Appleton Estate Reserve Jamaica Rum

distilled by J. Wray & Nephew Limited - Jamaica

label image
Light mahogany and honey rum distilled from molasses. Aged in used Jack Daniels whisky barrels.

Blended from 20 different rums selected by the Master Blender Joy Spence, the aroma carries the Appleton signature of brown sugar, spice and hints of dried fruit.

The honeyed, satin texture palate carries notes of spice, orange citrus, caramel and balanced smoky oak and cedar. Followed by an adequately long, smoky finish accented by baked, spiced fruit notes.

Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

Arctic Wolf's review    

.
This is the second review in the series  I am completing of the Rums in the Appleton Estate family of Rums.  The Appleton Reserve rum is constructed from a blend of 20 aged rums, aged for approximately 8 years.  The rum is intended to be perfect for those who wish to be introduced to a complex rum style meant for sipping neat and for using in sophisticated cocktails.

Here is an excerpt from my review:

This has a spicy zip on the tongue that is full of citrus peel, oak spice, candy apples, cloves, and cinnamon.    There is, (in spite of the softness of the rum on my tongue), a sharpness and intensity in these spicy flavours.  Underneath this spiciness are additional flavours of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla.  At the bottom of the  palate I find an earthiness which seems almost brooding to me.
