Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum is crafted from rums hand-selected by Master Blender Joy Spence, all aged for a minimum of 12 years in oak casks. A deep and inviting rich bronze colour. The bouquet has fruity notes, dark cocoa and hints of spicy cinnamon. Deep oak aromas appear, the result of the rum's 12 long years of tropical ageing. On the palate, a delicate molasses taste is highlighted with notes of smooth vanilla and vibrant orange peel, and complimented with subtle hints of coffee and oak. A luscious, bittersweet finish. Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum is a superb benchmark rum and should ideally be enjoyed neat and savoured with friends. It also makes a delightful premium Old Fashioned or Sidecar.
