Appleton Estate V/X
Tasted as part of a rum tweet tasting rganised by Appleton Rum and The Floating Rum Shack this was a great opportunity for me to try more of a spirit that i really haven't spent as much time with as i should, i've spent time with the usual white rum and dark rum and coke, but with some recent rum casked whiskies i've wanted to try more rum and so this was a great opportunity.
A blend of rums matured in smaller barrels before marriage in cask. Appleton Estate V/X offers a wonderfully rich nose, lots of buttery sweetness.
Nice easy drinking rum available from the guys at Master of Malt
Initially a quite strong note of demerera sugar and treacle scones, with undercooked dough and citrus fruits, especially orange
stewed prunes with dried fruits and hints of orange peel with treacle scones
sweet and sugary
