So, it's my go to rum after a good day it's like a topping of delight on a fun day, magic.

Overall not a bad rum. This one I find balances right on the fence of a “with cola” and “straight up” although it boasts more flavor than your original Appleton’s, I find it ever so lacking the next level of flavor and smoothness I need to sip a rum straight up. Then again, straight from Jamaica as a gift, only it’s empty bottle remains...

Le nez de ce rhum est très léger. Au gout, également. On note néanmoins la présence de vanille et un gout boisé. Malheureusement, les arômes sont trop effacés et le coté sec prend un peu trop le pas. Le final est néanmoins agréable.

Il s'agit d'un rhum d'entrée de gamme correct mais qui n'est pas au niveau de ses concurrents (Barcelo, Diplomatico reserva).

Taste vanilla and wood but taste too slight. Nice finish however.

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.

I had a few drinks of Appleton Estate 8y while vacationing in Mexico. Bottle and label design are like any other Appleton Estate franchise. Very strong alcohol to the nose and palate if neat sipped. Mixes rather well with your favorite soda drinks.

Jamaican funk, a touch hot, but ok as a sipper.
shines is cocktails.

For an aged rum it doesn't show it, drinkable in a pinch but outclassed by lesser offerings which is a sacrilege and offense on the consumer.

Un ron que decepciona al parecer mas joven de lo que es.
