A couple of weeks ago, I helped a friend of mine move to his own apartment. As a thank you for the help, my friend bought me some rum. The rum he provided me was the Appleton Estate V/X Jamaica Rum.
Now onto the rum.
The first thing I did was to savor the smell. The smell was similar to Captain but a little sweeter. After the first sip, it seemed a bit smoother. Once the burn finished, I downed a shot, the burn was smoother, yet it still burned.
With the shot out of the way, I then moved onto my favorite drink: Rum and Cola.
This rum was perfect with the cola. It tasted almost like a combination of Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan with cola.
Overall, very pleased with this rum. I would recommend it.
