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 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.

I use this rum for my Dark and Stormy or Cuba Libra cocktails, has slighty more flavor than the standard Gold Bacardi. Definitely not a sipping rum though.

Een met de hand vervaardigde blend die kwaliteit voorop stelt zonder daar een premium prijs voor te rekenen, dat is de Appleton Special Gold Rum.

Het smakenpalet is complex maar wel goed uitgebalanceerd, het volle karakter bestaat uit zoete appel, milde melasse met een vleugje alcohol. Omringd door de heerlijke zoete geur van appels en honing wordt de neus verleid, het is dan ook een verrukkelijke en zeer uitnodigende rum.
