejos" on the market to death... I like this one with coke but it can be sipped neat, on the rocks, or in a mixed drink. The aged flavors push right through and the smell is hypnotizing.
Best of Appleton rum I tasted ... yet. Better than the V/X
using it for "good" friends instead of the VX in mixes
This is a very good rum with excellent flavor and smoothness. I prefer it on the rocks with a twist of lime.
Once again Appleton Estate never fails great rum as always
A litte bit smoother than the V/X but still with that Jamaican feel.
Bon goût de sucre chaud, à boire sec mais doit être excellent en Cuba libre.
This taste more like rum than most any rum, very bold. A bit harsh on it's own.
Not a great sipping rum, but Appleton Estates 8 year old is one of the best readily available mixing rums at it's price point. Mixed with cola or into a Cuba Libre this is a great rum.
Nice little rum, quiet enjoyable taste and will always be on my shelf
If you are looking for a strong rum, this it a good option. It is dry and it makes you feel the alcohol which is made of. You can use as a sipping rum if you are looking for harsh sensation. Worth to try!
un gout boise et epice mais acroche un peu en bouche
Not my favourite to start, but getting there. Fairly smooth, and for me easy to enjoy. Although on first sip I found it bit bland, but that's changing.
Nez plutôt fin.
Bouche initiale forte en alcool. Finale boisée plutôt agréable !
Peu de sucre et de vanille
The 8 Year reserve used to be an affordable choice of quality, an entry level step into the realm of more serious sipping rums. it also used to be my first Appleton experience and i found it to be quite interesting and unique, from the strange aroma which is different to other rums, to the pleasant and not harsh sipping experience. sadly until it really grew up on me it was discontinued and replaced by different and non age stated blend.
Not my kind of sipper..but a well rounded rum and good mixer.
I thought this was a very good rum for the price. I like the 12 and this was not far off it. Nice floral flavours with a bit of a kick. Its fine neat but also an excellent mixer.
A typical Jamaican Rum.
Good with pepsi
