Appleton Estate 8 Year Reserve Rum was crafted by master blender Joy Spence to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the brand. Aged for 8 years, it includes reserve pot still rums in the blend. Bottled at 43% ABV it will be available from spring 2020. This 8 Year Reserve Rum is part of a global relaunch for the brand which includes new packaging and a sleeker bottle shape.

An excellent 8 year old Jamaican rum from the Appleton Estate, boasting waves of runny honey, toffee, oak spice and hints of caramelised nuts. Terrific value for money, and more than suitable for using in a Rum Old Fashioned, we will say. A relatively recent addition to the portfolio of one of Jamaica’s most popular rum brands, Appleton 8yo is a sweet, smooth sipper and lends itself very well to quality cocktails.

Appleton Estate Reserve is a blend of 20 molasses based pot and column still Jamaican rums. Appleton Estate Reserve Blend was introduced in 2016 as part of the brand’s relaunched range. It replaced the former eight-year-old and has a similar profile being a slightly sweet sipping rum that also lends itself to cocktails.

Inspired by the vibrancy of Jamaica, its land and the joyful nature of its people, 8 year old reserve is our most versatile expression of aged rum, revealing aromas of spicy fruit and oak, followed by hints of honey, vanilla and our signature orange peel note.

Tropical fruits including mangoes and overripe bananas lead on the nose, along with a bit of pot still funk and burnt caramel. The palate shows fiery cinnamon, leather, and tobacco, along with brown sugar and toffee, before getting drier towards the back with cedar wood. The finish is short, offering molasses and Jamaican allspice.
