Appleton 12 Year Old
Tasted as part of a rum tweet tasting rganised by Appleton Rum and The Floating Rum Shack this was a great opportunity for me to try more of a spirit that i really haven't spent as much time with as i should, i've spent time with the usual white rum and dark rum and coke, but with some recent rum casked whiskies i've wanted to try more rum and so this was a great opportunity.
Appleton Estate 12 is a blend of rums aged for between 12 and 18 years. Dave Broom describes this as "the finest aged rum from Jamaica"!
Go grab a bottle of this from Master of Malt
lovely sweetness comes along honey edges with condensed milk and gentle treacle scone and jamaican ginger cake with fruit cake mix, without the fruit.
Seriously full of ginger and honey sweetness and hints of grated ginger
short and fruity with honey
