The nose is really nice and fruity, especially right after pouring, when the esters are strongest. Pineapple and banana. The palate is quite different, very spicy and lots of molasses. Pretty good but not quite outstanding

All my Tastings and Scores are purely based on “Rums under £50”. I rarely look at Rums over £50 for my YouTube.

Fuckin' ,,A,, as Appleton. I thought that there would be a huge difference or leap between 8 & 12 year version. But no. The only difference is price and a slightly more prominent smell as well as taste in this 8 year version which is more rougher, but in a good way. 12 is more subtle and smoother while keeping the ssme taste and smell. Other than that, I cannot tell the difference. However, I will compare them against each other directly and revisit the rating but boy I love Appleton Estate.

I have to say that this one is best used in a mixer.

Une fois les vapeurs d'alcool passées, le nez est bien trop sucré pour moi : épais, sirupeux, très fort en banane et en miel. Le goût me surprend : une première vague brute, avec un fort parfum de fumé qui laisse tout de même deviner des arômes de fruit confit, de banane (seul rapport avec le nez à mon sens). En y revenant un peu plus tard, j'y trouve davantage de subtilité, beaucoup d'épices aussi. La finale me semble longue, poivrée, presque piquante. A mon sens, un rhum qui se boit sans grande difficulté mais que je ne choisirai pas en première instance !

On the nose there's lots of banana and honey. And a roasted note that gives a subtle spiciness that isn't unpleasant. The palate is slightly sweet with a good amount of fruit. Banana with a subtle hint of orange. Molasses and earty notes keep it well balanced. Smoke is the main presence in the finish with some oak and a touch of spice. It's a step up from the Appleton's Signature Rum and a solid Jamacian rum for the price.

Un fort goût de fumé, de colle.. La bonne nouvelle c'est la bulle de goût banane qui apparaît au milieu. Un mélange d'épices avec une pointe de piment en assaisonnement. C'est bon mais c'est pas la fête du slip non plus.

Very good rum, but not nearly as funky as other jamaican rums

Similar to the 12 but less sweet, fruitier and shorter finish

Etwas medizinisch würzig
