Appleton Estate Extra 12 (86-Proof, 12 Year Old)
This rum features a very attractive deep red amber color with touches of polished mahogany.
The aroma is quintessentially Jamaican pot still rum, reminiscent of aging cellars, fruit preserves and a generous amount of sugar in the raw. On the fruit side there are notes of bananas, caramelized peaches and black cherries, intermingled with butterscotch and crème brûlée atop a succulent platter of toasted oak, assorted nuts and rich caramel.
Despite its robust aroma, this rum is pleasantly smooth in the palate, where it manages to deliver on all the aromatic promises without overpowering the senses. Enjoy this rum in a large snifter, preferably neat.
