Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Extra Reviews

Funky and spicy yet extremely smooth

If I could keep just one rum, this would be it.

Appleton 12 gives homage to rum and cachacas ancestor – the batavia arak. Where other rums try to imitate vodka (I'm looking at you, Brugal) Appleton 12 unleashes the full potential of rum in all its glory. It somehow manages to marry the arak funk and spice with smoothness the like of El Dorado 15.

Sip it neat, on the rocks or throw it in a Mai Tai. You can't go wrong with this rum.

My favorite yet

I've tried so many different liquors. From whiskeys (including bourbons, scotch, single malts), to vodkas and rums. I can say that this is hands down my favorite liquor. If I had to be stranded in an island with one bottle of any liquor, this would be it. This rum is smooth, inviting, has a beautiful finish that does not linger but lets you know you are sipping on a fine, aged spirit. Exceptional. I will keep coming back.

Amazing!!

Brought a bottle because everyone said it was good for making Mai Tai's!! I wouldn't waste another drop in a cocktail, it deserves to be sipped on it own. It's gorgeous!!

Not the worst I've had, but not impressive.

Compared to may other rums that are great for sipping (smooth, rich, and nicely oaked), this rum was too hot and unappealing for my tastes. It's not the worst I've had, but by no means worth the merits I've read. Perhaps it's just not for my palate. I typically love the Plantation XO, Mount Gay XO, Ron Zacapa 23yr, El Dorado (12 and 21yr). Hell, even the Pyrat XO and Zaya 12yr are far superior to this.

Very disappointed and unimpressed.

Excited!

Just picked up a bottle of this in Dalaman Airport Duty Free for £19!!! An absolute steal judging by the reviews here, I'm so excited to try it. I'll return with a review and a rating once I have :)

Best sipping rum for the price

The 12yr is truly amazing! Apple and pear notes with a great finish! For the price this is the best rum ive had!

wow! great value here

My favorite sipping rums are 2 to 4 time the price of Appleton 12 year extra. This rum stands up to all of them. Amazing value! I prefer it to the Appleton Master Blenders Legacy.

Better than the 21.

I prefer this to the 21 year old. Pleasantly astringent, like a pot of cold, stewed Lapsang Souchong tea with pencil shavings.

Improves as your palate evolves

After comparing 7 other rums in the same price range, I went back to this one as my favourite. The other ones were either missing something or had too much of one thing. This rum is very well balanced and it gets better every time you go back to it as your palate evolves.

not bad, not amazing

Nice, rich, creamy, but too simple when compared to finest Single Malt Scotches.

This is an excellent rum, which, in comparison to the non-aged VX Appleton rum, is most definitely worth the difference in cost. It is a richly flavoured rum which allows the drinker to wallow in its taste. Definitely recommended, definitely drinkable.

accurate

For once I _completely_ agree with the description from Masterofmalt.
This would be worth it at twice the price.
I would be interested to taste the 21 year old!
