Un produit très bien fait mais qui ne correspond pas à mes goûts

Found it to be quite enjoyable. Made a fantastic old fashioned. I think I'm a fan of the funk.

Typical Jamaican rum, but I think I prefer the 12 year.

Appleton is my go-to. The 8 yr is good. 12 is better.

Rhum assez simple pour un jamaicain, en accord avec le prix.

Works in drinks but plenty good to sip. Love Appleton so much.

Tried this with El Dorado 12 year + Angostura 7 year + Flor De Caña 12 + Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solero 23

Loved the richness of flavour of this rum.

Am concerned about sugar levels in rum and my amateur palate couldn’t detect much in this unlike the Zacapa!

Tried Appleton 12 Year Rare Casks side by side with the 8 Year Reserve. Both are of great quality! The 8 year burns and bites a little less (both are minimal in both products) and tastes good but it's definitely not as complex as the 12. That said, it's still an excellent rum! I say it's equally good but both are fairly different from each other. It's properly sweet and delicious. It reminds me of the old V/X (which I rated a 7) but it tastes more complex and somehow more smooth than the Appleton V/X. I'm not sure why the 8 Year Reserve is rated so low but regardless, I grabbed a bottle after realizing it might not be coming back for a while. I highly recommend snagging one yourself.

To the nose I was getting molasses which I was happy with, but the finish was weird. Maybe it would be better mixed.
