From a single estate in Jamaica’s Nassau Valley founded in 1749, Appleton Estate 15YO Black River Casks Rum is named after the river that provides the limestone-filtered water used to make it. Barrel aged from a blend of copper pot and column still rums, it’s a full-bodied and festive spirit with notes of vanilla, orange peel, roasted coffee and nuts. Enjoy it neat, over ice or shaken in cocktails with a hint of spice.
