Appleton Estate Reserve Rum is a blend of 20 different rums of varying ages, the youngest of which is aged eight years in used Jack Daniels whiskey barrels.
This rum is produced in the Nassau Valley of Jamaica on the Appleton Estate from locally sourced sugar cane and limestone-filtered water.
Tasty, but not quite great
Appleton's Estate Reserve is a solid dependable Jamaican rum good for mixing or just drinking straight. If someone just handed me a shot (or more) I certainly wouldn't say no. Lots of good flavor and character. Not fancy or exotic, but sometimes something you can count on is all you need. Good choice for a standard table rum.
In my 20’s I drank the Appleton Signature (cheapest Appleton) so this is reminiscent of those days but with a bit more flavour and a bit less burn.
Very nice with soda water.
Side note, I popped over to read the reviews of the Appleton Signature and read a bunch of people complaining that it’s not a good sipping rum! What are they thinking? It’s the cheapest offering, why do they think it’s a sipping rum? Too funny.
I use this the Signature and Reserve as an entry level tasting to hogo flavors. While this is definitely hogo in training wheels, it's delicious as a mixer or even on ice.
Appleton for me under excites and find it hard to distinguish a premium from the regular blends and not sure if they have an ultra available for the masses
Not my favorite and definitely not a sipping Rum. It’s nose is much better than the taste and you can definitely taste the alcohol. Mild Vanilla and caramel flavors, goes decent in your favorite Coke like Soda.
