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.

For mixin' not sippin'. Does a darn good job at that. Very light body with some sweet rummy tastes. For the price, it gives you all you could expect.

This is a cheap okay rum. Take this to a party, hand it in and enjoy mixed with what ever. Not a sipper but the price you pay for this what do you expect

This bottle is simply to load up drinks to get the evening going. Keep this at any bar near a body of water and enjoy

Use this for your run of the mill cocktails and punch bowls. Won't make them excellent but does it's job.

Aye, this rum dances the line between heaven and hell. Decent aroma! The flavor be spicy, with hints of vanilla and... raisin? This be not an overly sweet rum, but definitely not for sippin'... not without a lot of better rum in you first! There be worse rum to be had. Still not sure? Flip a doubloon. Heads, you try a better rum. Tails, you try a better rum.
