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.

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.
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.
Only had a miniature of this, but a bit bland for my liking. Nice taste, but just too little of it.
"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."
