Dark, brooding, mahogany hue with a rich bold, spicy character and rounded, smooth, warm nutmeg and orange flavours.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Possesses a dark amber hue with notes of banana flambee, cinnamon sticks and melted chocolate. Dark chocolate also shows on the palate, along with a hit of molasses and sweet vanilla oak. A lovely sumptuous, benchmark rum. (Mar 2013)
Appleton Estate is the oldest and most famous of all of Jamaica`s sugar estates. It is nestled in the fertile Nassau Valley on either side of the Black River in the Southwest of Jamaica. The origins of Appleton Estate date back to 1655 when the English captured Jamaica from the Spaniards. Frances Dickinson, whose grandsons Caleb and Ezekiel were the earliest known owners of the Appleton Estate, took part in that conquest of Jamaica, and it is believed that Appleton Estate was part of the land grant that Dickinson received as reward for his services.
|Jamaica’s Nassau Valley is rum heaven, where Appleton Estate has been creating premium blended rums since 1749. Master Blender Joy Spence selects and oversees the blending of all Appleton Estate rums.
