Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Appleton Estate Reserve Rum is a blend of 20 different rums of varying ages, the youngest of which is aged eight years in used Jack Daniels whiskey barrels.
This rum is produced in the Nassau Valley of Jamaica on the Appleton Estate from locally sourced sugar cane and limestone-filtered water.
Nothing spectacular about this rum. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad but it's just not good either. The aroma is slightly astringent with hints of spiced, vanilla and possibly cocoa. The taste is very warm and astringent with hints of spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Second taste is the same but I do pick up a citrus note as well. I am disappointed this rum wasn't as good.
En fin rom lidt kraftig i det. God til drinks.....
This is definitely a step up from the V/X for a nominal price increase.
Smooth and balanced. A little suger and some wood but not to much of either. There is an unusual earthy taste that is hard to place.

This is another must try. No, it's not as good as the 12 but its still a top notch rum.
I have drank this often and find this blend to be on top of its game. Its really easy to drink and does not need much time to open up as similar rums in this segment.
Not as smooth as the 12 year but better than the vx this one is perfect for a Tiki cocktail or on the rocks. Orange peel, crystal clear spring water and a bourbon-like aftertaste make this rum perfect for an introduction to Jamaican rum perfection...without breaking the bank.
Bought some of this in Florida, and didn't get to finish the bottle. Pretty good value, as it is the least expensive on the Appleton menu. I drank it on the rocks which may have toned down the flavor of vanilla.
Deze heb ik kunnen kopen toen ik in jamaica was een super lekkere rum en gewoon weg heerlijk met cola beter dan de 12 j aanrader
but not as good as the delicious Appleton Estate 12-year old, and actually not even all that different from the V/X, so not worth even bothering to try if you're looking to taste something unique. As per usual, I wouldn't turn it down, but I wouldn't make a special request for it, either.

Bien que moin von qu'un rhum vieilli, bon rhum rapport qualité prix
Not as good as the aged high end rums but I got a bottle for 12 dollars. If your short on cash this is definitely the one you want. This is my new cheap rum sorry no need to ever buy bacardi again.
People I know either love this or hate it. A little too high on my sweetness scale but it obviously makes a lot of people happy.
Better than V/X but not nearly as refined as Extra. Descent flavor for a blend of 40 rums but not as deep and rich as I'd prefer.
This is a nice honey color, with smells of spice, honey, and maybe a touch of orange. Taste is good, but the aftertaste is a bit harsh. Not quite sweet enough to be in my top rums. Still, an above average rum.
Although I noticed very little difference, I think this is better than Appleton V/X. Be drunk straight, do not ruin him with the mix.
All purpose rum great in mixed drinks and in cola. Can't go wrong.
I had a few of these on the rocks with a lime wedge. I didn't get much in the nose. Got some Carmel flavor but not as smooth as I expected.
I've tried to drink this neat or on the rocks; but I just can't enjoy it that way.
Mixed with a half shot of pepsi though (I hate coke) and I can drink it all day. Along with El Dorado 8 year old; they are two of my favourite mixers.
I have given it a 5 only because I rate on my ability to enjoy it neat or on the rocks.
Appearance: Dark Gold with a reddish tint
Nose: oak with hints of spice and a little sweetness at the tail end that lingers in the nose
Taste: tons of oak and woodiness upfront that is than overtaken by carmel and dark chocolate notes. The tail lingers with some sweetness and the wood comes back and sits on the palate for quite some time.
Mouth Feel: one of the "thicker" rums I've tasted. It definitely let's you know you are drinking it.
this is one of the better mixing rums u can find..
A bit more body and texture than the V/X, so a nicely finished and reasonably good sipper, but still affordable enough to have as a (REALLY TASTY) mixer (for some REALLY NICE friends).
