Recommendable to most
I expected it would be a bit more deep and smooth. Some worked well, and other didn’t.
In overall I think the nose is okay. I sense the Appleton notes, but the flavor is not as deep and smooth as expected. Good way to start if you want to challenge your sweet rum tooth.
It is in different league than 12yo Rare blend - not that chunky and not that "super tasty".
It is in different league than 21yo - no smoke no oak.
This is exceptional, unique* drink which will be hard to skip. Dry, a bit spicy, not very complex, but pleasant taste which refers to the Appleton class.
Cons: a bit strange, aggressive on the nose.
*Reminds me MG Master Select )
$58 CAD Smells pleasant. Taste is smooth, especially compared to the AE signature blend. Damn near no burn. It’s growing on me with every tasting. A bit of a bite at first, then some grass and wood with the sweetness, ever present.
Too bad it’s a limited edition, I guess I’ll have to try some of their other releases. Anyways, it’s damn good and hard to describe. I’m used to the sweeter rums so it’s a great comparison of something different. Quite nice.
The nose has discernible funk but for me, it’s not overripe fruit but a kind of mushroomy smell that is initially most prominent. With some time, ginger and banana do come up and become central. There is also a good kick of nose-clearing, wasabi-style alcohol. That alcohol kick carries over onto the palate. There is a general woodiness some banana and honey on the palate and finish. With time a nice banana bread taste emerges on the finish. Interesting to try, it’s good!
- vůně nasládlá, jemné mléčné karamelky, závan dřevitosti, vanilka, mix bylinek
- chuť kopíruje vůní, ty mléčné karamelky jsou velmi příjemné, o proti AE 12 už sladší, méně Jamajská, více do AE 21
"Sweet vanilla and milk chocolate are backed up by some really nice zesty notes of oak. It ends with wafts of toffee and caramel."
