Appleton Estate Special Gold

Jamaica | Gold

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.

There's not really anything else to do with this other than mix it.

De los rones basicos que alguna vez cualquier ronero tomo en un cuba libre.

This is not a 'sipper' but at £16 a bottle is a lovely rum and coke. You still get a rum' kick'and flavour as long as you don't try to drown it in your coke. Recommended as a go to cheap rum to take with coke, plenty of ice and a slice of lime as a double in a small glass. Cheers.

Moving from bourbon to rum was made easier withbthis appletons, you get lots of the vanilla and citrus notes from the bourbon influence right away. Then a big hit of fruits and delicate spices. Its not a game changer but it has its place and its always enjoyable without being exceptional.

Perfect for Rum cocktails, but not ideal as a sipper over ice. Its what I'd choose if I wanted a rum and coke.

A little bit sharp, but tasty rum, to drink on the rocks or mixed.

This is my pick of the cheap bottom-shelf rums available in my local supermarkets. The smell is more promising than the taste, although it will add a more complex flavour to your cocktails than some other budget rums. Not the smoothest finish, as you'd expect at this price (£12ish).
I used to buy this in my student days, when I couldn't afford anything better, but now pay the extra for Mount Gay Eclipse as my go-to mixing rum.

Quaffable when mixed or blended. A go to for a daquiri or cocktail. Not sure I would sip it. Perhaps over ice with soda.

I had one drink of Appleton Estate Special Gold while vacationing in Oaxaca Mexico. Very bland bottle and label design. Very strong alcohol to the nose and palate if neat sipped. Mixes rather well with your favorite soda drinks though.
