Tasty, but not quite great
I purchased this bottle because it was specifically called out in a cocktail I was making, it worked will in the drink. I hadn't tasted the V/X out of the bottle until one of my monthly tastings when a guest asked to try it. I sipped a little, put the cap back on and decided to keep the bottle on my mixing shelf.
rum not a bad introduction to the Jamaican style
This rum is good for those who are looking to move up from the standard bar selections, great mixer, very good with a squeeze of lime and a pinch of sugar, and it is tolerable as a sipper.
Appleton makes some very good rums. This one is ok, good for mixers while tailgating at a Buffett show, but not my top shelf liquor. It has decent clor, fair aroma, and the vanilla hints go good with coke zero.
Has a strong, raw cane smell/taste to it, but reasonably smooth. Compared to the 8 or 12 it seems like an out of focus version of the older Appletons. Still, it makes a good drink and you can sip it.
Ots a resonable aged rum, with a short pasa In oak barrels, toó muchos alcohol smell and favor. Only forma mixing whit cola and juice fruits

"A touch of vanilla and ginger. There is still a hit of molasses on the nose and some spiced black pepper. The rum is quite delicate initially. It is a hot spicy rum."
