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.
Easily consumable in a bind says it all.
Excellent, deep, strong flavor. Just look out for the kick!
Different flavors exist for this. They say has Oak, but I find very little of this flavour for this.
Nice smooth rum
Nice in mixed drinks
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.
I am a fan of the Jamaican style of rum. The v/x is a nice intro to this style
One of my top choice rums
Smooth and easy sipping.
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!
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.
