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.
Easily consumable in a bind
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
As a mixer it's ok but no more than that, would I buy to keep on the shelf........ No probably not as there are better mixers out there!
I tasted this years and years ago in Jamaica. Perfect to mix but sipped neat there are way better rums. If the price is right just buy it
While I know this rum isn't really meant as a sipper, I'm giving it a go neat.
On the nose there is banana, pepper, salt, caramel, cloves and some sourness. The palate is caramel, light oak and pepper. Very thin and watery; simple flavours. The finish is coffee and very short.
Overall a very thin and simple rum, but there also isn't anything very off-putting.
"It is young and raw and slightly heavy on alcohol but it does still have rich banana, honey, a little treacle and of course that unmistakable and almost undescribable Jamaican funk."
