Appleton Estate Joy Anniversary Blend Reviews
Tasting Notes from Stuart P
Nose: Extremely complex, with beguiling notes of melon and apple, then richer notes of brioche, dark chocolate and sweet spice.
Palate: Rich and mouthfilling. Intense flavours of Demerara sugar, crème brûlée, espresso, clove and cinnamon. Great balance between sweet spice and dryness from the oak.
Finish: The Christmas spices and toasty oak notes linger for a long time.
Comment: Even though this is a blend of some very old rum, the oak notes never dominate. Instead, what we have is a delicious rum packed with fruit and spice, with no single element taking over. A masterclass in blending from one of the industry's legends. A highly appropriate name, too!
