Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
The color and aroma of Appleton V/X is as good as any rum I have but taste and after burn are not as good as its 12 year old brother or other high end rums. But when you consider that a bottle is only $16, this one is definitley worth having it in your rum cabinet.
Rum is very simple and smooth . It can be sipped while drinking - yes. Difficult taste and aroma you will not find here - an entry-level blend. Drink pure in the rocks or cocktail. Without frills. I would prefer to add money and buy 12 years.
and it will show it's quality. Somewhat aromatic, but just too harsh and burning for my taste to drink it pure or with water/ice.
I am using this one for cocktails that need a tasty rum, the mixing takes away the harshness and burn.
This was my first Jamaican blended rum and it became my go to for a few years. As I was exposed to more rums it quickly dropped down a bit but I still enjoy a glass on ocassion. Usually with mix though.
Sweet, a little harsh, and full of spices. Appletons flavor has come to be synonymous with Jamaican spiced rum.
A bit harsh, but not bad in a typical tropical fruity drink.
OK, men är nyfiken på några av de andra Appleton som jag tror är betydligt bättre!
Docela dobrý rum. Jamajská klasika. Lepší než Ron Abuelo 5y.
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
