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.

    Of course it may not be the best spirit in the world, but for its price range, this is unusually good. I enjoy sipping this rum, no ice or anything else, just straight. Great flavour.

    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!

  • The Colonel 30 March 2013

    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.

    got a taste for this rum while on holiday in jamaica. before trying this rum, i usually drank ovd but appleton is much smoother to drink and warm. back home now and can't seem to find it locally

    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.

  • Lee Bagnall 7 June 2012

    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!

  • Grant Melville, Falkirk 10 March 2012

    I've never tasted it myself, but it's exceedingly popular with my Jamaican friends, which is perhaps a certification of its authenticity.

  • Mark, Bristol. 4 June 2011

    Fantastic! This along with Chairmans Reserve are the best sipping rums for under £20 without a doubt. Smooth, complex and doesn't have a huge sweetness like other rums mentioned here.

  • mr p n ash 13 March 2011

    i have tried various rums but the 2 that i love well sorry no im telling fibs i love all of the havana club blends there nice and 7 yo is smooth n smells like an aged sherry or maderia but appletons vx its very smooth and fruity either on its own or mixed if you love a warm rich fruity drink with a nice gentle kick buy this it rocks

    If you think this tastes weak stick to "Navy" Rums.Try it with plenty of ice and a splash of water...excellent.

  • Anonymous 7 May 2010

    This tasted extremely weak and would not purchase again!

    Good quality rum, but a little light on flavour. Have to spend a bit more money for an aged rum I think. Great Mixer in cocktails though.

  • Hugo 3 September 2009

  • L 22 January 2009
