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 smooth easy to drink I prefer it straight . Rich I taste and yet affordable to drink . I have drank Myers dark rum for yrs but I just tried Appleton Special Gold and was very impressed with the taste and price .

As entry level rums go, you could do A LOT WORST. This special rum is perfect for mixing if you want to still taste the flavour of a Jamaican styled rum in your mixed drink. Aromas of caramel, spices, toasted wood and a hint of rubber.
A medium finish of burnt caramel, toffee, with hints of banana and brown sugar.

I hate to rate this just a 5 considering it is a great entry level rum, but the rest of the Appleton greatness has spoiled me. I would keep a bottle of this on my shelf for mixing at all times. A good starter for Jamaican rum punch, with a little Wray and Nephew or Rum Bar Overproof to kick it up a notch... or two.

Not one of the fantastic Appleton Estate rums... I've heard this is made at the industrial Wray & Nephew distillery. This is harsh golden rum made for the lowest of mixed rum drinks. Much better than the bottom shelf swill, but still... just pony up the few extra dollars for the V/X and you'll get exponential betternesss.

Beginning of the range. Could do worse, much better available though...
