Shop the Appleton Estate Collection in St. Elizabeth at the newly reopened Rum Tour gift shop.
The charms that are included in this collection were selected because of the special meaning that they have for Appleton Estate and the folklore and culture of our island. The Appleton Estate Bottle Charm is the nexus of the collection and is a symbol of CELEBRATION & FRIENDSHIP. The Pineapple 🍍 is featured on Jamaica’s Coat of Arms and represents HOSPITALITY and the warm WELCOME that we extend to everyone who visits the Appleton Estate. Patoo is the local name given to the Jamaican brown Owl πŸ¦‰which is endemic to Jamaica and the charm represents WISDOM. In Jamaican folklore the River Maid or River β€œMumma” is the guardian of the river and makes her home at the river head or deep blue hole and the charm is a symbol of our water source. The crocodile 🐊 is also featured on Jamaica’s coat of arms and lives in the Black River which starts on the Estate and symbolizes power. May these bracelets bring you blessings and good luck always.

This year we’re all into food pairings with our different blends.
Our 12 Year Old Rare Blend is best enjoyed with chocolatey desserts which help to open the rich vanilla and subtle coffee notes, as well as complement the cocoa notes found within.

20180120 22:54 - 00:37 Shed with @davidbowley1986 smoking a Sons of Anarchy Black Crown toro

Summary
All in all, I'd give it a 10/10 and I'd venture to say it rivals a decent Cuban any day. Very satisfying smoke.

Prelight and dry draw
Warming, robust notes of wood and leather.

First third
Mild start, medium body, initial creaminess with billows of pure white smoke. Developing from the creaminess on the tongue into an almost winey, even lightly syrupy viscous texture on the retrohale. A richness to the flavour comes through towards the end of the first third, with an accompanying sweetness, and ageing leather. Hints of autumn leaves, and a lingering finish on the palate.

Second third
Loving the wisps of grey blue smoke from the nose after the draw, almost oily in the way they float through the air. Still lots of pure white smoke on the draw and exhale. A dryer, more herbal grassy note comes through with the white wood notes, with less sweetness and a more medicinal flavour. Very strong ash game, very consistent burn too, through the first and second thirds, two touch ups required.

Final third
I was too busy enjoying my brothers company and the last of the cigar to properly note any further development with the smoke! The obvious heating up towards the end, the increased spice, and the need to use a nubbing tool are all givens.

The tiki gods have answered our Mai Tai prayers. The Mai Tai at the Ritz Carlton is spot on perfect. The sense of pride and attention to detail are what set this apart from any Mai Tai we’ve ever had when vacationing in Hawaii. Israel did an awesome job and is one hell of a bartender. If you find yourself in Maui, his Mai Tai is not to be missed! Faith restored!
