Now this rum i found very smooth with very little burn, however cannot find a distinguishing flavour or aroma, maybe a little citrus but actually quite bland. Very nice with a dash of ginger beer. Disappointing for my first taste from this great estate.
I love Appleton Estate 12-year, which is great. This one is simply a lower version, not so smooth, lacks the tones, mainly the barrel wooden taste (oak flavor).
Good for mixing I suppose.
Well, don't get me wrong, this is still rather good rum, but it have its, not so good, strange sides. The first is straight from bottle smell - hard, rough, petrol. You must let it breath for while to wear it out to something more sense-liking. Second thing is the specific sour taste. That would be OK, if this would be bottle of Bourbon. But is strange when it comes to bottle of rum. Signature Blend reminds me Bourbon with every sip. I actually like Bourbons, so I have only problem with this strangeness, but some folks would not appreciate that. So, this bad boy will go better with Coke or in cocktail, than as an enjoyable sipper. I enjoy it from time to time neat, because the strangeness is interesting. But common rum folk will surely rather avoid that.
This is a very good choice for mixing cocktail that requires a full bodied rum.
I love it in a Mai Tai, for example.
I think that it's the same rum previously labelled as V/X.
It's also good for simple cocktails like a Rum Old Fashioned or simply on the rocks.
As I read other reviews I have one impression: either every user has quite different taste or every bottle of this rum contains different blend.
Mine was all vanilla. A lot of vanilla. And I do not like vanilla rums much. Also, it was rather „disharmonic“. And „bitter-sweet“ - which, stand alone might be a good thing. But not in this case.
So, huge dissapointment. I'll never buy this rum again.
Rum di melassa molto dolce, buona apertura con note di canna da zucchero, ma persistenza inesistente e finale poco gradevole.
C'è di meglio.
"The initial sip is quite smooth but the palate soon heats up and feels the black pepper again, this time with some chilli and ginger spice."
