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.

Nice Jamaican rum, a litle harsh to be a sipper but a good choice for an affordable mixer. Update: at least for my taste, I perfected the white grapefruit daiquiri with this rum.

I keep a bottle around to accompany my Mount Gay Eclipse. Pretty basic rum with good flavor and great price.
