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.
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.
Very smooth easy to drink I prefer it straight . Rich I taste and yet affordable to drink . I have drank Myers dark rum for yrs but I just tried Appleton Special Gold and was very impressed with the taste and 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.
"It is young and raw and slightly heavy on alcohol but it does still have rich banana, honey, a little treacle and of course that unmistakable and almost undescribable Jamaican funk."
