Appleton Estate VX Jamaican Rum

Member Review by WhatsNewinBooze:

On my recent trip to Jamaica the only thing that made the heat and humidity tolerable was sipping on the Appleton Estate VX Blended Rum. A huge step up in quality from their basic Appleton Special Gold Rum, the VX is a blended rum comprised of various types of rum that are aged between 5 and 10 years, blended in oak vats and aged for a few more months in oak. The end result is rum that is somewhere between a white and dark rum with aromas of molasses, brown sugar and vanilla. The flavors of maple syrup are balanced with oak which tones down the sweetness of this rum while adding citrus and nutty flavors. The finish is creamy, mellow and dry but is long lasting just enough for you to get to your next sip. This is an excellent introduction into the aged rum category that doesn't break the bank.

Amber with a deep copper cast. Moderately full-bodied. Reminiscent of stone fruits, flan, herbs. Thick texture. Very viscous, with a rich silky feel that is delightful. Quite pronounced in its fruity components. Unctuous big finish.
