Appleton Estate Sig Blend

Formerly known as V/X and no longer carrying an age statement, Appleton's signature blend has been aptly renamed Signature Blend. A blend of rums matured in smaller barrels before being married in oak casks then bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Peppery and spicy, a green, grassy note with wonderfully buttery toffee and a hint of pear drops.

Palate Medium body, quite spicy with black pepper and chilli, a little butter and vanilla.

Finish Slightly astringent, medium length.

Reviews for Appleton Estate Signature Blend
Otherwise, great rum.
Do not like the new stopper on the 1.14L bottle. Prefer the twist top.

It's alrite
Nice enough as a sipper but for £10 more you could get a nice bottle of plantation which surpasses by a mile in my opinion

Not the man it used to be .
When Appleton decided to freshen up the range possibly due to them losing the Sainsburys contract by deleting the VX and calling it the Signature they lost a generation of customers because this is what we gave if we wanted to bring something a bit special to a function.
It's no longer special
The virgin splash reveals spice cane warmth it tries to be next level but falls short in satisfying , making you yearn for the original.
Mixed with ginger beer or coke is what this rum is bred for but just not interesting enough to make you keep coming back .
I dont think Appleton realized what they had with the VX .

Excellent drink I
I can honestly say without a word of a lie. That I have never tasted rum. This good. It goes down really smooth. And I would rate this as one of the best I have ever had the privilege to drink .

first bottle
Really nice for the special offer price £16, instead of £ 21). Opens up nicely after 15 mins- Cinnamon apple nose with mellow spicy marzipan alcohol.
Vanilla, toffee, apple palate. There's a heart to it that I have found in Wray & Nephew's - dry, tropical and fruity, cinnamon, raisin and a very enjoyable 'fusty' tinge (think this is the Jamaican 'funk' you read about). Mouth feel, satisfying and medium thick. Finishes long for me.. same flavours as palate; sticks around after diminishing to seared brown sugar vanilla. This is an amateur assessment: I lack broad experience of rum- No experience at the high end of the market. Seems logical that it feels like halfway ground between white rum and navy rum; a comfortable place to be. A reviewer somewhere suggested mixing with pure apple juice. Tried that and it's delicious.

I'm not experienced enough to give it a star rating. From experience of supermarket rums- an easy 4.
