Appleton Estate V/X rum is comprised of 15 rum blends that have been distilled from molasses in copper stills and aged between 5-10 years in oak casks (hence the "V/X"). After blending, Appleton V/X receives additional aging to unite the flavors before bottling.
Mit diesem Rum habe ich meine Unschuld verloren.
Habe in den "90er" Jahren diesen Rum nach Hause gebracht,
als es Hierzulande nur Coruba, Bacardi und Stroh-Rum im Handel gab.
Da habe ich bemerkt das Rum etwas leckeres sein kann.
Etwas deftig in der Nase, im Mund jedoch Aromen von Zuckerrohr, Karamell, Toffee.
Im Abgang alles schnell weg.
With this rum I lost my innocence.
In the "90s" I brought this rum home,
As there were only Coruba, Bacardi, and Stroh-Rum in the market.
Since I noticed, that rum something delicious can be.
Slightly strong in the nose, in the mouth however aromas of sugar cane, caramel, toffee.
In the finish, everything is quickly gone.
Just as a sign of respect for the people making the rum, I won't give it a 1. If you want to make me mad, serve me this rum. Harsh, bad tasting, this is by far the rum I like the least.
Can't appreciate anything about it. Received one for a gift years ago and its still half full.
Cant really recommend to anyone. If you like agricole rums, you can try this. It has similar taste, but still...
This is an incredible gold to mix with. Dr. Pepper all day long!
The nose was disappointing and the taste was disappointing. I didn't expect much at that price point but other rums at that level were a lot better
Mixed rum with strong bitter flavour and fast finish.
Den er sådan nogenlunde. Fik den gratis i gave, så smager alt godt.
This bottle from Appleton estate have very distinctive taste. It is lovely - interesting tangy-burning taste with hint of vanilla and full hand of nuts, especially walnuts. On the other hand, the taste si gone like morning mist when you swallow sip of this rum. And some could say the burning is bit rough and I respect that. Somehow, it's still good sipper, the smell is pleasant and sweet and the taste is full enough for sip or good drink. Te value/cost ratio is good on this one. Much better than with Signature blend one. I definitely must try the 8 Year one, because some people say, it's even better than this one.
My favourite go to standard rum, great taste, great price.
Good rum, more expensive but the taste is pretty good. Above average
Bon produit pour nettoyer les toilettes ou pour offrir à quelqu'un que vous détestez. Le qualifier de rhum est une grossière exagération. C'est simplement un mélange d'alcool, de sucre et de colorant.
Good product to clean the toilet or to offer someone you hate. To call it rum is a gross exaggeration. It's just a mixture of alcohol, sugar and coloring.
Even though I may be Jamaican this is not my favourite rum at all... I usually always keep a bottle around but I'm usually not the one drinking this.
I have been enjoying this rum for years, it's actually the standard I rate others against now. It's a sweet and delicious flavour. I took a trip to Jamaica two years ago and my only regret was not buying the exclusive bottle while on the tour of the distillery! I'd buy that in a heartbeat now after trying some more "top shelf" rums.
Smooth drinking rum nice aroma and great versitile rum for all occasions
The latest marketing choice to re-label as WRAY will hurt these OG's of the Jamaican Rum world.
There may be a bit of fallout but they can handle it.
Imagine if this were a rail rum? Now you're talking!
Kind of harshness going down but good with anything
Ein für seinen kleinen Preis wirklich richtig guter Rum. Pur, oder für Cocktails, für beides gleich gut geeignet. Leichtes Vanille Aroma.
V tohle jsou hodně cítit banánové tóny. Chuť je celkově ostřejší.
Go for the 12 year instead. This is to much alcohol taste.
This is my go to rum for rum and coke. Incredible flavours make it tasty so you can enjoy the drink without smashing it down.
Run pas trop intense, assez smooth. Ça finit bien la soirée.
Typical Apple Estate... very rich flavor..smooth..for me its better than the 12 yo.. one of the rums I drink the most
