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.

This is good solid pot blend rum that combined with the funk gives it that Jamaican classiness ... You can taste lovely orange peel and smooth coffee ... Good solid 8 year rum

Thought I would try the new Appleton Estate Reserve 8 Yr & Appleton Rare Casks 12 yr Rums recently released from Jamaica. I was really surprised with the younger rum which I find even better than the Older version of the Appleton Rare Blend 12 yr version and Its quality is definitely worthy of being drank neat. The new version of the 12 year (Rare Casks) is also much better than the older version and in my opinion both dessrve a “9” rating.

Smooth and tasty. I really enjoy it neat. At first sip it is lush, full of flavour and fulfilling. The aftertaste is a little flat though.

Best of Appleton rum I tasted ... yet. Better than the V/X

Initial hit is a bit WTF but then it mellows out and sweetens up into a long lingering smooth mouthful of tasty rum. 7.5 but at £26 a bottle on offer in Waitrose, I'm giving and 8 and going back for more!

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.

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.
