Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum is a true expression of our Master Blender's craft and passion. The rare, golden rums that make up Rare Blend are hand-selected and have all been aged for a minimum of 12 years. Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum is a 'minimum age' rum as indicated by the number 12 displayed on the bottle. The rum is aged in number one select American oak barrels. The long years of tropical ageing give it its rich mahogany hue, confident woody character, and smooth, robust taste – all of which make a bold statement of extraordinary quality. A constantly evolving taste experience – you'll find deep oak, fruity, and cocoa notes, followed by delicate molasses, vibrant orange peel, rich vanilla, subtle coffee, with a hint of toasted oak and almond. Appleton Estate 12 Year Rum has a bittersweet and luscious finish. Appleton Estate Rare Blend should be savoured with friends and time, as a sipping rum or in select elegant cocktails. Enjoy!
