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.

Not the best but not bad. Definately not the smoothest drink I've had straight but would mix decently with other beverages.

First had this in Jamaica in 1972. I was a rum and Coke guy just out of the army. My taste has shifted to aged, sipping rums, so this is no longer an option. I have fond memories though.

Yup,, agree with all the others, nice mixer - would pick others in preference however, still a good rum

Not a huge fan of this rum straight up. Better mixed but I'd do the 12 yr. all day.

I tasted yesterday, a bar nearby home of my parents. I thought it was much worse, and instead I have to say I was surprised.
It is a decent golden rum...nothing special of course, but not bad.

Rhum de base de la grande maison jamaïquaine... À ne pas tenter pure, ce n'est pas exceptionnel mais en cocktail ou pour cuisiner, c'est très bien.
