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.

Starts as a lighter, fruity taste and ends with more of a whiskey, smokey flavour. Longer finish than most, with a spice that lingers. More dry then sweet.
Standard amber rum, infact right now its my bar's house pour. I know ive only given it a 6 but for me a 6 is a good standard score. Theres a lot better around but you could do a lot worse!
If you want a good example of the Jamaican style, this is a good way to go at about half the price (in most areas) of the 12 year.
Appleton is usually regarded with positive views. I wonder if it is really justified, while this bottle isn't bad, it isn't superb neither.
Good well around.
My wife bought a bottle of the Reserve and the V/X for my birthday last year. This is very good to sip, but at a price where mixing isn't a sin either.

"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."
