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.
Mix with 1/2 a lime and some cane juice and you have a great daiquiri with just enough cask flavor to stand out and give some depth. Not too shabby.
Decent rum, good caramel color, harsh on the nose, great mixing rum, pour over ice add some apple juice and enjoy, I'd prefer other rums to this one but easily available at your local supermarket at a good price. Ok rum, just mix it baby!
I received a bottle from my daughter who visited Jamaica. I think this might be a good rum for mixing, but I like mine straight, and this rum lacks the smoothness that my other favorites deliver.
This is a good rum. I have to revisit this one, because the spices caught me off guard. Not one I would normally chose for sipping neat (first thoughts).
Very good rum with a right price. Often Jamaica rums are bottled 100 proof or more. Appleton use always the right proof. Recommended !
Deze Appleton Estate rum heeft een volle en krachtige karakter die voor lange tijd heeft gerijpt. De warme gouden kleur wordt omringd door een warme en bevredigend aroma. Appleton Estate VX is een perfecte blend van 15 geselecteerde, gevarieerde stijlen van rum die allemaal gerijpt en handgemaakte eikenhouten vaten. Elke rum heeft voor een minimale periode van 5 jaar tot 10 jaar gerijpt in de gebruikte Jack Daniels vaten die door Appleton wordt gebruikt om tot haar unieke en karakteristieke smaak te komen.
Pot Still underpins this Jamaican offering and for me, makes it my go to for Rum and coke.
Not as good as the 12 but it is not the same price.
Thid has Appleton signature taste mixed with coke it is okay. Not that expensive
Full of exotic fruits, not bad. I was surprised how good this is. of course this is not your fireplace, slowly sipping stuff.
Overall looks like whisky cousin but after couple of glasses I used to drink it alone and enjoying it for itself specific taste and aroma.
Ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ooooooooooooooooooooooooooook
Title says it all. Nothing better for a rum and coke. A really good squeeze of lime makes it even better.
Have liked this rum since I first tried it. I usually have a bottle on hand when guests are over
It's ok, it sort of tastes like straight Bacardi white, but somewhat better, it's what they serve you at the bar, if you want Captain Morgan, you pay the extra.
This rum is really not for me but that being said, it is fairly smooth for the price range.
This has a strong after taste, but I found it easily mellowed in juices. I didn't care for it mixed w/ Cola or straight up.
ein schöner karibischer Rum der auch auf Eis oder pur zu genießen ist. Alkoholisch. Aber vollmundig.
Its a pleasent rum to drink, and mix with. Not a cubain but a very nice rum for mojito, very well balanced and with nice vanilla flavors
This is a good upgrade from Appleton's Special Gold, being smoother and more flavorful. Better as a mixer but I'll sip in a pinch.
Update: Thank you to those who recommended this with apple juice. AJ smooths it out... or I should say this rum subdues AJ's overly sweet flavor. Use an organic 100% juice mixed 1:1.
Yep it's ok nothing to write home about you could service without it
I found this to be light in color and flavor. Smooth in the mouth with a harsh finish and spicy/wood flavor, some citrus notes and not too sweet. Reminded me of a of a weak whisky? I could have it over ice, or mixed. Not bad for the price.
Not bad, but not great. I enjoy this rum, but won't go out of my way for it.
I really enjoyed the taste of this rum with splash of coke. .It has a nice spicy peppery after taste good stuff.
Not so bad, but a bit too harsh compared to other V/X rums, and it tastes too much of a cheap brandy instead of having a smooth distinctive flavour.
