Appleton Estate VX Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Wow – sit up straight and pay attention. Big, rasping aromas of wood, spice and sugar come crashing in.

    Palate: No let-up, with enveloping flavours of toasty spices and big-hearted toasty oak, this is determined to make a statement.

    Finish: Gentler than expected: sweet spice and nicely integrated oak.

    After 5 visits to Jamaica I have become addicted to Appletons VX. A simply sublime rum which just slips down your throat and tingles your palette with flavours of the Caribbean. Could easily become an alcoholic on that stuff.

    Sampled the reserve in country brought a bottle of it back. Its a good sipping rum no mixers no ice no water. Straight up, it rocks!

    A good quality mixing rum that can be sipped but I would rather leave the sipping to the sublime Appleton Estate 12yr.

    My neighbor brought me a bottle home from Jamaica and I was completely blown away. This stuff is incredible!! And that's coming from a Kentucky boy. We know a thing or two about whiskey and bourbon.

    Very nice! Going down a treat this.....will try the 12 year old next and then the 8. Was a toss up between this and some more Bacardi Gold.... Made the right choice ;)

    I have now tasted this fine spirit, and I can testify to its excellence. Smooth and rich, everything rum should be.

    One of the finest drinks I've ever had. A mate brought me some back from a cruise and I loved it, so much so I bought a bottle. Can't wait to try the 12 year old stuff. Fantastic with Pepsi and even better neat. Love it!
