Appletons have that strange distinctive odour. Hard to smell anything beside that. The taste is alcoholic fiery, dry but sweet anyhow. There is also afterburn, but decent one. For 8 yrs, it should be better rounded and mellowed, more refined. 8 years or not, this one has qualities to be rather mixer than sipper. Altrough I very liek 12yrs and V/X Appletons, this one is little bit of dissapoitment for sipping. So better mix it up or mellow it down with ice/water.

Just not quite good enough for sipping in my humble opinion.

This is my second bottle, first was Rare Blend 12, and I like it a lot. Maybe not that exotic or mature taste, but it is smooth, delicious and easy to drink.
In side by side comparison with Diplomatico Kettle Batch I prefer Appleton.

This taste more like rum than most any rum, very bold. A bit harsh on it's own.

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.
