Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old 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. 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.
|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.
Wine Enthusiast 95 points - This rich, silky sipper entices with caramel and vanilla aromas. The palate opens with deep toffee and caramel and a drying dose of oak, then the finish dazzles with spice: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, black pepper. (Jun 2019)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Notes of oak, spice, and fruit are in harmony on the nose of this aged rum. Clean in the mouth, hefty spice coats the tongue followed by sumptuous flavors of bananas foster, browned butter and pineapple cake for a delicious treat.
