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.

Have it in the cupboard and please a few people but it won't turn any heads
It’s a Jamaican standard and we bring back a couple of bottles each year.
Got no surprises in it. Funky, light and easy to drink
It's super cheap and tastes as cheap as it costs. It can be drinkable mixed with coca-cola but get ready for the massive headache on the next day.
drank this on last trip, in mexico, we was sick of tequila, this one with cola was a nice change ...
Nič, len základ, asi miešané drinky. Na samotné pitie asi nie.
This was the second Appleton rum I tried and I was shocked that it was only a small step down from the V/X, which was a few dollars more. It's not quite as smooth as that one but still pretty smooth. The taste is decent and it's a great value for being a regular ol' gold rum.
I like to use this rum in tiki drinks that calls for a golden jamaican rum. Not very tasty for sipping though.
Only had a miniature of this, but a bit bland for my liking. Nice taste, but just too little of it.
This is proper rum. It is very full and flavourful.
"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."

A decent Rum with a great sunset 7 out of 10
I was a moment to enjoy the cold Jamaican Rum on the rocks with a good taste and a great sunset view in front of me. I bought this glass of (double) Rum at the Nevi Bar in Summer Island - Maldives.
