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.

As entry level rums go, you could do A LOT WORST. This special rum is perfect for mixing if you want to still taste the flavour of a Jamaican styled rum in your mixed drink. Aromas of caramel, spices, toasted wood and a hint of rubber.
A medium finish of burnt caramel, toffee, with hints of banana and brown sugar.

I hate to rate this just a 5 considering it is a great entry level rum, but the rest of the Appleton greatness has spoiled me. I would keep a bottle of this on my shelf for mixing at all times. A good starter for Jamaican rum punch, with a little Wray and Nephew or Rum Bar Overproof to kick it up a notch... or two.
