Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Eye-catching chestnut color; flawless purity. Integrated, lean notes of molasses, spice, tree bark and nut. Creamy and honeyed at entry, then the taste detonates into an explosion of cocoa, vanilla and baked fruits. One of the great spirits of the world. (Mar 2012)
Appleton Estate Reserve is a blend of 20 hand-selected, aged rums, resulting in a rich, balanced flavor and a smooth finish. All Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums are 100% estate produced and bottled: The entire process of making and aging the rums takes place on the estate. Appleton Estate uses a time-tested combination of small-batch copper pot and column distillation to impart a distinctive character to the portfolio. The rums are then laid to mature in American oak barrels, where they develop rich aromas, color and sweetness before blending.
