Au nez on retrouve bien l'odeur du chêne dans lequel il est vieilli.
Très généreux en bouche voir un peu trop avec quelque touche vanillé et fruit sec.
Petite touche d'amertume en final mais qui n'est pas assez prononcé pour en faire un rhum d'exception.
This bottle is different from Appleton's 12 year. The Rare Blend offers a different complexity, attempting to be more balanced that the original 12 year the leans more towards the sweeter side of the spectrum. It's a bit dryer too. Still, its a must try.
I'm not a fan of Jamaican rum so was hesitant to buy this one. Was pleasantly surprised that it was too funky. Nice as a supper but not too expensive for a mix.
I like this rum, especially for the low price of only $32.99 (TotalWines 2016)!
It's a tad sweeter than both the Appleton 12 and 21 (but still rather dry as are all the Appletons I've tried). It's very, very close in taste to those, but slightly better IMHO. Notes of oak, almond, vanilla, molasses, and nutmeg. Try blind tasting this against the 21 - you may even prefer this to that, as I did.
You know what, I could sip on this rum for a while. It has a great Carmel and molasses nose, and the taste is mild with a little character. Little too tart for me, but not obnoxious. Have a try, but there are better between 10-15 years old
