Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old is a true expression of the Appleton Estate 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 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. Rare Blend should be savoured with time as a sipping rum or in select elegant cocktails.
