This one is better than the regular 12 year old and a very nice surprise. I also like the shape of the bottle. Oak from nose to finish, very fresh with fruits and spices. This is a sipper and not a mixer. Price to quality is very good.

Really solid Jamaican. For me, however, more of a mixer. 74/100

Let it be said up front, I am an Appleton fan.Nice flavor profile. Dried fruit, banana, perfect wood ripeness, spice and at the end the potstill portion with solvent. Complex.Also has something fresh like an Agricole.The 43% limit the potential, if you want more, you should reach for the 2003, this resembles it the most.At 25€ a bargain and a Gästerum, for which you do not have to be embarrassed and to which I myself like to reach.😉 Super in the Daiquiri.🍸The bottle is also really nice.

It is not particularly exciting

Even though I usually prefer rums from continental South America, this Jamaican rum is good. There seems to be relatively low sweetness, more spiciness buy still well rounded experience.

Tasting side by side with the 8 year, this is a lot more enjoyable. Almost no alcohol taste. More wood, and a beautiful mouthfeel.

In the nose spicier and more complex than the Appleton 8, but not quite as pleasing.In the mouth similar, a nice chocolate note resonates and develops in the finish to a chocolaty coffee bean.Ene great mix of the for me classic Jamaica profile and Foursquare. Super entry into Jamaica, also exciting with a somewhat herbal note in addition to the spices.Who stands on wood is better off with the 12er, who likes it a little sweeter and fruity should reach for the 8er. With me it depends on the mood which I prefer.

just wonderful this combination of light Jamaica funk with the classic caramelly, sweet rum notes that most other Jamaicans lack
1 May 2022
Not my favorite, but price performance fully okay. In the finish quite sharp, but you can already tell that it is an honest rum.

I have old bottle of AE12 that I want to compare side by side but it seems either same or very similar. The smell and taste of this rum is a synonym of word rum. If somebody utters word rum, this is the taste and smell I immediately recollect. There is supposedly certain amount of esters but it is very low and hidden behind a sophisticated smell and taste. In both 👅 and 👃 you get wood, vanilla, cocoa, raisins, sour fruit like lemon or green apple, nicely balanced sweetness with spicy notes of pepper. This is simply one of my most favorite rums out there, especially for a fabulous price. 18.3.2023 I need to remedy a bad riise taste so I had fo reach out for verified good rum.

The nose is quite nutty, almonds mainly. There's also caramel and wood. Not too fruity or funky. Burnt dark sugar dominates the palate but tobacco and oak keep things from being too sweet. The finish is medium to long and has lots of chilled out oak and espresso coffee notes. It's a good rum to relax with. Nothing to shocking but the quality is there.

Ok a rum that smells better than it tastes.

Would pair great with a nice cigar

Nothing to know your socks off, but pretty good. A little heavier on the nose than on the palate. A quintessentially rum profile
21 April 2023
I have to say that this rum is beautifully smooth and balanced in taste. There are nutty, vanilla and citrus notes. The citrus is quite acidic and I find that I can also smell sour apple and that doesn't really suit me.
24 December 2022
I was expecting a little less spice and sweetness and more wooden and smoky taste. You can get little bit of wood and cask upon the first sip and then it hits you with a peppery almost hot kick. Mild finish - a tad dissapointing. Enjoyable.

A very good rum especially at the price point
19 March 2023
Very very good...balanced, makes you happy!

Backobst - Pflaume, Leder und Holznoten in der Nase, sehr angenehm und rund. Die 43* bleiben mild, dunkles Caramell, Holz, Frucht setzen sich fort. Backpflaume bleibt am Gaumen. Angenehm langanhaltender Abgang bei dem sich die Holznoten halten.

This is one that for me isn't as good as the unaged reserve exclusiva ..the flavours are there and deep in depth but for once prefer the cheaper option . Apples 12 rare casks Peppera, cherry's ,smoke Dry chocolate , cherry , oranges I lived. On a diet of this while in Jamaica so I have become quite fond of it, hence the score improvement
