Appleton Estate Special Gold

Jamaica | Gold

Appleton Estate Special Gold rum is made using column and pot stills. The rum is then aged in Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels and hand-blended.

The Special Gold Appleton brand is said to have been first blended during World War II as a substitute for whiskey, which was at the time difficult to find.

Very nice spiced rum, fragrant, smooth, mostly for cocktails or drinks, but it can also be enjoyable on the rocks. The price was nice before (8 EUR), but nowadays the price tag is just unreasonably high. I rather keep my 14 EUR for other bottles.

À première impression, ce rhum est décevant. Puis on goûte des notes plus complexes avec sa longueur en bouche. Des notes de vanille et possiblement de whiskey. Une saveur que j'apprends à apprécier avec le temps.

On le vendait 45USD en 2014.

Nice with coke... Lovely and very decent flavour.... Only a mixer rum but good in cocktails

Really good Golden Rum and less than $20 a bottle where I live. If you have a few extra dollars I would definitely buy one of the aged Appleton rums, but this my favorite gold rum. Only gold rum that I consider a sipping rum.

This one was tough; not a great taste nor finish. Reminds me of a cheap whiskey.

Makes a nice rum & coke, but not much more to offer.
Can taste a slight hint of Jamaican funk, which mixes well with the sweetness of coke.

Definitely one of my "meh" rums. Needs plenty of cola to dampen its disappointing taste.

If you're looking for a dark rum to use as a mixer this is the one. It does not have the gasoline finish that Bacardi Gold inflicts on its drinkers. It's a general all-purpose party rum.

Cinnamon and ginger notes with buttery vanilla taste.
