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.

This is what someone buys you when you say you like rum and the just grap anything on the shelf
Not brilliant but not bad either for mixed drinks
Lacks the Ooomph of the V/X
For mixin' not sippin'. Does a darn good job at that. Very light body with some sweet rummy tastes. For the price, it gives you all you could expect.
This is a cheap okay rum. Take this to a party, hand it in and enjoy mixed with what ever. Not a sipper but the price you pay for this what do you expect
This bottle is simply to load up drinks to get the evening going. Keep this at any bar near a body of water and enjoy
Sugar 0 GPL.
Should be in a thin bottle to match the thin taste. Use a mixer, and with the thin taste you will need to add a bit more than usual. A friend had this in a Mojito and I tried one as well. Hard to taste any rum and I watched the bartender make it. Tried it neat and the taste was there for a moment and then it was gone. Not offensive in taste but it does compete with the Bacardi mixing rums, and for fans of Appleton's on vacation, I can see why it's used.
Use this for your run of the mill cocktails and punch bowls. Won't make them excellent but does it's job.
As a mixer it's ok but no more than that, would I buy to keep on the shelf........ No probably not as there are better mixers out there!
Very spirit taste kind of a rum. Definitely a mixer.
I was a moment to enjoy the cold Jamaican Rum on the rocks with a good taste and a great sunset view in front of me. I bought this glass of (double) Rum at the Nevi Bar in Summer Island - Maldives.
This is proper rum. It is very full and flavourful.
"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."

Funky 6 out of 10
I like to use this rum in tiki drinks that calls for a golden jamaican rum. Not very tasty for sipping though.
